The Awkward but Essential Art of Office Chitchat

POST OF THE WEEK BY THE INSURANCE GEEK
Well, here is an article (and this has nothing to do with insurance, I might add) I absolutely love! Who would have guessed it - that small talk and chit chat in the office, may just be mentally healthy in certain doses. I chose some of my favorite lines from this article as follows:
"People hire people they want to work with, not necessarily who’s perfect for the job."
"Remember: You’re More Likable Than You Think."
"Point is, you’re more likable than you think you are, so try not to judge yourself so harshly."
"I'll leave you with a warning: There are very few ways to have successful small talk in the office bathroom. It should go without saying that attempting to chat with someone while they’re in the bathroom stall is totally off-limits."
LOVE IT!

POST OF THE WEEK BY THE INSURANCE GEEK
We get a lot of questions from business owners about whether their company needs Worker's Compensation Insurance and many seem to make an assumption they do not, so here is the lowdown from the Colorado Division of Worker's Compensation Enforcement Unit:

Important Facts About Workers’ Compensation Coverage
• Any employer with one or more employees must have workers’ compensation insurance
• Part-time employees must be covered by workers’ compensation insurance
• Family members must be covered by workers’ compensation insurance
• Employees who do not receive benefits must be covered by workers’ compensation insurance
• A worker given an IRS form 1099 may still be considered an employee under the Workers’ Compensation Act
• Unemployment insurance taxes are not the same as workers’ compensation insurance
• Corporations or LLCs who solely employ owners must still either carry a workers’ compensation policy or effectively reject coverage with the Division to be in compliance.
Risks of Not Having Coverage

There are significant risks in not carrying workers’ compensation insurance. Fines can reach up to $500 per day and there is no limit to the total amount of fines. Non-insured businesses may also be ordered to cease operations. Finally, employers without coverage may have to cover all medical bills, lost wages, and permanent disability if their employee sustains a non-insured injury.

Keep the above in mind if you are a business owner and hire even one employee, whether part time or full time!

E-scooter riders lack awareness of rider liability, survey says | PropertyCasualty360

POST OF THE WEEK BY THE INSURANCE GEEK
Scooters, scooters, and more scooters I am seeing around town. People are jumping on them to get to where they want to go, but I don't think many are thinking about liability if involved in any type of mishap. Note that auto, homeowners and renters insurance policies DO NOT provide this coverage as confirmed in this article; and the scooter company sure is not going to provide you with any coverage. It is safe to say you are on your own, so be careful out there if you are renting scooters and even so, check into buying liability insurance to cover yourself by checking with an independent insurance agent like us. Accidents happen and even more so now with so many people talkiing on their phone and texting while they are driving. It is "driver beware" out there and watch out for the other guy or gal!

propertycasualty360.com According to a survey by VOOM, 53% of e-scooter riders have never thought about purchasing insurance coverage despite safety concerns.

Protect Yourself From Hidden Fees

POST OF THE WEEK BY THE INSURANCE GEEK
Please read this story about all of these fees and especially hidden fees many of us are paying. I think a lot of people just do not pay attention to all of the outrageous fees that are out there right now. They can make a serious dent in your pocket. Many times, all you have to do is call or email the company making the charge and there is a good chance you will get it deleted or waived. Get a little aggressive here and pay attention and don't keep paying so many of these ridiculous fees! I am always looking for them and so many times they are buried in the fine print or hidden another way. I always ask the question, "What the fee is going on here?!"

consumerreports.org Consumer Reports shows you how to protect yourself from hidden fees, as cable TV and cell-phone providers, utilities, airlines, and more pile on more fees that result in higher bills for consumers.

Have you filed a claim under any of your insurance policies? If so, how has the insurance company handled it? Was it to your satisfaction? Proper claim handling involves prompt contact with you by the adjuster from the insurance company, conducting an adequate investigation to glean what occurred and then hopefully making a payment to you that will make you whole again for the loss sustained. This is when you really find out “what you are paying insurance for” with those constant premium payments. There are differences in insurance companies and insurance policies; vast differences.

If you find yourself waiting, and waiting to be contacted by an adjuster after filing the claim, you find out quickly something is wrong. After the initial contact, if they do not continue to stay in touch and respond, it makes the situation worse. Of course, if they do not pay the claim or do not pay what they should, it puts you in a terrible position. Make sure you reach out to your insurance agent if you have problems at any point of the claim process. Agents are there to intervene if necessary by contacting the adjuster for a status, checking coverage within a policy to make sure there is coverage for the claim as well as confirming enough has been paid. This is part of the service that should be provided and expected from your independent insurance agent. Remember, we are not the insurance company and do not provide your insurance. We are the company that sells insurance on behalf of the specific insurance companies we have contracts with and represent. This is why we are called “independent” because we are a locally owned business that represents multiple insurance companies and not just one. Don’t let yourself be like Skeleton Pete here, waiting around for the claim process to move along like it should.

Trees, trees, and more trees. Riding around Denver today, it was amazing to see the downed tree limbs everywhere due to the late spring snow storm last night. It made me think about who is liable for what. Trees can be tricky, but for the most part homeowners are responsible for what falls into their own yard, so if your neighbor’s tree falls in your yard, it is typically going to be your responsibility for the clean up as well as any damage caused, unless you can show there is liability on the part of the neighbor. Your homeowners insurance would typically help cover the cost of removing the tree and remedying the damage it caused after your deductible; but be aware there is not much coverage for the removal of a downed tree or tree limb.

The same is true in reverse: If a tree on your property falls in your neighbor’s yard, your neighbor is going to be responsible for it.

If you see a storm coming like this, sometimes it just may help to talk to the trees as our buddy Clint is doing in this video. https://youtu.be/nn8YubD01sk

Insurance 101 - What Determines the Cost of Homeowners Insurance?

POST OF THE WEEK BY THE INSURANCE GEEK
Here is a pretty good video about Homeowner's Insurance. If you own a home and have a mortgage, the bank makes you buy this policy no matter what so you really should make sure you are getting the right coverage for a reasonable price. It is very important to insure that house of yours properly, because you do not want to be paying a ton out-of-pocket if you sustain that unexpected loss. I don't like paying for insurance as much as anyone else, but I know I need it and have to have it, so I might as well make sure I have something that is is a quality product. Remember, protection plus price equals value! https://youtu.be/rMDQVIe6zds

POST OF THE WEEK - Renter's Insurance

As the last of the Millennial Generation, born from 1981 to 1996, is graduating college and joining the workforce, there is now substantial evidence of their impact on the economy. One area of the economy that this impact, or lack thereof, can be seen is in the housing market. Substantially fewer millennials (12.5%) are owning homes than their parents did at the same age (Nova, 2018). This could be because of multitude of reasons including an increase in the median age of marriage, growing student debt, or rising house prices. Whatever the cause may be, the reality is very clear: more millennials are choosing to rent and do so for longer than any generation we have seen previously.

If you are a renter, millennial or not, you are clearly not alone. This has become a cost-effective option in a booming economy. Renting does not mean that you have not worked hard for what you own or your livelihood. In fact, it may be even more important to protect your belongings and lifestyle as you save for a home. This protection comes in the form of Renter’s Insurance. Many times, this insurance is required by a landlord for the sake of protecting the property. However, this insurance is often the only buffer between you and moving back into mom’s basement if something were to happen.

Renters Insurance is made up of three basic parts: property, liability, and additional coverages. Property, often called Personal Property, covers your personal belongings. If your apartment were to burn down, how much would it cost to replace all your things? Many renters do not understand that, even if one of their roommate has insurance, this likely will not cover their belongings. Each renter must have their own policy that covers their own belongings. This property coverage also extends to your things while they are away from the home. If your laptop is stolen out of your car, your auto insurance will often defer to the renter’s insurance policy to cover the replacement. If you do not have renter’s insurance, you may not be covered for an incident like this.

Liability coverage covers instances where you are at fault. This may be because your dog bites a stranger on a walk or you start a fire that causes damage to the apartment complex itself. Where many renters find themselves in trouble is that their liability limits are not high enough. If you are liable for causing damage to your apartment complex or get into a lawsuit, minimum limits will likely run out much quicker than you might imagine. If limits run out in instances like these, your personal assets, future wages, and more might be at stake.

Finally, there are additional coverages that may or may not be included on your policy. Just because you have a Renter’s Insurance policy in place does not mean you are covered for everything. The most basic polices often exclude things like Sewer Backup, Loss of Use, and more. For example, if the toilet overflows while you are at work from a sewer backup and destroys some of your personal property, you may be paying for those damages out of pocket if it is excluded on your policy. Similarly, if something happens that forces you to move out of your apartment while damages are repaired, you may be paying for additional rent if Loss of Use is not included on your policy. Make sure these coverages are things you ask your agent what options are available to you. A renter’s policy often costs less than $30 per month and these additional coverages are often only a few dollars per month more than a base policy might cost.

If you have questions about your current policy or would be interested in obtaining renters coverage, feel free to reach out to us at Madison. We can also examine your auto, homeowners, umbrella, life and more. We work nationwide and I would be happy to speak with you in person or over the phone to see how we might be able to help you sleep better at night by protecting your belongings and your livelihood.
