The CII’s New Generation Claims Group has produced a leaflet to help individuals whose homes and businesses have been battered by storms access cash to restore their property.
To improve the flood resilience of homes and businesses, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) launched the Property Level Flood Resilience Recovery Support Scheme in England, which has been activated several times since its inception, after major flooding events.
The leaflet produced by the CII’s 2019/2020 New Generation Claims Group explains the scheme’s eligibility criteria and how to apply for a grant, which will contribute towards the cost of a survey and subsequent improvements to the property designed to prevent water from entering a building or at least reduce the impact of damage when it does.
Each year, the CII seeks rising stars to join the professional body’s flagship talent programme, the New Generation Group.
The 2019/2020 class was made up of 40 promising professionals split into four groups – claims, underwriting, broking and the London market.
Each group worked together on a project they believed could make a difference to the insurance profession and presented it to the CII’s board.
