How the Hurricane Protection Unit® Works

The Hurricane Protection Unit® works to help you proactively alleviate wind and water damage and preserve the value of furnishings, artwork and other possessions. Two core services are provided:

Pre-season disaster planning

Prior to hurricane season, policyholders in eligible locales can request a home consultation with an AIG Private Client Group hurricane mitigation specialist. Each consultation will include, but is not limited to, the following discussion points:

  • Developing a formal plan that can serve as an outline for evacuation
  • Establishing emergency contact numbers and obtaining authorization to access properties
  • Installing shutter systems
  • Protecting and/or relocating valuable items to higher levels or self-contained storage areas
  • Relocating vehicles or placing them on lifts
  • Moving drapes and window treatments away from openings
  • Locking down doors and windows
  • Stabilizing vegetation and trees
  • Securing and protecting outdoor art
  • Removing outdoor items, such as furniture, that could become airborne
  • Creating maintenance programs for window caulking, threshold inspections, seals around doors, roofing, tree trimming, drain systems and back-up generator systems

Post-storm outreach

We closely track the progress and projected landfall of approaching storms. This helps us identify insured homes that are likely to be the most vulnerable.

After landfall, we make every effort to contact affected policyholders to check in, assist in expediting claims, and provide connections to qualified restoration companies.
