Signatures

Auto UW Folder – Mileage

XXXXXXXXX,

Below is a copy of a letter that our State Farm corporate office is mailing you.  We have not received a current odometer reading for the vehicle referenced below, so our corporate office will update your annual miles to the national average of 12,000.  This will result in a higher premium and possible billing questions.

There is still time to get this taken care of before the coverage changes.  Please email, call or text the odometer reading to (xxx) xxx-xxxx and I will notify our corporate office.  If you’ve mailed the survey back, please let me know so that I can double check it has been updated.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Fire UW Folder – Home Alert Documentation

XXXXXXXXX,

Below is a copy of a letter that our corporate office mailing out in regards to your alarm discount on the homeowners insurance.   It’s that time of year where they are requesting an updated alarm certificate in order to continue with the discount it provides you on your policy.

When you get a chance, please send a copy of the certificate and we will get it to the right people.  If you have any questions, please let us know.

STS – Team Members

Please email me back today to let me know how this turns out.
Process:

  • If the number is listed below, please give them a call
  • You can do an out of book search for the customer through ABS.  If you need help, please let me know
  • If no number, call previous agent office and get customer’s phone number and policy information
  • If you don’t reach them, add to P+ and assign to the Working Quotes SMP

NECHO Screen Shots:
Ask the other office to send over the screen shots of their policies in NECHO.  Ask them to press P and print to their PDF printer so that you get everything you need.

Quotes:
It is important to compare the premium in the previous state to the XX rates.  Use the savings to bundle life, hospital income, etc.  If there are any coverages missing such as rental, S, or Z coverage, go ahead and add it to your quotes.

Marketing Opportunities:
If they have a new employer, what is the big opportunity for an account we don’t want them to “leave behind”?
They may need individual health insurance, as this is a qualifying life event.

PLUP Renewals

(Sent from agent or BOD person to the PLUP renewal person)

XXXXXXXXX,

This comes up every year on policies that are not with us, and the customer should expect it.  In fact, tell them “It’s that time of year where we need to get the policy information for your umbrella renewal…”

Check the customer folder for last year’s information.  Get the current dec pages and submit to UW through NECHO.  They need to see the required underlying limits are met.  Also, this is a sales opportunity for you to bring everything together with State Farm.  Please run quotes and talk things through with the client.

Please document Household Comments with the contact information for the underlying insurance agency so that this is easy next year.  You may get lucky and there are already notes that you can get started on this without bothering the customer just yet.  Check the customer folder for saved emails – they may contain contact information for the agency as well.

Let me know how it goes and when this is complete.  Don’t wait too long – underwriting will send out a non-renewal letter if they don’t get the info in time.

BOD – GDD & AFD

(Sent from BOD Person to TM who cancelled vehicle)

FYI – When you cancel a vehicle, double check if it has an AFD and the other vehicles in the household only have GDD or no discount.

In this case, we could have cancelled the XXXXXXXXX (GDD) and do a vehicle change on the XXXXXXXXX (10 Year AFD).

Most of the time this will save them money, but sometimes it won’t because the CRI on the GDD policy is higher.  If you do it like I suggest, it is important that you tell the policyholder what you are doing for 2 reasons.

  1. They will think you cancelled the wrong car
  2. They won’t know that you went out of your way to save them money.  We need to constantly reinforce how we are on their side.

DSS Info

XXXXXXXXX,

Thank you for your interest in our Drive Safe and Save Program.  Information is available online at State Farm.com
