Following are a few of the services we can help with:
Unfortunately, we have found many churches simply call their local insurance agent and obtain coverage from them. As that insurance Agent does not specialize in Church Insurance these churches end up buying a low priced insurance policy that is missing many of the critical coverages they need to provide the needed protection. It is not until either we show them the issues (which is the best case scenario) or they go to file a claim and are denied coverage as a result of not having that coverage that these churches scramble to find an expert for help.
Integrity Now Insurance Brokers is one of the few Church insurance agents in California who specializes in churches and has access to multiple insurance carriers who specializes in providing insurance for churches. We are your church insurance expert!
The Church Insurance market has changed in California and we have enter into what is known as a harding church insurance market. While we are still relatively soft as compared to other states, the years of damage caused by wildfires has caused pricing to increase and deductibles to go higher for all churches.
Church Insurance Carriers are doing their best to help contain their insurance premium cost by raising deductibles to $2,500 for property losses. Only last year the overall average deductible in California was $1,000. Which is a significant increase from a deductible point of view, this change will help the carriers contain their cost and in turn help keep church insurance premium in California under control.
As your Church Insurance Agent in California we are constantly monitoring all of the Church Insurance Markets to see which insurance carrier is offering the best overall coverage at a reasonable price.
Like many different organization throughout California and our Country, churches have faced major challenges when it comes to Covid-19. My own church which is located in Long Beach, California closed down and like many others went to holding church over zoom. We then went from zoom meetings to meeting in the churches parking lot and of course keeping socially distant. Like you we are eager to get these mask off and getting back to normal operations.
On the front end of Covid-19, we received many phone calls from our church clients asking about defying the stay at home order. Unfortunately, we had to tell them that by willfully defying the State mandate they could create a potential coverage issue. While we could not stop our clients from defying the stay at home order, we had to give them the hard truth
Covid-19 has also played into the role of the hardening insurance market. Many insurance carriers have stopped writing any new business as a result of this pandemic. The great news is our insurance carriers we work with related to churches exposures have continued to accept new business. If your church is looking to save money on your churches insurance needs we encourage you to reach out and we can help you exam your insurance coverages
Many of our clients that we serve are brand new churches. One of the key factors that needs to be answered is the following.
Does your church meet in a home or a commercial space for your main church services?
If your main church services are located at a commercial space then yes we can help obtain the needed insurance for your church.
If your church is only meeting out of a home and not a commercial space then we are not able to provide the needed insurance. This is because most home churches do not have the needed guidelines in place to protect their church members.
It is important for all churches to have all of the needed written policies and procedures in place to protect all of their members. If you do not
If you are an established church and you are looking to save money on your churches insurance we have the church insurance carriers to help you.
