Need to Know
Insurance is a fast-paced industry and turnaround time is key.
Did you know that you can access the West Virginia Secretary of State’s website to aid in verifying a client’s information? Go to https://sos.wv.gov/Pages/default.aspx then in the center of the page go to Business Organization Search and enter the client’s Business Name or Agent/Officer/Name and Search. Once you find the client on the site you can then verify with the client the information they’ve given you matches the WV Secretary of State’s information for the client’s Business Name and Officers. This site doesn’t give you all the information needed but it does help. The client’s name should also match the name they use to file taxes for their business.
Items requested on the application such as FEIN, a list of all officers of a corporation, all members of an LLC, SSNs for all officers & members, number of employees, payroll and contact information for the client are all required information just to name a few. Having the application fully completed before submitting it to Bloss & Dillard, Inc will help eliminate a delay due to pending additional information.
On another note, some Workers Comp classes of business recently written have been Food Trucks, Forestry Management/Timber Brokerage, Local Trucking, Bail Bonding Agency, Retail Stores, and Site Prep Excavation. Let us help you place coverage for your next Work Comp client!
