American Council on Consumer Interests Annual Conference
Thank you for that introduction. Good afternoon..nice to be here
with you today. I'll try not to bore you too much. This has to do with
insurance and I know most people have an aversion to insurance. It's that
aversion that has really put the consumer at a disadvantage. More so than
anyone taking advantage of the consumer, it's more this apathy that's brought
about the problem that I'm here to talk about today.
There are a lot of changes going on in the policy. A lot of changes
having to do with the rules. I can't go through all of it today, and a
lot of it is more technical than you would want to know about anyway. But
the gist of it is that some of the more important points you really do need
to know about. And the average consumer does have to get a better understanding
of this. It's really time to put aside the myths and start to look at the
actual wording, and some of the more important points of authority. These
are things I would like to talk about today.
Help on the way:
this content is local to your area in that it affects virtually everyone in your area, indirectly or directly: property insurance policyholders. When the next news stories run having to do with a local disaster such as a hurricane, earthquake, flood, tornado, fire, etc., perhaps think of those disaster survivors and to what extent you may have helped in their preparedness and recovery. Thank you for any help you give.
