Consumer Outreach & Education

As an educated and informed consumer, you can serve as your best advocate. This is why ICA Tasha Carter prioritizes consumer education on insurance matters. Being knowledgeable about insurance empowers you to make informed decisions. You understand the insurance products being offered to you and are able to make a decision on the product that best meets you and your family’s needs. You are aware of the insurance claims process and know what to expect. For many, filing a homeowners insurance claim, for example, is a once in a lifetime occurrence and you may be unfamiliar with the process. As your advocate, ICA Tasha Carter focuses on educating you on the process and outlining the expectations.

The more knowledgeable you are as an insurance consumer, the less likely you are to fall victim to insurance scams; you are more apt to prepare and protect your property with the proper coverage; and are savvier with navigating the claims process if needed.
