Proven Program Options
More than 400 property/casualty insurers throughout the United States use AAIS personal lines insurance programs, which provide policy forms, manual rules, and loss cost rating information for insuring residential property, personal liability, and privately owned watercraft.
Insurers rely on these programs to maintain the coverages, exclusions, limitations, endorsement options, state amendatory endorsements, and other features carriers need in a highly competitive, highly litigious personal lines market.
Beyond that, AAIS has been forward-thinking and innovative over the years in addressing exposures arising from water, business activities, motorized vehicles, equipment breakdown, and changes in family structure, among others.
Among our most important innovations in personal lines has been the development of a Homeowners By-Peril Rating Plan, filed in most states and available ready-made for rating homeowners policies by peril.
AAIS personal lines programs are backed up by the expertise and personal service provided by our actuarial, product development, compliance, and support staff. Working on behalf of our members, these specialists deliver up-to-date products at a fraction of the cost and effort needed to do it yourself or use other providers.
Whether you are competing in standard markets or targeted ones--coastal, urban, high-value, others--AAIS personal lines programs are the options you can't afford to overlook.
Insurance companies seeking more information on AAIS products and services can contact Rick Maka, director of marketing and strategic alliances, by our contact form or by calling 800-564-AAIS, ext. 3222.
