Your Insureds Stink at This, Remaining July Webinars

Florida Insurance Contract

 









“Most contracts are a joke. Everyone knows they’re chock full of baloney and easy to invalidate.”

-A guy who’s wrong about most things including this

 

Greetings!

In this newsletter a few weeks ago, I discussed an upcoming change to the CE rule. Word about this change is starting to get around and the questions have been rolling in. If you missed that edition and are eager to know just what the heck is going on, click the “Blog” tab at the top of our homepage for an archive of past editions. 

This week, I ask you, faithful and appreciated reader, to answer a question: How would you describe your insured’s ability to read and understand the terms of a written contract?

A) okay

B) stink

C) read the word “contract”, threw up in mouth a little    

Thank goodness for Terry. Specifically, Terry “Everyone’s Insurance Dad” Tadlock. A nationally recognized educator and consultant, Terry is the guy the experts run to when stumped. The FISCE is fortunate to have him share his expertise Tuesday afternoon with a performance of his essential Contracts Agents Should Read Webinar. Regardless of the type of insurance you deal with, you’ll leave this Webinar with an improved understanding of complicated insurance requirements in various contracts.

Gallons of great stuff on tap this week – our final Webinars before August. I could go on but your attention span is dissolving faster than my apartment lease after throwing that July 4th indoor fireworks party so I’ll get to it. Here are this week’s highlights:
 

  • Your stuff’s broke and so are you. Join “Rhode Island Robin” Federici Tuesday morning for piles of useful tips on understanding coverage differences in commercial direct damage and time element policies.
  • “Oh #^*! what have you done?!” Insureds sign contracts agreeing to potentially costly insurance obligations they don’t understand. Terry “Everyone’s Insurance Dad” Tadlock has seen this play out thousands of times and can help. Join him Tuesday afternoon for guidance agents need to assist insureds who’ve no clue what they’re getting into.
  • Give her five! Life & Health licensees – if you’re in need of your 5-hour Law & Ethics Update, join Karin “I’ll Ask an Alaskan” Woofter Wednesday morning and she’ll help you knock it out.
  • This Webinar is illegal in some states. “Street legal” or not, your insureds are customizing vehicles in interesting, insane, and expensive ways. Join Corey “Bon Jovi of Insurance” Wilkins Wednesday afternoon for an hour on how to value/insure wild rides.
  • “Life’s so different now…I’ll call my agent to discuss!” (said absolutely no one.) Nicole “WTH’s Decaf?” Broch is back Thursday morning for another performance of her outstanding Webinar on hyper-evolved personal lines exposures common in today’s pandemic America.  
  • It’s (not) all the same and (not) only the names that change. Life insurance is more complex than most people think. Corey returns Thursday afternoon to talk tips and tricks regarding a variety of life insurance products.
     

For more info about what we’re up to, see the list below and/or review the full Webinar Schedule on the website.

Finally, if you’re an unapologetic lover of our fine state be sure to fly (HINT HINT) to the bottom of this newsletter for a little something special.

That’s all for now. Until the next round…cheers!

FASCINATING FACTOID FOR FANATICAL FLORIDIANS –

 

If you gaze upon the Big Cypress National Preserve in the Everglades, please enjoy its natural beauty…because much of what you see almost became a HUGE a*s airport.

 

The Everglades Jetport was slated to become the world’s largest airport. According to CNN Travel, it was to be a “glamorous intercontinental hub for supersonic airliners with six runways and high-speed rail links to surrounding cities.” Construction began in the late 1960s and was abandoned after completing just one runway. Known today as the Dade-Collier Training and Transition Airport (which somehow managed to nab the super-awesome code “TNT”) the lone airstrip is closed to the public but still used for training purposes. There are a few reasons the project was abandoned, including Boeing’s decision to scrap plans for a supersonic airliner that would’ve used the jetport’s large runways. Primarily, the project was abandoned due to its massive environmental concerns.
