CPCU – Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter:
What is a CPCU?
Choosing an insurance agent or broker for your home, auto, or business insurance isn’t difficult when you know what to look for: the letters “CPCU” after your insurance provider’s name.
CPCU stands for Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter and is recognized as the premier professional designation of the property and casualty insurance industry.
When you choose a CPCU, you can be sure that you are working with someone who has significant experience and can offer you guidance on all of your insurance decisions. Someone who keeps up-to-date on issues and coverage and is able to offer you the best protection possible at competitive prices. And someone who agrees to an enforceable code of ethics and pledges to put your interests above his or her own.
Why Choose a CPCU?
Simply put, CPCU’s are dedicated to helping consumers make better insurance decisions. To earn the credential, CPCU’s must pass ten national examinations covering such diverse subjects as insurance law, ethics, accounting, and management. The comprehensive process generally takes about five years. In addition, CPCU’s must also have industry experience and abide by an enforceable code of professional ethics.
These demanding standards ensure that when you choose a CPCU for your insurance needs, you are choosing someone who not only has your best interests in mind, but someone who has the background an knowledge to prove it.
Have Confidence in Your Insurance Decision:
When your insurance adviser is a CPCU and member of the CPCU Society, you can be confident that you are dealing with a reputable, educated, and experienced professional. So, when it comes to property and casualty insurance advise, look for the “CPCU” letters. It will make your choice easy.
