As you can see, we had an exceptional financial year in 2021, adding over $4.6M to Policyholder Surplus. With the exception of a major windstorm that occurred late in the year (December 15), the weather was relatively mild earlier in the year. This along with a strong equity investment market contributed to the results.
AM Best Rating
Due to our strong financial results over the past few years, effective December 1, 2021 AM Best changed our Financial Strength rating to an A- (Excellent) from a B++ (Good). This is the first time in the Company's history that an A- rating has been received.
We are pleased to announce that with the March 2022 renewals, we have now converted all policies to our new BriteCore processing system. Therefore, we have removed the links to the old system from the Agents section of our website.
Thank you to all for your patience during this process!
We started the conversion process in October of 2016 and have been gradually converting lines of business ever since. Although it has taken a while to get the conversion done, we are proud that we have accomplished it!
When we make a broadcast announcement to our agency force via email, letter, or otherwise, a copy of the announcement will be placed on this page so you can refer back to it later.
