Empire Underwriters, a Program Manager, Managing General Agent and Excess and Surplus lines Broker is expanding its reach into New York State and surrounding states providing P&C Agents with Workers Comp coverage for Preferred, Standard, and Hard-To-Place accounts. With over four decades of experience Empire sought to provide producers affordable Workers Comp programs with a wide selection of class codes for preferred policyholders, standard risks and even employers that have High X-Mods, multi-state operations or perform work in hazardous industries. Empire also features special programs for policyholders which have previous claims histories, have canceled or non-renewed coverage, and for those looking to get out of the state pool or fund. “We are excited with the expansion into the New York market. Our New York producers have been telling us for some time that they had a lack of viable options when it came to finding Workers Compensation coverage for their tougher to place clients. Our New York and Northeastern states partners are telling us they need solutions and capacity. We wanted to create a robust selection of offerings for agents that they can pass along to their customers.” said the CEO. “These are offered by several of our National “A” Rated Carriers as well as our highest rated regional partners that have been successful with us in other US Regions for some time including the West Coast. Now it is time we bring these solutions to the great State of New York and throughout the Northeast.” Accommodating over 500 White, Gray, and Blue collar classes, many of Empire Underwriter’s new programs will provide a wide range of useful options including Monthly Payroll Reporting, aggressive claims management and loss control assistance. Some products may also offer HR assistance and Affordable Care Act compliance services for those employers who are seeking such services. “We are aggressively appointing New York Agents and Brokers and those in the surrounding states with policyholders that operate in the States of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. These producers must be aggressively seeking to expand their offerings and ways in which to better accommodate their already growing book of business. Empire Underwriters strives to make the process easier, faster and to help the producer keep more business.” Noted Senior Underwriter, Greg Brittain. Along with the expansion of hard-to-write markets into New York, Empire Underwriters brings access to a wide range of product and services offerings including Alternative Workers Compensation, Commercial Property, Builders Risk, High-Value Homeowners including Coastal Property and many more.
