A Publication of WTVP

Many people are using the World Wide Web to search for information. They prefer to gather information on their own time and at their own pace without being fed information. With that in mind, I've compiled a list of Web sites that may be helpful in researching some of the current topics confronting our nation. These topics range from highway safety, floods, health insurance, and others. Take your time to browse through the sites listed below to educate yourself on insurance-related topics.

  • Insurance Information Institute. A non-profit group sponsored by the insurance industry to provide general information about insurance. This is an excellent resource for unbiased information. You can order publications at the Web site.
  • Highway Loss Data Institute. Information on car theft, collision, and injury is listed by car make, model, and year. It also contains extensive highway safety tips and information.
  • Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This has excellent information and sobering statistics on automobile safety.
  • National Flood Insurance Program Information. The site includes a wealth of information on how to insure homes against flooding. It's the official Web page for the Federal Emergency Management Agency. http://www.
  • The Life and Health Insurance Foundation for Education. The Life and Health Insurance Foundation for Education (LIFE) is a non-profit organization designed to address the public's growing need for information and education on life, health, and disability insurance. LIFE also seeks to remind people of the important role agents play in helping families, businesses, and individuals find the insurance products that best fit their needs.
  • Local Chapter of the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU). CIAHU is a professional association for insurance agents who specialize in the delivery of health insurance. Their focus is on improving the health care system in the State of Illinois.

I hope you find the Web sites helpful and they give you a better understanding of your insurance portfolio. As I always recommend, please contact your local insurance professional for more help. IBI
