WHO WE ARE

North Improvement's COVID-19

Insurance Information Center

The Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), has impacted not only our lives and businesses, but also how state regulators throughout the USA are temporarily handling certain insurance requirements, such as when some payments are due and what insurance carriers must and are choosing to offer to customers/clients facing financial hardship and lifestyle changes due to COVID-19.
 
The below is a non-exhaustive list of state announcements pertaining only to certain Property & Casualty insurance products that may or may not impact you and/or your polic(y/ies) and premiums. We also provide a list of information about/from carriers with plans to provide partial personal automobile insurance policy premium refunds due to reduced driving.
If you are a client of ours, we have checked in on you, your family and/or your business and we will continue to do so, during the pandemic and after. We will also continue to notify you of changes that may be impacting the state(s) in which you have an insurance policy or policies
If you are not a client of ours and have questions about your existing policies, please contact your current broker, carrier, or your state regulatory department(s) for assistance, and if you are interested in purchasing new or additional coverage or having us become your broker, we remain open for business and ready to help!
