New Activity Process: Review and Provide Additional Information
February 27, 2017
Citizens has improved the PolicyCenter® process for notifying agents when additional underwriting information is required to determine if a property meets eligibility requirements for a new-business submission or existing policy. This new process will shorten underwriting processing times dramatically.
Review and Provide Additional Information Activity
The agent of record will receive a Review and Provide Additional Information activity on their Desktop when an Underwriter needs additional information and/or supporting documents. To view and complete the activity:
- Open the activity and select View Reasons for details of the Underwriter’s request.
- Select Link Document to attach supporting documents and/or photos to the activity. If necessary, add a note to the Text box.
- Select Return to Underwriter by the due date. The activity will be removed from your Desktop.
