PIA Program: Flood Insurance Through The Hartford
Why care about this now? Hurricane season is around the corner, and it is projected to be an “above-normal” 2020 Atlantic Hurricane season. The uncertainty of the global pandemic is stressful enough; now is the time to ensure renters, homeowners, and business owners are properly prepared with flood insurance for this upcoming hurricane season. Flood insurance helps policyholders rebuild after experiencing flood damage —whether from heavy rains or a hurricane. And most customers don’t realize that policies often take 30 days to go into effect.
What is it? Since 2004, PIA and The Hartford have joined together to provide PIA member agents the opportunity to offer flood insurance through The Hartford. The Hartford is one of the largest flood insurance writers in the country, having written flood insurance through FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program for over three decades.
A few benefits of working with The Hartford are:
- Dedicated transfer specialist along with hands-on service from your local sales director
- Easy online quoting
- Fast flood zone determinations
- Online claims reporting
- On-demand webinars and training
- Special PIA member preferred commission levels for new, renewal, and transfer business regardless of volume
-If you are already writing business with The Hartford, but are not enrolled in the PIA/Hartford Flood program, please contact your local sales representative directly to begin receiving the preferred PIA member commission rates.
-If you would like to consolidate your flood book to one carrier, The Hartford has amazing customer service when helping agents rollover their flood book. Contact your local sales representative directly to begin moving your flood book, and start receiving the preferred PIA member commission rates.
