Besides being a Long Island Insurance Executive, Gregg S. Marcus is also a humanitarian and philanthropist. Gregg always finds the time to lend a hand to charities that he holds close to his heart. With Rosh Hashana beginning tonight at sundown, this would be the perfect time to feature one of Gregg’s favorite charity organizations, Hineni Jewish Heritage Foundation.

Hineni means, “Here I am.” It was the response of all the patriarchs and prophets of Israel to the call of G-d and signals total dedications and commitment to Jewish life. In 1982, Hineni Heritage Foundation first opened its doors in New York City. Today, the center, which was the first of it’s kind in the world, offers a comprehensive series of programs, including Torah, Talmud, Kabalah, Prophets, History, Rituals and Ceremonies in the home and synagogue, Hebrew language and Prayer, and one-on-one tutoring. Hineni also offers lectures, family counseling, an introduction service for singles and social gatherings.

Is Removal of a Tree That Fell on my Roof during a Storm Covered by Homeowner’s Insurance?

Here is an excerpt from a new blog post at GreggMarcus.com:

With Hurricane season still in full swing, chances are we will get hit with at least another bad storm this year. It is important to know if your homeowner’s insurance covers issues like these. If a tree falls onto your roof during a storm, your homeowner’s insurance policy WILL cover the repair of your roof as well as some, if not all, of the cost of tree removal. However, had the tree not hit your roof, your insurance may not cover any of the tree removal charges. In this post, Gregg S. Marcus, a Long Island Insurance Executive, explains what steps to take after a tree falls on your home’s roof during a storm.

ROOF DAMAGE
The first thing you need to do is contact the insurance company to report the damage. You should do this right away! Many insurance providers have 24/7 claims hotlines; so don’t hesitate to call them at any hour to let them know about any storm damage. The insurance company will want to send an adjuster out to your property to conduct an inspection, but you should also keep a record of the damage by taking pictures and/or videotaping the relevant area of your home.

FAQ: Do I Really Need Renter’s Insurance?

Here is an excerpt from a new blog post at GreggMarcus.com:

A fire can destroy an apartment in only minutes. A tornado can destroy one in just seconds. These scenarios or even a robbery in your apartment can end up costing you thousands of dollars in order to replace all of your personal belongings. Think you don’t have enough property to justify the expense of your own insurance? The value of your belongings may shock you. “Your sporting goods, electronics, computers, clothes and furnishings may be worth more than you realize,” says Gregg S. Marcus, a Long Island Insurance Executive . “It is wise to check into renter’s insurance before an unexpected event like this happens.”

Your landlord’s insurance policy covers damage to the building structure and the landlord’s property from a fire, storm or theft, but this policy will not cover your property or liability. Renters insurance (also known as a HO4 policy) covers you against specific types of losses – such as damage from lightning, fire, storms, vandalism or theft – so that you can replace or repair your property in the event of an incident. If you had to pay out of pocket to replace items such as laptops, televisions, clothing and other expensive possessions, this could cost upwards of $20,000.

HOW TO: Cut Your Car Insurance Costs

Here is an excerpt from a new blog post at GreggMarcus.com:

According to the Insurance Information Institute, the average American driver spends over $900 per year on car insurance. There are many factors that impact the amount a driver pays for their automobile insurance.  In this post, Gregg S. Marcus, a Long Island Insurance Executive, discusses what steps to take to cut those high premiums down!

Drive Less
If high gas prices have led you to cut down on your driving, make sure your insurance company knows it. Ask your agent what the low mileage discount is on your policy. Generally if you drive less than 7,500 miles a year, you’ll qualify for a 5 percent discount. Driving less than 5,000 miles a year will usually give you 10 percent off your insurance.
