Texas Windstorm Insurance Association


Author: Roy
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.

Citizens Property Insurance

Author: CADO Admin

"Citizens Property Insurance Corporation was created by the Florida Legislature in August 2002 as a not-for-profit, tax-exempt, government entity. Its mission is to provide insurance protection to Florida policyholders who are entitled to but are unable to find property insurance coverage in the private market.

Citizens customers include Florida home, business and condominium owners, as well as Florida property owners who come to Citizens seeking coverage. Citizens is funded by policyholder premiums and, additionally, if its surplus is depleted in the wake of a particularly devastating storm or series of storms, Florida law requires Citizens to levy assessments on most Florida property-casualty insurance policyholders until any deficit is eliminated. These financial responsibilities drive Citizens' commitment to quality customer service and rigorously sound financial management."

What is your least favorite type of property claim to work?

I can't stand working theft claims but i don't get too many of them.  I guess a close 2nd would be lightning claims.  Give me a good hail or wind claim so I can inspect it and close it.
