2019 coverage

The new year gives us the opportunity for a fresh start. It’s the season for goal-setting and resolutions. It’s also a good time to ask yourself, “What could go wrong this year?” and “How would my insurance company respond if the worst scenario occurred?”

Reflect on the happenings of the past year and evaluate your insurance policies to guarantee you’re covered in the coming year. Consider your family, business, property, home, health, vehicle, etc. A lot can change over the course of a year, and sometimes those changes may impact your insurance coverage. Here are a few items to asses to ensure you’re covered in 2019:

  1. Health insurance: Did you recently enroll or change your health insurance? Make sure you have your new insurance cards and before you visit a doctor and verify that they are in your provider network.
  2. Life insurance coverage: Major life changes, such as a birth, divorce, remarriage or even a new mortgage or new job, are indicators that you might need to make changes to your life insurance policy.
  3. Homeowner’s insurance: Take account of your assets with a detailed home inventory. This is the best way to determine the appropriate level of coverage needed. It’s also a good idea to know your deductible amounts and check to see if you’re eligible for any discounts.
  4. Auto insurance: Driving underinsured is not a good way to enter the new year. Examine your deductibles for comprehensive and collision coverage. Talk with your agent to determine how raising or lowering this amount would affect your premium.
  5. Commercial coverage: Take inventory of your business. Be sure you have coverage for all locations and aspects of your business. If you’ve purchased new real estate or equipment, added new operations, expanded your online presence or made any other drastic business changes in the past year, be sure your insurance agent is aware.

‘Tis the season for festive parties, Christmas carols, holiday shopping and much more. As the holidays draw near, so does the end of another great year. Though it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the hustle and bustle of the holidays, we think it’s important to reflect on the year behind us, so we can make goals for the approaching New Year.

In 2018, our firm not only celebrated 44 years of business in Birmingham, but we also rebranded to The Prewitt Group, launched a new website, gave back to the community, received recognition for our partnerships and services, and grew our team while never losing sight of the service and dedication our clients have come to expect.

Since 1974, J.R. Prewitt & Associates built a name as one of the premier insurance providers in our area. This year, we updated our name and logo to accurately position us for the future. The new name, The Prewitt Group, ties our legacy of service excellence to our present-day offerings through partnerships with our vast network of top-rated insurance carriers. Our new logo depicts the qualities our firm has come to be associated with: protection and strength. Likewise, our tagline, “the power to mitigate risk,” concisely sums up what The Prewitt Group’s mission has been since our company was founded. Learn more about our new brand identity here.

The Prewitt Group is committed to giving back to our community. Throughout the year, our team serves breakfast to people in need at The Church of the Reconciler in downtown Birmingham. It is such a rewarding experience that they look forward to each month! In April, The Prewitt Group won “Best Gumbo” and “People’s Choice” at the Cajun Cook-Off benefiting Girls Inc. of Central Alabama. In November, The Prewitt Group proudly sponsored the Birmingham Home & Garden Inspiration Home Tour. Proceeds from ticket sales were donated to The Wellhouse and Magic City Woodworks. Lastly, we are also excited to sponsor Children’s of Alabama families for Christmas again this year. Seeing the impact our company can make on the community is a huge blessing to our entire team.

In addition to these philanthropic efforts, The Prewitt Group was recognized as a Top Agent by Auto-Owner’s Insurance. We value our partnership with Auto-Owners Insurance, which enables us to meet the insurance needs of both individuals and businesses and look forward to continuing our successful partnership.

Last, but certainly not least, The Prewitt Group welcomed Jack Prewitt and Tyler Hudson to the agency! Jack follows in the footsteps of his grandfather and founder of J.R. Prewitt, Jack, his father, Johnny, and his Uncle Andy. Tyler came on board as a Risk Consultant in the Life Insurance, Healthcare and Group Benefits division.

All in all, it was an outstanding year for The Prewitt Group, and we could not have had such a successful year without our dedicated employees, devoted partners, loyal clients and supportive family and friends! We can’t wait to see what 2019 holds for The Prewitt Group! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
