Effective August 1, 2016 Erie Mutual Insurance will begin offering Comprehensive Water Protection to eligible policyholders who already have sewer backup coverage in place and who live in a low risk area.
This new coverage will allow for one simple combined policy endorsement which provides an Overland Water and Sewer Backup solution. In addition to flood and sewer backup, policyholders coverage will also include ground water, surface water, and sewer and water line failure. Flooding can occur anywhere, with little or no warning. Policyholders who qualify are now reassured that their policy coverage will insure them and protect against this additional water damage.

Your home is likely the most valued asset you own, and because of that, we believe that every policyholder should insist that their insurance company inspect what they insure. It has taken some insurers and homeowners years to realize the value of home insurance inspections.
Every insurance company has been witness to the loss of a family home, it is an absolutely horrific ordeal of devastation and emotion that the family is forced to endure. Although your first instinct may be to extinguish the fire, it is important that everyone knows what do when a fire becomes uncontrollable. Your family members have only a matter of minutes to safely escape the fire and smoke before it consumes the house. You must have a plan in place!
Ask anyone that works in insurance, the story has been the same for years. They never really planned to work in insurance, it somehow just happened. That may be changing. Our younger generations, yes that includes millennials, are selecting insurance as a career choice and choosing a post-secondary school and program that makes the best sense to achieve this goal.
