Effective May 26, 2015, the ARRL will be changing the program administrator for its sponsored Equipment and Club Liability insurance plans. Beginning on that date, all program administration including policy application, issuance and claims administration will be handled by Risk Strategies, a privately held, national insurance brokerage firm. The ARRL programs will be administered from their offices in Chicago, Illinois.
This move is being made based on the results of numerous comments from the ARRL membership relative to the former administrator, Hays Affinity Group which is based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The transaction, unlike previous changes, will involve a transfer of the total program business from Hays Affinity to Risk Strategies. Participants in the programs will retain their current insurance policies and the details of the coverage and the cost of coverage will remain unchanged, as will the insurance company, Hanover Insurance Company. An e-mail will be sent to all the current participants in the programs describing the changes and what, if anything, they need to do to access their on-line information.
The web address for the programs will be the same, www.arrlinsurance.com, but will take on a new look with improved functionality. The 800 numbers will also remain unchanged for contacting the new administrator. There will be a short delay in bringing up the new site once the programs have been transferred and we appreciate your patience while Risk Strategies makes the programs operational.
