Starting with a New Insurance Company? Here’s What You Need to Know!
Posted by Risk Management Partners Insurance Agency on
When you decide to switch to a new insurance company, there’s some basic information you’ll need to provide to get started, such as your name, address, phone number, birthdate, and email address. You’ll also need to provide information about the type of insurance you’re looking for, like auto, home, or life insurance.
In addition to your personal information, you may need to provide information about your current insurance policy. This can include the name of your current insurance company, your policy number, and the expiration date of your policy, though this is most likely not required.
If you’re switching to a new insurance company because of a life event, such as buying a new car or getting married, you’ll need to provide information about that event as well. For example, if you’re buying a new car, you’ll need to provide the make and model, as well as the VIN number.
Finally, you may need to provide information about your driving record or your credit history, depending on the type of insurance you’re looking for. This may include providing your social security number. This information helps the insurance company determine how much of a risk you are to insure.
Providing all of this information to your new insurance company can seem overwhelming, but it’s important to be as thorough and accurate as possible. This ensures that you get the coverage you need and that you pay the right amount for that coverage. So, if you’re starting with a new insurance company, make sure you have all the necessary information ready to go!
