Interested in an article on how independent insurance agents can help their carriers (and by effect, their clients) during the claims process. Specifically, what should agents keep in mind when handling a claim when they are working with the carrier? What is the best way to ensure that a claim is handled effectively and efficiently? What can they do to ensure that the process goes smoothly for their clients? The article will appear in an independent insurance agents’ trade association magazine published in Connecticut, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and Vermont and should be written for insurance agency principals who primarily write property/casualty insurance. Article lengths should be 1,500-2,000 words. Article deadline is April 6, 2018.
