Application Process

 

The application process can vary depending on the type of insurance being purchased. However, in all cases the questions on the application must be answered correctly. If incorrect information is given on an application, whether intentional or not, the policy may be rescinded and a claim denied at a later date. If the agent completes the application, make sure you review all the questions and answers before you sign. Also, keep in mind the quote you receive from the agent is an estimate and may be changed by the insurance company, depending on current rating factors and underwriting guidelines.
