Winter Driving Safety Tips
Posted on Thursday, December 9, 2021 at 4:01 PM
Insurance Erie PA

Winter Weather is coming and Snow, slush or icy roads are involved in nearly one in four weather-related vehicle crashes.  Here are a few simple steps to help prevent you from becoming one of the statistics.

  • Preparing Your Vehicle:
    • Make sure your car is stocked with a winter driving survival kit, including an ice scraper, a snow shovel and sand or road salt.
    • Check your tires and determine if they will provide safe traction.
    • Keep your fuel tank above half full.
  • Watching the Weather:
    • Monitor road and weather conditions by checking local news stations or Internet traffic and weather sites.
  • Driving in Winter Conditions:
    • Before you leave, take time to clear snow and ice off your car, including your windows, mirrors, lights, reflectors, hood, roof and trunk.
    • Drive with headlights on
    • Remember that speed limits are meant for dry roads, not roads covered in snow and ice. Reduce your speed.
  • Breaking Down or Getting Stuck:
    • If you are unexpectedly caught in a snowstorm and are stranded or get stuck in snow, if your car is safely out of harm’s way, stay in your car and wait for help.
    • You can run the car heater to stay warm for 10 minutes every hour, but first, make sure your exhaust pipe is clear of snow.

The HMM Team wishes all a safe and happy winter season!

2022 Medicare Part B Premiums Released
Posted on Tuesday, November 16, 2021 at 11:36 AM
Medicare Supplement Erie PA

Last Friday, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) revealed Medicare Parts A and B premiums for 2022.  Standard Medicare Part B monthly premiums will increase to $170.10 for 2022, up from $148.50 in 2021. 

CMS points out the increase is due to statutory requirements to prepare for expenses, prior Congressional action in the Continuing Appropriations Act, and the need to maintain a contingency reserve for unanticipated increases in healthcare spending. 

CMS also notes that most people with Medicare will see a 5.9 percent cost-of-living adjustment in their 2022 Social Security benefits, which should more than cover the increase in their Medicare Part B monthly premium.

Additionally, the annual deductible for Medicare Part B beneficiaries increases from $203 in 2021 to $233 in 2022.

Fall Is Coming!
Posted on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 at 4:03 PM
Insurance Erie PA

As we turn the page into the fall season, there are a few things you as agents can encourage your customers to do to protect their homes from damage. Here are some of the top items:

  1. Have your HVAC serviced before the start of heating season. We typically see a wave of losses associated with the first cold snap of the season, ranging from smoke and soot, to fires, to freezing losses when HVAC units fail to operate properly.
  2. Get your chimney cleaned and inspected. It is vital that homeowners with wood burning fireplaces or solid-fuel stoves have their chimneys cleaned and inspected for damage annually. These items are the source of a large number of fires which are ultimately preventable by the homeowner if proper maintenance and care is exercised. It is recommended that a chimney be cleaned annually, or if there is a substantial amount of use, even more frequently.
  3. Check your protective devices. Replace smoke detector batteries and test units, and check fire extinguishers. We strongly recommend that all of our customers keep a kitchen-rated fire extinguisher (readily available at your local hardware store for about $25) within easy reach of their kitchen stove. The most frequent cause of fire loss in the residences we insure are cooking related.

While this is far from an exhaustive list of things property owners can do to prepare their homes for winter, it's certainly a good start! Taking these key actions will significantly reduce a property owner's risk of severe loss as we transition into the cold-weather season.

It is that time of year again. Time to start winterizing your toys!
Posted on Tuesday, September 28, 2021 at 2:36 PM
Boat Insurance Erie PA

It happens every year. The season comes to an end, and we have to put our boat away for the winter. Before you say your final farewell, however, take a little time for some maintenance. Handling these five winterization steps now, says Derek Wolfe, Watercraft Claims Specialist at American Modern, will make saying hello to your boat next spring even more joyful.

 

  1. Before winter storage, clean out all the damp and wet materials including any fabrics that can hold moisture. This will help prevent musty smells in the boat after the long winter.
  2. Be sure to clean and protect the canvas that protects your boat all season long. The reason for most canvas leaks is due to dirt being trapped between the canvas threads. The dirt will act like a funnel and allow water to pass straight through. Don’t forget to reapply a protectant to the canvas to preserve it from the elements.
  3. One of the most highly neglected boating accessories is not even on the boat—it’s the trailer your boat sits on. You trust the trailer to get your boat to and from the lake, but it’s rarely maintained until something breaks. Maintenance tasks such as brake service, paint protection, tire checks, lubing, and greasing the brakes and bearings will keep your trips on schedule.
  4. Remember to pull your boat’s hull drain plug when it’s stored out of the water. If your shrink-wrap or covers fail during the off-season, rainwater buildup could fill the bilge and submerge the motor and systems for a long period of time. That’ll ruin next season in a hurry!
  5. Be sure to have your boat, motor, and all systems professionally winterized. Most important, remember to have marine antifreeze installed. Marine antifreeze not only protects the systems from freezing temperatures, but it has corrosion inhibitors that help control the decay of metals inside the cooling systems. Relying on a knowledgeable marine service professional can put your mind at ease, because typically damage from freezing is not covered by most insurance policies.
