Texas Windstorm Insurance Association

TWIA

The Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA) was established by the Texas Legislature in 1971  in response to regional market conditions following Hurricane Celia in August 1970. Our purpose is to provide windstorm and hail insurance in the Texas seacoast. TWIA is governed by Chapter 2210 of the Insurance Code (Chapter 2210).

We are a residual insurer of last resort and are not a direct competitor in the voluntary insurance market. We provide coverage to residential and commercial properties in certain designated portions of the Texas seacoast territory. The designated catastrophe area is that portion of the seacoast territory where the Commissioner of Insurance has found that windstorm and hail insurance is not reasonably available.

Cat Adjusting as a Profession (Is It For Me?)

Title: Cat Adjusting as a Profession (Is It For Me?)
First Posted: Friday, November 26, 2004
Author: Gary White

My son is now ready to go to college away from home and excluding approximately 21 months in an attempt to try something different in my life as a "financial planner", I have been adjusting, supervising or investigating claims for almost 27 years. By the way, I have worked my share of hail, wind, tornado and hurricane cats for other carriers so I know from whence I speak. Even during the time while I was trying to become a "financial planner", I supplemented my income with adjusting temp jobs and contract adjusting work.

'Storm insurance claims ‘at 10-year high’

Weather-related property insurance claims in the UK hit a 10-year high during the fourth quarter of 2013 because of this winter’s extreme storms and floods, according to accountancy firm Deloitte.

28 FEBRUARY 2014 | BY JUDITH UGWUMADU

Analysing the figures, drawn from Association of British Insurers data, Deloitte said that, as of December 31 2013, insurers dealt with nearly 200,000 weather-damage insurance claims to properties.

Deloitte’s insurance partner James Rakow said:  ‘Widespread storms and floods in the final three months of 2013 generated 198,000 insurance claims, which is the highest number of weather-related fourth-quarter claims in the past 10 years.’

Property damage accounted 172,000 insurance claims, domestic pipe leaks for 5,000 and commercial weather-related claims stood at 22,000.
