E&O – The Next Generation ^FF/UM

Catherine L. Trischan, CPCU, CIC, CRM, AU, AAI, CRIS, ARM, MLIS

^FF^UM Denotes this course is approved by Fireman’s Fund and Utica Mutual for E&O loss prevention credit.

Advances in communication and technology have presented great opportunities for our insurance agencies. Along with these opportunities, though, come new E&O challenges. How do we handle the customer who wants to do business via text message? How do we manage the employee who wants to work on the road from his laptop or cell phone? How do we create websites that are informative and consumer friendly, without increasing our E&O exposure? How has the use of Facebook, Twitter and other sites changed the way we do business, and what additional steps must agencies take to protect themselves against E&O in this new world of social media? We will discuss these issues and more as we explore the Next Generation of E&O.

NFIP Reforms –Changes 2012-2016

Rita Hollada, CPCU, CIC, CPIA, AAI, CPIW

The passage of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 (BW12) heralded the start of sweeping changes to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP.) In the ensuing four years, several of the Congressional mandates have been reversed but other provisions have been established by the Homeowners Flood Insurance Affordability Act (HFIAA) and other legislation. Additionally, administrators of the NFIP have developed new procedures and requirements for the program.

The focus of this review will be the legislative changes occurring between 2013 and 2016. Every proposed revision will not be discussed, but rather they will be categorized and summarized with the intent to provide a guide to the current requirements and provisions of the NFIP. Concepts that will be discussed include new definitions that affect rating classifications; lender requirements for zone determination and proof of insurance; policy fees and surcharges and the reestablishment of grandfathering and the reformation of coverage as well as other recent initiatives and changes.

Hold on Tight – The World is Changing! (HO Issues, Drones, Autonomous Vehicles, Ride Sharing, Flood and Excess Flood)

Steven D. Lyon, CPCU, CIC, CRM, AAI, ARM, AIS
Lyon Consulting Services, LLC

With all the fast paced technology changes happening in the world, the Insurance Industry is struggling to understand and keep up with them. Many of our policies that were written decades ago, never anticipated facing some of the exposures we face today ! If you are not familiar with  smartphone applications like: Uber, Lyft, DriveHubber, Shuttle, Airbnb, Flip Key, Airpooler, and more; millions of your clients are !   The problem is, using these programs can be dangerous (if not deadly) to your insurance health. 

Did you know that, one out of almost three flood claims is now occurring in non-special flood hazard areas?? That’s where banks don’t make you carry flood insurance. After Superstorm Sandy, many people were unsatisfied after dealing with FEMA.  Maybe it was because they expected their flood policy to respond like their homeowner policy. It wasn’t designed to respond that way, and it won’t. This class will help you understand the troublesome issues with the NFIP, and what you can do to make sure your client can obtain adequate coverage, through excess and specialty carriers. Don’t let your clients go uninformed about all these exposures.  

Registration opening soon.

Social Security: Maximizing Benefits Under the "New Rules"

Ash Ahluwalia

As a result of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 there were a number of important changes made to Social Security filing rules, including some transitional rule changes.  As a result, Social Security Income Maximization Planning just got even more complicated. 

There are over 2,700 rules that govern Social Security and a typical couple have 567 possible filing options. According to the National Social Security Advisor (NSSA), over 90% of filers get less money from Social Security than they are eligible to receive.  Furthermore, the Social Security Administration is prohibited from offering advice. 

So the need for professional advice on Social Security filing strategies is more important than ever.  Unfortunately, there are very few experts in this field. Over 10,000 people a day turn 65 and Social Security is typically their only pension. It is more critical than ever to get professional advice on ways to maximize benefits in order to ensure that "you do not leave money on the table"!
