Insurance Gap Webinar

Would your homeowner’s insurance cover you for a loss in your home?

Hosted by Merlin Law Group & AAPIA

On Friday, October 11 at 12:30 p.m. EST, Chip Merlin, president and founder of Merlin Law Group and Holly Soffer, general counsel to the American Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (AAPIA), will co-host a free live Webinar on the subject of coverage gaps and what can be done to stop this problem. Rutgers insurance law professor Jay Feinman, author of "Delay, Deny, Defend – Why Insurance Companies Don’t Pay Claims And What You Can Do About It" will have a guest video appearance on the topic.

Insurance coverage gaps are a recurring problem for public adjusters. With coverage gaps between policies, public adjusters are at risk for being left with little to possibly nothing to adjust for underinsured policyholders. Join us for this educational webinar to learn more about this issue and how you can help address this significant trend in the property insurance market.
