Happy Thanksgiving

The holiday season is in full swing and Thanksgiving may just be the climax of it all. The one holiday in which gifts nor candy bring out the smiles but family and friends do. This year, focus less time judging the turkey and stuffing and more time reflecting all that we have, which we take for granted each and every day. Soak in the moment and snap some photos to create ever lasting memories, be appreciative of all those who don’t get the holiday off and remember the small things like being able to see or hear all the affection around you. From all of us here at Western Mutual and Arizona Home Insurance, we wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving!

Opening a Claim Help Guide

As a preferred insurance company, we understand that filing a claim is not only stressful but can seem difficult to do. These unforeseen events cause more than just damage but also leave you feeling hopeless. We want to let you know that help is available.

When discovering a potential claim at your home, we would like to remind you of some tips that’ll make the process easier:

  1. Call your insurance company right away, do not wait for the risk or damage to become bigger
  2. If you find water has started to cause damage or has flooded any space in your house, shut the water off immediately
  3. If you don’t remember your policy number, it’s okay! We have other methods of finding your policy with us
  4. Do not call a third party to clean-up, patch or inspect conditions without contacting your insurance first
  5. Keep records such as receipts, photos and videos of your items within your home
  6. Always hire licensed contractors to perform work on your home, this is for your protection

Remembering our Veterans

Today we honor the more than 18 million brave men and women that have served our nation. Many whom left behind their family, loved ones and all they knew to stand on the frontlines and protect this country. Without those sacrifices from these valiant individuals we would be unable to enjoy so many things that we have grown accustom to. As a company, family member and proud citizen, together we would like to honor our veterans on this special day as well as each and every day.

“A true hero isn’t measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart”
