A Pilot Study of Personal Auto Insurance Literacy and its
Potential Relationship with Self-Efficacy and Channel Selection  
(work in process Click here )

Financial responsibility laws vary by state, but all involve an amount of money for
each person injured in an accident, a total amount for all persons injured in an
accident and a separate amount for damage to property. The most common method
used to demonstrate financial responsibility is with an automobile insurance policy.   

New York State Financial Responsibility Law REQUIRES proof of insurance.
An insurance policy is a LEGAL CONTRACT

Testimonials ~ Play Game to Learn
IIABNY
I just read the PropertyCasualty360.com article about you and went in to look at your online insurance game "Play Game to LEARN" which I found really good. I am our InVEST liaison and I am going to share this game with our National (IIABA) office and our local high schools that run our InVEST program. I didn't think you would mind.

If you are not familiar with InVEST, it provides insurance training to high school students. If you have a school in your area that might be interested in a program, I would be glad to help you get one started. Let me know. And again Congratulations on being profiled and for your cool insurance game!

Hi, Lorraine,
Dee Macheda had sent me the link to your games. Wow – they are awesome!!! Are you aware of InVEST and what we do? If not, I’d be happy to chat with you and explain our program and what we do.
I was wondering if you’d allow us to promote your games on our website for other schools to use? If you go to www.learninsurance.org and click on the “learning insurance” tab you’ll see the information we put online for students.

Such great work you have done!! I look forward to hearing from you!

Cyber criminals are becoming more sophisticated as technology connects our lives as never before in history. From our smart phones and laptops to complex infrastructure systems, cyber criminals have more platforms and opportunities to strike. Marshall & Sterling has the expertise and access to the leading markets that specifically address cyber related exposures associated with your organization.
