· Agents now sign the T&C’s within the submission process.
Workers Comp Quote document
· Next released two additional pages for WC in the quote document to help with coverage transparency for Agents and Customers: multiclass premium breakdown and total premium calculation breakdown.
Adding Waiver of Sub in the Agent Portal
· The change is available to standalone GL and standalone WC policies.
· This will trigger rate change. Once the customer purchases, COI’s with Waiver of Sub can be issued free of charge from that point on.
Workers Comp Classes can be added by NCCI Number

11.10.2020 – Next Insurance has lifted the moratorium placed on 10/28 due to Hurricane Zeta. This moratorium affected their property products (including Inland Marine and Commercial Auto due to Physical Damage coverage) in AL, GA, LA, and MS. However, due to Hurricane Eta, Florida will continue under a moratorium binding all Next property products in Florida.

10.28.20 – Next Insurance Moratorium: Due to Hurricane Zeta approaching, we need to implement a moratorium on binding all Property products (including Inland Marine and Commercial Auto due to Physical Damage coverage).

This will affect Inland Marine and Commercial Auto in AL, FL, GA, LA, and MS. The moratorium will go into effect today (10/28) and will be in place until the storm associated increase in risk has passed.

Hurricane Laura caused many carriers to issue moratoriums in TX, LA and up the East coast the last week of August. All were lifted within a couple days and open for quoting & binding again.
