February 2017
Show Your Love

Hello again from your friends at Insurance Resources. We hope that 2017 is off to a great start for you and that you are reaching those goals set for the New Year.

As we move into February, two things come to my mind, Valentines and Veterans. Valentines Day gives us all a good reason to reach out to those in our life that we love. Please take time to let those people in your life that you love, know how much they mean to you. No one is guaranteed tomorrow; take time to let them know. Don’t forget your parents, your children and any others that you are blessed to have in your inner circle.

We also want to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to all the men and women that have served this great country. Without your service we know that we would not be living the free and blessed lives we lead. Thanks to you, Veterans, the United States is and will continue to be the greatest nation in the world.  We honor you and thank you.

God Bless America!

Citizens Depopulation Makeover

Citizens has implemented a new way to handle the unpopular depopulation process. The new Policyholder Choice Form has and will continue to be sent out to many of our Citizens' policyholders. The form shows an estimated renewal premium from takeout carrier(s) which in many cases may be higher than your current premium. Please note you MUST return the form to Citizens within 30 days if you want to remain with Citizens, regardless of the premium. Read more in our agent, Brian Ford's, latest blog
