Our Five Foundations

A strong foundation is key to weathering storms. The five foundations of UPC Insurance unify our mission and help us stand strong for our policyholders, agency partners, and team members.  


Our financial strength assures our ability to pay claims.

Your policy is worthless if the company issuing it can’t pay claims after a major event. UPC Insurance is tested in this regard, having paid claims on tens of thousands of routine events and multiple separate tropical storms and hurricanes. Throughout it all, we remain financially sound. We have $520 million of equity capital and buy more than $3.1 billion of additional reinsurance coverage to protect our policyholders.


Flexible product options meet unique needs.

We offer a selection of customizable products, designed to provide affordable options with superior protection. For both residential and commercial lines, we listen to our agents to understand the needs of policyholders and develop products that meet these needs.


Timely, fair resolution of claims.

We process claims using professional in-house UPC associates who share our commitment to excellence. No matter the situation, we strive to provide all policyholders a timely response and fair resolution of their claims. The results are prompt restoration or replacement of the property and high customer satisfaction.


We’re easy to work with!

We know you’re busy, so for both agents and policyholders, we want your experience of doing business with UPC to be easy and efficient. That means the ability to report claims and access policy information online, easy access to a UPC representative by phone to answer your questions, and much more.


Our sensible pricing supports everyone’s best interests.

We pledge always to provide a price that accurately reflects the risk we are assuming in writing a policy. That is fair pricing, and in the long run it works to the benefit of agents and policyholders. We want to be competitive with other carriers, but we won’t cut prices to win business if it jeopardizes our financial stability and ability to pay claims in all circumstances.

A Track Record of Success

UPC Insurance is committed to financial stability and long-term solvency. We use a combination of our own capital and reinsurance capital to provide assurance that policyholder claims can be paid in a timely manner after a natural catastrophe. For UPC, this is not a theoretical exercise. During our history, we have paid $3.3 billion in total claims from multiple major hurricanes and tropical storms, and thousands of routine events.
