Agency Profile Featured in IA Magazine

yurconic-newJohn Yurconic Agency was featured in Insight + Analysis for the Independent Agent. Titled “A Big Footprint,” the article in IA Magazine highlighted the firm’s position as the number one provider of medical malpractice insurance for podiatrists, endorsed by the Pennsylvania Podiatric Medical Association. The insurance agency profile starts with an overview of our recent growth and the addition of our new agency support specialist position.

A quote by Colleen Driscoll, COO highlights our value-added services like third-party management for the workers comp claims of some clients. A quote by President John T. Yurconic emphasizes the completion of three acquisition plans and the importance of trained and qualified producers. Finally, Marketing Coordinator Joanna Ballan describes how social media like Facebook has allowed for organic traffic and genuine interaction between customers and the insurance agency. Instead of relying on unsolicited surveys, social media opens channels of communication that allow for a better understanding of the needs and interests of customers.

John Yurconic Agency Launches NEW Web Platform

The John Yurconic Agency has a new website, which includes multiple interactive elements for their customers.

Insurance Manager Patricia D. Sauka, AAI said she believes the John Yurconic Agency is the first to offer such functionality, which is based on the needs identified for JYA customers.

“I think our clients expect a certain level of engagement and service from our agency,” she said.

Patricia and Joanna Ballan, the John Yurconic Agency’s Marketing Coordinator, have both seen much success and interactivity already. Ballan said during one afternoon, she received 9 or 10 inquiries, regarding how to obtain personal and business insurance coverage.

“It was really great to interact with customers,” she said.

Ballan credited Sauka with spearheading the effort for a new website. The John Yurconic Agency’s prior website was probably more than 5 years old and quite bland, she said.

In addition to the numerous interactive and functional elements, the new website looks much more modern and is better organized, Sauka said.

Customer Dave Cruts this week told JYA team members he thinks the new website is outstanding.

“I thought it was a huge improvement over the old one. I easily accessed their site via my iPhone with no problem at all. Furthermore, I found it extremely informative, in a fun and engaging way” he told the JYA team.

The team at the John Yurconic Agency worked closely with team members from CMorganelli Designs, a creative web agency, located in Hellertown PA.

Founder and CEO Chris Morganelli said “We were honored to have been chosen by the John Yurconic Agency to collaborate and team with.  Their staff  was a pleasure to work while we planned, designed, and developed such a robust and modern website. We look forward to a long working relationship with the John Yurconic Agency.”

Flood Insurance Dissected by John Walsh

Flood Insurance covers physical damage to your building or personal property “directly” caused by a flood. Directly means that the flood must be the cause of damage. As stated above flood coverage falls into two categories: building and personal property. Determining which section covers what can be difficult. For instance air conditioning window units are covered by personal property while central air conditioning equipment is covered under building.  Here are general guidelines for what is covered by each section.

Building Property coverage insures: building and foundation; electrical and plumbing systems; central air conditioners; refrigerators, stoves, and built-in appliances like dishwashers; permanently installed carpeting, paneling, wallboard, bookcases, and cabinets; window blinds; debris removal.

Personal Property coverage insures: clothing, furniture, and electronic equipment, curtains, portable and window air conditioners, portable microwaves and portable dishwashers, carpets, washers and dryers, food freezers and food in them, certain valuable items can be covered up to $2,500.

As you can see a general rule of thumb is permanently installed fixtures and appliances would be covered under building property while portable appliances would be covered under personal property.

Here’s a list of what is not covered by your Flood Insurance policy:

  • Damage caused by moisture, mildew, or mold that could have been avoided by property owner
  • Currency, precious metals, and valuable papers (stock certificates)
  • Property and belongings outside a building ( e.g. septic systems, patios, fences, pools, plants)
  • Living expenses for temporary housing
  • Financial loss caused by business interruption or loss of insured property
