Insurance Essentials: Your Questions Answered

As part of our commitment to customers, both existing and potential, the Travelers Institute (the public policy division of Travelers) launched an initiative called Insurance Essentials: Your Questions Answered to help consumers make informed decisions about their personal insurance options. This initiative was introduced following Superstorm Sandy and other extreme weather events, which have demonstrated to us that many consumers need, or want, more help understanding their insurance policies and options. This initiative includes an educational Insurance Essentials Guide that covers topics such as how insurance works; types of homeowners and auto insurance coverages; condominium and renters insurance; wedding insurance; flood insurance; limits and deductibles; and basic disaster preparedness. Further, the Travelers Institute partners with independent insurance agents to bring an educational symposium series to their communities, also addressing local issues such as wildfires and hurricanes.
