IMPORTANT PROPERTY & CASUALTY INSURANCE REMINDER
 
Please notify us promptly when selling or otherwise removing buildings or locations and when adding buildings or locations. Late reporting can not only complicate claim handling on unreported additions, but also our ability to return unused premium to churches.  Once we have entered a new policy term, backdating a change to a prior policy term can be very difficult.
 
All changes should be reported promptly to Rebecca Triplett at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 1-800-627-3732.
