Attached is a Call for Action on the 2018 Dwelling Insurance Rate Filing.
Dwelling policyholders in Southern Shores are facing an increase of up to 39% on their wind coverage if this filing is not denied or negotiated to a lower rate by NC DOI Commissioner Mike Causey.
The deadline for comments is this Friday, March 23rd and time is of the essence. A public comment session will be held in Raleigh also on Friday at the Albemarle Building from 10 am to 4 pm.
The Call for Action includes a chart for comparison of rates statewide as well as talking points to assist with submitting comments.
The number of comments submitted up to this point is extremely low. Any assistance you could offer to help spread the word and encourage people to comment to 2018DwellingandFire@ncdoi.gov in this 11th hour would be greatly appreciated!
