NEW YORK, April 15, 2013 — Whether you are married or living with a partner, the process of ending a relationship can be extremely complicated. Many aspects of your life will be affected, including your insurance needs, according to the Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.).

“When discussing the financial aspects of a divorce or a break-up, insurance considerations should be a key component in ongoing and final decisions,” said Jeanne M. Salvatore, senior vice president and consumer spokesperson for the I.I.I. “Dividing up property, changing homes, and altering life insurance policies must be discussed to make sure that both parties, as well as children or other dependents, are financially protected after the separation is completed.”

Maintain Your Revenue Stream with Effective Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Planning

NEW YORK, October 3, 2013 — The difficulty many businesses had reopening after Hurricane Sandy is a reminder of the importance of having a disaster recovery plan and the right type and amount of insurance, according to the Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.). In fact, the I.I.I. noted that an estimated 25 percent of businesses never reopen at all following a major disaster.

 

“Business owners are busy building their businesses, but they need to invest the time and money to develop a disaster recovery and contingency plan,” said Loretta Worters, vice president with the I.I.I. “Having the proper insurance to help keep their business going when disaster strikes is also crucial.

Deer-Vehicle Collisions Down 3.5 Percent, Yet Claims Costs on the Rise

NEW YORK, September 30, 2013 — Fall is peak season for deer and auto collisions and that means drivers along the nation’s roadways need to be especially vigilant, according to theInsurance Information Institute (I.I.I.). Deer migration and mating season generally runs from October through December, and causes a dramatic spike in the movement of deer population. As a result, more deer-vehicle collisions occur in this period than at any other time of year.

 

In fact, an estimated 1.22 million deer-vehicle collisions occurred in the U.S. between July 1, 2012, and June 30, 2013, a 3.5 percent decrease from a year ago, according to an analysis by State Farm, the nation’s leading auto insurer. However the average insurance claim for this type of collision in the same time period was $3,414, up 3.3 percent from the previous year with costs varying depending on the type of vehicle and severity of the damage.

The ability of insurance companies to determine more precisely the risk of auto accidents has fostered competition and, for millions of Americans, has reduced auto insurance expenditures to their lowest levels in eight years, according the Insurance Information Institute(I.I.I.).

The average annual expenditure for U.S. auto insurance coverage this year is expected to total $839, less than the $842 the typical U.S. driver spent for coverage in 2004, according to I.I.I. forecasts (see Figures 1 and 2). When adjusted for inflation, auto insurance expenditures are expected to be 19 percent lower in 2012 than in 2003 and lower than at any point in nearly 20 years.

There are essentially two types of health insurance plans: indemnity plans (fee-for services) or managed care plans. The differences include the choice of providers, out-of-pocket costs for covered services and how bills are paid. There is no one “best” plan for everyone. Some plans are better than others for your or your family’s health care needs, but no one plan will pay for all the costs associated with your medical care.

Here is a brief description of the types of available health insurance plans: Indemnity Plans; Managed Care Options; and Government-sponsored Health Insurance
