National Preparedness Month
September is National Preparedness Month
National Preparedness Month (NPM), recognized each September, provides an opportunity to remind us that we all must prepare ourselves and our families now and throughout the year. This NPM will focus on planning, with an overarching theme: Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How.
Take time to learn lifesaving skills − such as CPR and first aid, check your insurance policies and coverage for the hazards you may face, such as flood, earthquakes, and tornadoes. Make sure to consider the costs associated with disasters and save for an emergency. Also, know how to take practical safety steps like shutting off water and gas.
The devastating hurricanes and wildfires of 2017 reminded the nation of the importance of preparing for disasters. Often, we will be the first ones in our communities to take action after a disaster strikes and before first responders arrive, so it is important to prepare in advance to help yourself and your community.
We offer a number of resources which help homeowners & business owners be prepared when a disaster happens.For more information please call us at 781-341-7007

Insurance Reconstruction - What is Recoverable Depreciation?
Insurance policies can be confusing.
This is an amount of money withheld by the carrier to ensure your repairs are made and ensure it costs the insured the full amount to repair the property.
Here is an example:
- Actual estimated amount of the claim: $10,000
- Customer Deductible: -$1,000
- Recoverable Depreciation Withheld: -$2,000
- Actual Cash Value payment made to insured: $7,000
In this example for a $10,000 claim, the insured would receive a check for $7,000 to repair the property.
Once the work is completed and the total cost of the repair has been incurred, the insured can file with their insurance carrier for the recoverable depreciation. In this example the recoverable depreciation payment would be $2,000 to the insured once the work was complete.
