Price is important but …

At point of claim does anyone care about how much their premium was? Choosing the coverage and insurance program that is right for you is most important. Your insurance company’s financial rating is also important.

No matter what rate a company offers for coverage, it is useless if they can’t pay a claim. There are many rating organizations, the most popular being A.M. Best. Most use a rating system A through F. Ratings reflect the financial security of a company based upon the financial information they are required to submit to the state.

MA Auto Insurance “Accident Forgiveness”

Many Massachusetts auto insurers now offer “Accident Forgiveness.”

Some companies make you buy it, some companies make you earn it.

Some companies will only include Accident Forgiveness if you have a perfect driving record, some will include it if you’ve had up to one previous accident.

Another company will give it to you only if you have a perfect driving record AND you’ve been insured with them for four years.

What is Accident Forgiveness?

Accident Forgiveness does not erase accidents already on your driving record. Instead, if you have the endorsement on your policy they will forgive future at-fault accidents.

Are all insurance companies’ Accident Forgiveness program the same?

No. Each company offers the program only to certain drivers. New drivers, or new insurers, or those with multiple accidents may not qualify.

Consumers placed with a company through the M.A.I.P. program may not qualify either. Check with your agent or company to see if you qualify.

Does Accident Forgiveness make sense for you?

Sometimes the Accident Forgiveness program is bundled with the “Disappearing Deductible” endorsement. Sometimes it makes financial & coverage sense to include the endorsement and increase your collision deductible.

MA Term Life Insurance

We recommended term life insurance when it comes to family protection.

It’s the simplest, most affordable, & most pure type of life insurance product.

The concept is:  you decide on a face value and a term for your life insurance policy.

The term can be: 10 year term, 20 year term or 30 year term. The longer the term, the more expensive the annual premium.

Face values for the life insurance policy typically range from $250,000 to $500,000 to $1,000,000 and more.
