Safeco Consolidates Nonprofit Social Service Product Line with NIF Group

April 2, 2007

Seattle-based Safeco said its insurance product line for nonprofit social service agencies will now be available to all independent agents through NIF Group Inc.

“NIF Group has successfully represented Safeco’s nonprofit social service program in the eastern half of the United States since 1998,” said Tom Troy, senior vice president of Safeco Business Insurance. “Now, as our singular national partner, NIF Group is making it easier than ever for independent agents to sell Safeco’s program across the country.”

Based in Manhasset, NY, NIF Group has nine offices throughout the U.S., including its newest location in suburban Seattle. NIF Group has underwritten nonprofit social services continuously for more than 25 years. The company will underwrite and manage Safeco’s nonprofit social service program, which spans a spectrum of 501(c)(3) organizations, including:
* Drug- and alcohol-treatment centers;
* Mental health facilities;
* Homeless/family shelters;
* Child/family services; and
* Community service agencies.

“When Black/White & Associates, formerly our western U.S. representative, sold to another insurance company, we took advantage of the opportunity to consolidate our social service business with NIF Group,” Troy explained.

Because of Black/White’s upcoming consolidation with a competing carrier, some Safeco policies may receive notices of non-renewal based on specific state regulations. Agents wishing to continue to write nonprofit social service accounts with Safeco should contact NIF Group at 877-426-7643. For more information, visit
