Municipalities receive insurance dividends
EMC Insurance Companies has declared and recently paid a dividend to members of their Municipality Safety Dividend Program.
Local agent Jeff Skeels of HomeTown Agency has presented checks to the City of Grant, the Village of Madrid, the Village of Venango and the Village of Elsie.
This marks the 15th time in the past 19 years EMC has paid a dividend in the state of Nebraska.
The dividend in 2013 represents 14.6 percent of eligible premium.
EMC and their local agents are delivering 321 checks in 2013. The total dividends paid this year is $1,178,062.52. In Perkins County, agent Jeff Skeels delivered a check to the City of Grant for $4,944.46.
The Village of Madrid got a check for $1,572.25. The Village of Venango was the recipient of dividends totaling $1,179.96, and the Village of Elsie received $583.29 in dividends.
EMC was recently ranked in the Top 100 of “Most Trustworthy Companies” by Forbes Magazine in all industries.
A contributing factor to allow EMC to pay the dividends is the focus on safety and loss control by access for their specific needs.
EMC insures nearly half the cities eligible in Nebraska for the Municipality Safety Dividend Program.
Through this program, cities, villages and fire departments are able to secure a comprehensive and competitive insurance program with a financially strong insurance carrier along with local representation, access to safety and loss control services, and true flexibility in solving their risk protection needs.
