COVID-19 updates

Released on: May 7, 2020, 17:00 PM
Even in the middle of a pandemic, one thing remains true: We love our independent agents!

We value your partnership today, tomorrow and beyond.

If you follow us on Facebook or LinkedIn, you may have seen our “We love independent agents” video or our video message on “Uniting together.” UFG employees from across the company came together to showcase our appreciation—and dedication—to our agents in the video.

In case you missed it, we sent an email last week to update you on premium refund checks, discuss InsurPay payment options for claimants, touch on no-touch claims (pun intended) and remind you about Photolink, a simple mobile app for policyholders. We have more to share with you today. 

Profit sharing advance payment

We are providing an opt-in, one-time payment advance on your 2020 profit sharing. The amount of the advance, if you choose to participate, will be 20% of your 2019 profit sharing amount. This accelerated payment will be made by the end of May 2020. We notified agency designees of this last week. For more information, read here.

P&C Connections

In our latest edition of P&C Connections, we highlight our simple claims solutions, the Go Beyond award and competitive new products including our cyber coverage and manufacturing E&O. Download the newsletter today.

Update to personal lines business

We announced earlier this week that we have entered into a renewal rights agreement for our personal lines business. You can read more about the agreement in this UFG News article. Although a difficult decision, it was made in the best interest of our agents and policyholders. President and CEO Randy Ramlo shared this video message with personal lines agents this week.

Go Beyond agent award

Is someone in your agency going above and beyond during the pandemic? They might be a good nominee for our Go Beyond agent award, given in honor of our former president and CEO Scotty McIntyre Jr. Read more about the award and submit your agency nominee today! Nominations are accepted until June 30, 2020.

Thank you for your continued partnership
