Making a Change

Some customers are unaware that any changes that occur that would affect a policy or void information present in a policy in any way should be reported immediately. Changes such as selling a house, gaining new drivers, deaths, purchase of an unusual liability (trampoline, dog, jet-ski, etc.) and other changes should be reported as soon as possible so updates can be made to the policy.

In the event of a change, customers should:

  • Contact their agent and inform him or her of any changes.
  • Be prepared for any modifications to your policy generated by the change.

Some modifications to a policy could save you money. Be sure to notify your agent in a timely fashion!
