AGENCY MANAGEMENT
State Laws Affecting Insurance
State laws can alter HOW policy wording, even consistent policy wording, is applied to a loss. Similar losses covered applying similar (or exact) policy language can be adjusted differently from one state to the next. The moral is, agents must understand how state laws affect coverage.

PERSONAL LINES 
Who is a "Resident" under a Personal Lines Policy?
Almost every personal lines policy uses the term "resident" somewhere in the form. A "resident" relative usually has coverage that is broader than any other class of insured except for the named insured(s). However, few (if any) policies define the term "resident." In this article, we'll take a look at how the courts have evaluated residency.
