Driven to ... drive?

The newest study from #TheHartford and #MIT AgeLab reveals that #Boomers  view driving as the key to a more active and independent life--and that many of them plan on staying in the driver's seat into their 80s and 90s.

Wondering whether your home or business would be covered against damages caused by landslides, such as the one that recently struck Oso, Washington?

To get coverage, you would need to buy a Difference in Conditions policy. 
 
These policies can be purchased through a surplus-lines carrier or as a stand-alone policy, and often cost more than a standard homeowners insurance policy. Homeowners insurance policies typically exclude landslides as well as earthquakes, floods, and mudflows.
 
Flood and mudflow-caused damage is covered under flood policies issued by FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

The #ThreeMileIsland nuclear power disaster happened 35 years ago today.

Other more recent nuclear power plant disasters have had graver consequences, but Three Mile Island stands apart as the "brand-name" incident that shoved debates about the safety and cost-effectiveness of nuclear power out of the realm of "what if."  

How did the insurance industry respond to the disaster, and what have been the insurance implications of this event in the years since?  To learn more, read "Insurance Coverage For Nuclear Accidents." http://www.iii.org/articles/insurance-coverage-for-nuclear-accidents.html

Today (3/25) marks the anniversary of the Triangle Shirt Waist Factory fire. This 1911 tragedy, which claimed 146 lives--many young women laborers--ultimately gave rise to stronger worker protections, building codes, and enhancements to workplace safety.

Helping to usher in these breakthroughs were insurance businesses, whose focus on life-safety and fire prevention have resulted in safer workplaces for all. 

Read to learn more about the vital role played by insurers in helping businesses operate more safely by reducing risk of injury or death in the workplace:

Insurance—what it does and how it works
Introduction
The mission of the Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.) is to improve public understanding of insurance -- what it does and how it works.

For more than 50 years, the I.I.I. has provided definitive insurance information.  Today, the I.I.I. is recognized by the media, governments, regulatory organizations, universities and the public as a primary source of information, analysis and referral concerning insurance.
