September 21, 2004

Following weekend tours of storm-damaged areas in Pensacola, Florida’s Chief Financial Officer Tom Gallagher announced the opening of an insurance “super-center” at the Department of Financial Services’ mobile headquarters in Pensacola. Consumers visiting the location will have access to state consumer specialists and customer service representatives from most major insurance companies.

“Pensacola residents with property damage now have a ‘one-stop shop’ to file insurance claims and get answers to insurance questions and concerns,” Gallagher said.

The insurance “super-center” is located at the University Mall, 7171 North Davis Hwy., in Pensacola. Available on the mobile unit are satellite and cellular phones, computers and other information resources to allow staff to assist victims immediately, in their communities.

The unit will also help insurance agents and adjusters locate policyholders. Insurance companies co-locating as of Monday include: Citizens Property Insurance Corporation, Travelers, Allstate, State Farm, Met Life, USAA, Mercury Insurance, Universal Property and Casualty, Florida Select, Cypress Insurance and Tower Hill Insurance. More insurance companies are expected to join DFS within the next few days.
