Underwriting Seminar Agenda


Application in the Hot Seat (FRAUD) 

Committing a deliberately deceptive act on an insurance application is illegal.  Filing a false insurance claim or inflating an insurance claim is also illegal.  One of our favorite attorneys will enlighten us on fraud areas in our industry, as well as what to do once it's discovered. 

Before Its Too Late (Discoverability of Files) 

Knowing what can be brought forward in the event of insurance fraud is critical.  It all starts with notes and documentation in the underwriting file. The goal of the underwriter is to foresee a potential claim before it happens. This course will identify valuable knowledge that will assure your company's due diligence. 

Give and Take   (Working with our Agents) 

The working relationship between the underwriter and the agent is crucial. Strong communication skills are what makes this relationship effective. This session will discuss what agents are seeking in the company’s underwriting policy. We will discuss options of property rehabilitation to present to customers in an effort to secure the properties. 

Show and Tell (Pictionary Style Roundtables) 

 This Roundtable will be exciting and interactive.  During the roundtables, a moderator will present photos of properties for underwriting discussion. After reviewing suggestions and findings, the moderator will encourage discussion throughout the room to obtain even more insight from others. Unique risks sometimes are challenging for an underwriter. We will help you overcome these obstacles.
