Part Three – Everything You Need to Know About Insurance Panel Discussion

Series: Everything You Need to Know About Insurance

Guest: Dan Blatch of IMFG and Jeremy Andison of Intertrade Insurance Solutions

With so many options and types of insurance policies, it can be challenging to identify what is relevant for your situation. It can feel overwhelming if you’re not adequately informed when it comes to insurance-related policies and differences.

Drawing a close to the ‘Everything You Need to Know About Insurance’ series, today’s episode will be a panel discussion, and we’re back with insurance specialists Dan Blatch and Jeremy Andison. In this episode, we will help you understand the differences and crossovers with the insurance policies we discussed in the first two episodes. We’ll also talk about the dynamics and relationships between different insurance coverages, insurers, and policies.

As tradies, we often overlook the importance of insurance, and I am sure this series is relevant for everyone in the industry. Don’t miss out and tune in to this jam-packed episode!

    Here’s a quick recap of this series: first, we discussed the importance of life insurance and income protection. Then in the second episode, we talked about the general side of insurance concerning your workers’ compensation. Finally, in this panel discussion, we tackled a few of the crossovers in those policies.

    Today, we tackled some of the crossovers that might get mixed up when communicating between different insurance brokers. It also explains the importance of having brokers, especially with something as complex as insurance. Some avoid them because of the costs, but with brokers, you’re getting the right help and the coverage you need.

    This episode wraps up our comprehensive insurance series. We tried our best to cover all angles of insurance in this series.
