Hurricane Irene: Claims Reporting

Hurricane Irene Status Update

A hurricane watch is now in effect along the North Carolina coast to the Virginia border.  It appears Irene may hug the coastline, potentially making a landfall slightly east of New York City on Sunday evening.  This track increases the potential for significant impact from Irene beginning Saturday night in southern Virginia and lasting into Monday in New England.  Even though Irene should weaken somewhat, it will still bring hurricane force winds, extreme rainfall, coastal flooding and a tornado threat.

Claims Reporting

OneBeacon will have full resources on hand for weekend reporting.  Additional call center reps and claims adjusters are on standby in the event that Irene generates excessive claims volume.  OneBeacon clients can report any claims arising from this storm by email, fax or telephone:

Back to school…

For the past eight years, the OneBeacon Charitable Trust has supported higher learning by awarding twenty $1,500 scholarships to our employees’ and distribution partners’ children. The scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, participation in extracurricular and community activities, work experience and more. The program is administered by Scholarship Management Services and funded by the OneBeacon Charitable Trust.

This year’s award winners are listed below.  A special congratulations to the Barber family, whose daughter Emily is their fourth child to receive a OneBeacon scholarship! Emily follows brothers Tim, Daniel and James who received scholarships in 2004, 2006 and 2008 respectively. Truly a family affair!

We wish all the scholarship winners a terrific start to their college years.
