Flood Insurance is also offered through Dickey McCay Insurance and offers many benefits in addition to your homeowner’s insurance. Even if living in the Copperhill or Tellico Plains, TN areas, North Georgia, or Murphy, NC areas where the risk of flooding in your home is relatively slim, your home is still at risk; according the the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) “more than 20 percent of the NFIP’s claims come from outside the mapped Special Flood Hazard Areas.”

Contents coverage is also available up to $100,000 for residential occupancies and up to $500,000 for businesses.
Renters Insurance comes into play after you have read the fine print in your lease for your rental space. Many renters assume that their landlord is responsible for damages caused by problems with the home or apartment such as a leaky roof or a broken appliance, but there could be a clause in your lease that negates your landlord’s liability. In fact, some landlords write into the lease a requirement that for the renter to acquire renters’ insurance, especially if you live in an expensive apartment or home. Regardless of whether or not it’s required, below are a few example of when renters’ insurance is extremely beneficials:
- Guest Injuries
- Natural Disasters
- Unnatural Fires of Short-Circuit Damage
- Damage You Caused Yourself
Personal Articles and Inland Marine Insurance: These types of policies offered through Dickey McCay cover personal items in the policyholder’s possession that are not covered by your typical homeowners insurance policy which only offers between $1,500 – $2,550 of coverage for your assets such as jewelry, guns, antiques, furs, sports equipment, musical instruments, and other valuable personal property.
Life, Health & Disability Insurance
Individual life insurance policies work so that you will pay premiums to one of Dickey McCay’s excellent insurance companies over time, and, in exchange, the company will pay a lump sum amount to a/the designated beneficiary/ies upon your death. The money from your life insurance policy can help your recipient to pay bills and assist in supporting your surviving family members’ living expenses.
We will also help you if you need to adjust the amount of your life insurance policy in the case of major life events such as buying a home, getting married, or having a child. Since there is no certain amount of life insurance you need, there are life variables that our agents in Tellico, TN, Copperhill, TN, Murphy, NC and North Georgia can help you consider when deciding how much money to invest in your life insurance policy; for example, if you have dependents you want to provide for or if you want to leave an inheritance to charities, you may need a bit more life insurance.
Individual and Family Health Insurance needs are different for everyone, which is why Dickey McCay offers a variety of options through our many different selections of reputable and experienced insurance carriers to make sure you have the coverage you need at an affordable cost. Since everyone is different with such different needs for his or her lifestyles whether it be due to his or health, income, family, etc., we will work with you to create a plan that works best for you and your family.
