In this episode, we dive into what nonrenewal means for an insurance policy and how it differs from cancellation. Here are the key points we cover:
  • Understanding Nonrenewal vs. Cancellation:
    • Nonrenewal occurs when an insurance policy term ends, and the insurer decides not to renew it.
    • Cancellation can happen mid-term for specific reasons, such as non-payment or breach of contract, but is less common.
  • Typical Policy Terms:
    • Example: A homeowner's policy might run from May 2023 to May 2024.
    • Policies are usually renewed annually unless there are significant changes or risks.
  • Reasons for Nonrenewal:
    • High number of claims during the term.
    • Increased risk or changes in the insured’s situation.
    • Strategic decisions by the insurer, such as exiting a geographic market or industry.
  • Notification Requirements:
    • Most states require advance notice of nonrenewal (usually one to two months).
    • It’s important to track your policy end dates and initiate contact with your insurer well in advance.
  • Proactive Steps:
    • Mark your calendar to review your insurance policies 90 days before they expire.
    • Contact your agent for updated quotes and potential changes in terms.
    • Start shopping for new insurance early if nonrenewal is a possibility.
  • Documentation Needs:
    • New insurers might require additional documents such as loss runs, executive resumes (CVs), and financial statements.
    • Early preparation can ensure a smooth transition to a new policy without gaps in coverage.
