Happy Memorial Day!!

Memorial Day

 

Memorial Day. A time for BBQ’s, Family, Friends and Fun… But there is so much more behind it than we REALLY celebrate. Memorial Day is a day for us to remember the fallen souls who died fighting for our country, the United States of America. So we are asking that in the midst of all your celebrations, you take a moment to think of and thank those that lost their lives fighting for our rights, fighting for our lives and fighting for us to have the freedom that we do today. I can’t think more of a selfless act, putting your life on the line for people you don’t know or may not even support you. We Salute You and We Thank You For Your Services…

Also Remember *ALWAYS HAVE A DESIGNATED DRIVER!* NO TEXTING AND DRIVING* ALWAYS WEAR A SEATBELT* MOST OF ALL, BE SAFE AND USE YOUR BEST JUDGEMENT!*

Have a wonderful holiday weekend from A&S Insurance, LLC Staff!!

Why Do I Need Flood Insurance?

Flooding occurs in moderate-to-low risk areas as well as in high-risk areas. Poor drainage systems, rapid accumulation of rainfall, snowmelt, and broken water mains can all result in flood. Properties on a hillside can be damaged by mudflow, a covered peril under the Standard Flood Insurance Policy. In high-risk areas, there is at least a 1 in 4 chance of flooding during a 30-year mortgage. For these reasons, flood insurance is required by law for buildings in high-risk flood areas as a condition of receiving a mortgage from a federally regulated or insured lender.

What Is Insurance?

Insurance is the equitable transfer of the risk of a loss, from one entity to another in exchange for payment. It is a form of risk management primarily used to hedge against the risk of a contingent, uncertain loss. An insurer, or insurance carrier, is selling the insurance; the insured, or policyholder, is the person or entity buying the insurance policy. The amount of money to be charged for a certain amount of insurance coverage is called the premium. Risk management, the practice of appraising and controlling risk, has evolved as a discrete field of study and practice.

The transaction involves the insured assuming a guaranteed and known relatively small loss in the form of payment to the insurer in exchange for the insurer’s promise to compensate (indemnify) the insured in the case of a financial (personal) loss. The insured receives a contract, called the insurance policy, which details the conditions and circumstances under which the insured will be financially compensated.
