Urges Consumers to Have Adequate Insurance Policies

Manasquan, NJ – The National Council of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL), the nation’s premier legislator led insurance public policy organization, wants to focus consumers’ attention on disaster preparedness during this Hurricane Preparedness Week from May 1-7. This campaign serves as a reminder to people in hurricane-prone areas how vital it is to be properly prepared and insured for these storms and the damages they cause.

NCOIL President, CA Assemblyman Ken Cooley stated, “It’s crucial to understand the risks associated with not having the proper coverage when these storms happen. Hurricane season is fast approaching and I encourage everyone to review their policies and get covered. Having the right policy can help bring people peace of mind when these storms cause chaos.”

NCOIL CEO, Commissioner Tom Considine, said, “Something as easy as making a call to an insurance agent has the ability to make sure that homeowners don’t experience financial ruin when disaster strikes. After recent years of historic levels of storm activity, it is important now more than ever for people to evaluate the coverage they need and get insured. Additionally, beyond the insurance coverage aspect, people should develop a Hurricane Plan in the event that a disaster strikes. In recognition of Hurricane Preparedness Week, NCOIL encourages all people to be prepared this upcoming hurricane season.”

NCOIL is a national legislative organization with the nation’s 50 states as members, represented principally by legislators serving on their states’ insurance and financial institutions committees. NCOIL writes Model Laws in insurance and financial services, works to preserve the State jurisdiction over insurance as established by the McCarran-Ferguson Act over seventy years ago, and to serve as an educational forum for public policymakers and interested parties. Founded in 1969, NCOIL works to assert the prerogative of legislators in making State policy when it comes to insurance and educate State legislators on current and longstanding insurance issues.
