Cat Losses Wreaking Havoc: How Can Carriers Turn Chaos to Their Advantage?

Progressive’s recent financial woes, highlighted in a June 14th P&C Specialist report, paint a grim picture for the insurance industry. The company’s staggering 282.8% combined ratio in May, primarily due to severe storms, is a stark reminder of the devastation catastrophes can inflict. If a giant like Progressive is reeling, it begs the question: are other carriers equipped to manage the onslaught?

The Cat Loss Conundrum

When disaster strikes, insurers face a cascade of problems: a deluge of complex claims, frustrated customers, soaring on-site costs, and a tarnished reputation. It’s a recipe for losses that spiral out of control.

idFetch: A Beacon of Hope?

Enter idFetchTM by VeracityID. This innovative solution lets homeowners follow a highly structured, 10-to-15-minute, property documentation effort. Then, when a catastrophe strikes, the carrier simply resends the applet loaded with the ‘before’ pictures, asking the customer to take ‘after’ ones. This allows remote adjusters to perform claim triage from a much stronger basis in fact, radically streamlining the claims process and minimizing the conflict, lawsuits and other financial fallout of natural disasters.

Imagine a world where insurers have a clear picture of each policyholder’s property before disaster strikes. This would allow adjusters to swiftly manage claims remotely, easing the burden on overwhelmed teams and getting money back to policyholders faster.

A Win-Win for Insurers and Policyholders

idFetchTM empowers homeowners to take charge of their preparedness. By offering rewards like premium discounts or expedited claims settlement, insurers can transform pre-disaster documentation into a mutually beneficial practice.

Targeted educational campaigns can further boost participation, highlighting the tangible benefits of using idFetch for faster claims processing and a smoother recovery. This is true at the beginning of the storm season and can be even more effective at motivating compliance when the season’s first major storm watches are issued.
