Tampa, FL - In late June the Citizens board voted to raise rates by a statewide average of 7 percent next year. The rate hike still needs approval by state regulators. But if approved, it would translate into $178 million in new insurance costs for policyholders like you.
Citizens Property Insurance Corporation will hold "Office Hours" at the Chamber's Headquarters today from 9:00-11:00am. In response to Senator Brandes' request, Citizens will have staff available to assist those who have questions about their homeowner's insurance policies.
