What is an Insurance Broker?
In a nutshell, an insurance broker is an individual who acts on behalf of the person they represent – in this case, you – to facilitate the best insurance policy. Brokers will work side by side with you to understand what you are looking for and what is needed for an individual’s specific circumstances.
They have your best interests at heart and are on your team. As such, having a transparent relationship with the broker is essential. The world of insurance is overflowing with rules and regulations with many different factors that impact insurance rates and coverages. Some of them you may never have even considered. An insurance broker is there to guide people through the insurance maze.
With that in mind, do your best to keep all lines of communication open regarding the information connected to the policy.
When to Contact Your Alberta Insurance Broker
Being open and honest about life circumstances will help an insurance broker understand how to better assist. Inform them about:
- A change in marital status
- A move to a new location
- Changes to phone numbers or email addresses
Essentially, you want to inform your insurance broker of any changes to your personal information. Also, contact your broker….
When You Need a Quote – Shopping around, looking at different price points, and making comparisons, then you will want to contact your broker for a quote to see which services best suit you and your budget. Alpine represents several different insurance companies and may be able to suggest options for their client’s insurance needs.
When You Need a Policy Review – Want to review your current policy? Have questions about coverage? Are you uncertain if you are protected? If so, then be sure to contact the broker for a policy review so you can get a better understanding of what the existing policy entails.
When Filing a Claim – Before you call your insurance company to report a claim, reach out to your insurance broker. They can give the best advice with respect to how making a claim will impact the premium, future coverage, and deductibles. They can’t settle the claim, but they can provide valuable guidance as to how a claim today can affect your insurance tomorrow.
When Making Policy Changes and Updates – If something has changed in your life that requires the modification of the current policy, then contact your insurance broker now to make those necessary policy changes. Don’t wait until the last minute to reach out; being prepared means stress-free transactions.
If You Have Billing Questions – Questions are important. They help you learn and better understand when things are confusing. One of the areas that most people have plenty of questions about is regarding billing. For any billing questions, a broker can find answers.
