Big “I” Markets recently announced a moratorium until Jan. 1, 2013, on new business submissions for personal lines non-standard property products on Big “I” Markets, effective Monday, Nov. 5. This program has experienced a 28% growth in policies in force in the past 12 months on BIM! Because this is an agency-billed program, it requires multiple touches by BIM and underwriting staff with a high transaction count. Unfortunately, the rapidly increasing volume has outpaced the ability to handle the agency billing and underwriting, and this time is needed to restructure internal resources.
Please note this suspension does not impact current policies in force or upcoming renewals, and if you have an outstanding quote request, it will be honored. Big “I” Markets apologizes for the delay in availability of this popular product and assures you it is working diligently to bring it back online by January 1, 2013.
In the interim, Big “I” Markets regrets that no exceptions to this suspension may be made.
Should you have any questions or issues arise regarding existing business, please use Big “I” Markets to communicate with your underwriter. Or, you may contact the Big “I” Markets customer service team directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or (800) 221-7917.
Thank you for your patience and for your continued support of Big “I” Markets!
