How to optimize your clients’ coverage.

If your clients’ coverage doesn’t fully protect them against all the risks they face, Chubb can help.

Your clients may have gotten their insurance through a standard carrier. You may have engaged them using some of the language insights we shared with you, and educated them on the premium level of service they could expect as your clients. And while price may be a factor in their decision, optimizing their insurance coverage to fully protect them against the risks they face should also be a main concern.

Here are some examples of how Chubb can help you optimize your clients’ protection...

Ellen & Alex

Historic home and horses

  • Mid 50’s
  • 2 Children
  • Homes in IL and UT
Both in their mid-50s, Ellen and Alex have two children, live in a historic home in Illinois, and own a ranch house in Utah, with a stable, horses, and a full-time caretaker. After a Chubb review, they realized they didn't have coverage for some of the risks they faced and could be taking advantage of discounts and higher deductibles to reduce their premium. They made changes to their policy, and are now fully protected.

Insurance premiums

  • Currently they pay$28,482
  • They could save$4,732
As a Chubb client, they could get the comprehensive protection they need, and save 17% in premiums.

How Chubb can help your clients optimize their coverage.

Successful clients may not need low deductibles, so offering them higher deductibles, as well as credits for preventive technology, may help with the cost discussion. Add coverages that they didn't have access to in the past, and you can easily optimize their coverage to better protect their needs and assets.

Installing water leak detection systems in both homes and a temperature monitoring system in the ranch home means they don’t have to worry about water damage or freezing pipes while they’re away.

3 months

Typical time families spend out of their homes while repairs are made after suffering a severe water loss.

Clients’ homes are 7 times more likely* to sustain damage from a plumbing leak than by a fire and 6 times more likely* to sustain a loss from a plumbing leak than being burglarized.

By increasing or adding coverage, as well as increasing deductibles and taking advantage of premium credits, you can optimize your clients’ protection and lower their premiums.
