Demystifying Insurance

Insurance can be a complicated business, but an updated guide to the industry from the I.I.I. is designed to help. The Insurance Handbook for Reporters provides concise explanations of auto, home, life, disability and business insurance. Features include a comprehensive glossary, listings of hundreds of insurance organizations and a guide to insurance industry resources. This year’s glossary section includes more than 500 entries with over 100 life insurance definitions provided by LOMA, a worldwide association of life and financial services companies. So whether you’re trying to write about annuities, expense ratios or flood insurance, the Handbook — used in conjunction with the Institute’s Web site and other publications — should make life easier.
