Homeowners Insurance Action in Florida - Things to Come?

Aaron Stein, Long Island Insurance BY AARON STEIN

Today State Farm Insurance Company announced rate increase requests averaging over 70% in the state of Florida, with requests of over 200% in some areas! The bulk of this increase is likely to be approved according to National Underwriter, an industry magazine. Allstate has taken a different approach, arranging with several smaller insurance companies to take 200,000 of their customers off their hands for homeowners insurance.

As I have indicated in previous columns, there is no one solution to this issue and so creativity and innovation is called for.
