I.I.I. Glossary

PERIL- A specific risk or cause of loss covered by an insurance policy, such as a fire, windstorm, flood, or theft. A named-peril policy covers the policyholder only for the risks named in the policy in contrast to an all-risk policy, which covers all causes of loss except those specifically excluded.

FRAUD- Intentional lying or concealment by policyholders to obtain payment of an insurance claim that would otherwise not be paid, or lying or misrepresentation by the insurance company managers, employees, agents and brokers for financial gain.

"We can't rebuild all the infrastructure. We can't fix every roof or give everyone back their electricity. But we can give the kids a place to play." - Marlene Ibsen, CEO and president, The Travelers Foundation. Like many of us, the people at #Travelers saw the devastation left by Hurricane Maria and looked further afield for ways to rebuild not just homes and businesses, but also to restore communities and bridge cultures. Watch how a team of 35 mostly Connecticut-based Travelers employees traveled to the town of Yabucoa to help restore a cherished local baseball diamond as the focal point in the lives of hundreds of kids. https://cour.at/2teJqEE #HartfordCourant #PuertoRicoStrong
