Having the right kind and right amount of insurance is a key to preparedness and resilience. 

Thank you to the Denver Urban Area Sevurity Initiative (UASI) for funding this 2020 preparedness campaign.  Through our tips from the Trenches webinar series, our nonprofit organization United Policyholders (UP) reached Colorado residents with road-tested tips on how to be a savvy and smart consumer when it comes to insuring your biggest asset: your home.  With 30 years helping disaster survivors navigate the insurance claim process UP knows what matters when it comes to insurance.

I attended the “Tips from the Trenches” webinar on 9/29/2020 and found it very helpful! It inspired me to do an insurance checkup that resulted in several adjustments to our policies and even got me to do a video inventory of our house!”

“What a great presentation! I ended up bringing my husband to watch with me too. Several people commented in the chat that it was so interesting and they wish they had known before.  Thank you so much for the wonderful information and presentation”
