What gets overlooked

An interview excerpt with Jeff Chester, Vice President

Interviewer: What often gets overlooked before a hurricane?

Jeff Chester: Looking into your insurance policy is vital. We’ve had clients that were hit by major hurricanes that thought they had, for instance, a $10,000 deductible like they would for a water line break or some type of catastrophe throughout the year. But, their policy may say that if there’s a named storm that you have a collective $100,000 deductible for all your properties and you really need to get with your insurance agent, broker, carrier, whoever it is that you’re working with and find out your exposure to a hurricane in particular? And whether it’s any different than a day-to-day event?
