My Auto and Homeowners insurance has jumped dramatically this year and my agent says it's because of the population explosion in the area...I come to find out that the company I have been paying for 40 years has hired a "Chief Diversity officer" and I suspect the Chief has a large crew of Indians to man it. I need to find a new insurance company that hasn't gone woke...can anybody help me here?
I'm not looking to make this political, just want to find a new Insurance company.
They've all gone woke. Here's the response I got when I questioned the increase here in FL.
"Thank you for your recent inquiry.
Your renewal premium increased in part due to a State approved rate increase. Homeowner premiums are calculated by groups. All the homes in each territory that are built with the same materials and have the same fire protection classification, receive the same base rate according to the loss history of that group of homes. The cost of reinsurance (spreading the risk to other companies around the globe) so we will be here for you after a community-wide disaster is also added to the rate. If you haven't had any losses I'm sure others in your group appreciate that you're helping to keep costs down, but that does not directly result in a better rate for your own policy. Other factors specific to your home will amend the base rate such as roof geometry, number of stories, year built because of the building code in effect at that time, and windstorm mitigation features. Then your premium changes according to your own policy's coverages such as windstorm, ordinance and law, and replacement cost for your contents. As your home gets older some credits, such as age of home discount, will decrease. Fees assessed by the State of Florida can also change.
Each year Tower Hill does an extensive analysis of all these factors to determine the fairest rates, and files our rate changes with the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation.
One of the factors in the increase to your premium this year was an increase in your Coverage A Dwelling Coverage due to Inflation Guard coverage."
