Ross Insurance has put together a list of tips that may help educate residents on how to avoid an electrical fire and protect their homes from danger. Safe use of electrical cords All frayed or pierced electrical cords have the potential to cause a fire. Suspect-looking electrical cords should be promptly replaced with a new one. Attempting to repair the cords with electrical tape is not a viable solution. If possible, residents should avoid using extension cords to power any of the household appliances. Also, no extension cords should be placed under carpets or along doorways. Do not overload circuits Electrical circuits are only designed to handle a certain amount of power. Never plug more than one high-wattage device into an outlet at a time. This is especially important for homeowners who may be using holiday lights indoors and out.
“Each year that passes, the cost of care goes up, making new policies more expensive.” Chapin, SC (PRWEB) October 22, 2013 If you are a female resident in the state of South Carolina that could benefit from or is considering owning a long-term care policy, applying today is a wise choice. On Friday, November 8th at midnight, Genworth Financial, the largest holder of long-term care policies in the U.S., will institute a gender-based pricing system, which means women will no longer be offered the same low cost on premiums that men can and will receive. In fact, premiums for women will be about 60% higher if you apply for a policy after November 8th. “The decision to offer gender-based pricing in South Carolina has been in the works for some time now,” states Harry Crosby, Managing Director of Certified Senior Solutions Specialist and author of “Long Term Care…The Complete Guide.” “Actually, the premiums for long-term care insurance in most states, including North Carolina, have already been adjusted to charge women higher prices.” Up until now, insurers have offered premiums based on a unisex-pricing system. According to research conducted by the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance, data shows that “about two thirds of benefits paid are paid for claims made by women, and that in 2012, the long-term care insurance industry paid out a projected $7 billion in benefits.” Because women have a far greater chance of using their coverage, and as the amount of claims made per year rapidly increases, the Department of Insurance considered the need to approve a sex-distinct pricing system logical and the rate increase would ensure that adequate funds are available to pay for future claims. Crosby, who is considered to be an industry expert and has more than a thousand clients across the state of South Carolina including friends and family members, is urging for women of all ages, race and marital status, to lock in on the unisex rates sooner than later. “It does not pay to wait to buy LTC insurance,” claims the twenty-year veteran. “Each year that passes, the cost of care goes up, making new policies more expensive. The premiums just get higher the older you get.” Other changes that will also take effect in the 4th quarter of 2013 are that the new policies will reduce the maximum issue age from 79 to 75, friends and family members will no longer be allowed to be used as home health aides in the new Genworth policy.
