To give you an overall idea of how the insurance that Dickey McCay offers will bring you, your business, and your family the peace of mind that comes with the preparation for a rainy day, below is a quick overview of each type of insurance we offer at both physical locations and to the surrounding areas where we will travel to serve you.

Auto, Home, & Personal Insurance

Auto insurance protects you against the financial losses that often occur if the policyholder is involved in a car accident. The insurance policy is a contract between you, Dickey McCay’s valued customer, and one of our many excellent insurance companies which we will select together that best fits your lifestyle. Tennessee, Georgia, and North Carolina, all three states that Dickey McCay Insurance serve require drivers to carry certain minimum amounts of auto insurance coverage in case of an accident. Currently, North Carolina,Tennessee and Georgia require drivers to have liability insurance which is the legally required minimum coverage. Your Georgia or Tennessee car insurance policy must have the following minimum coverage amounts:

  • $25,000 for bodily injury/$30,000 for North Carolina
  • $50,000 for bodily injury when two or more people are hurt
  • $15,000 for property damage in Tennessee/$25,000 in Georgia

Most auto insurance policies are for six months to a year, and Dickey McCay and the insurance companies we work with will notify you when it is time to renew your vehicle’s policy and to pay your insurance premium. When you pay your car insurance premium, the insurance company copacetically agrees to pay your losses as defined in your policy through Dickey McCay. Auto insurance through the 35 companies that work with Dickey McCay provide property, liability and medical coverage.

Homeowner’s insurance provides financial protection against disasters that can occur to you and your family’s home through one of our North Carolina, Tennessee, or Georgia locations. A standard policy provided through Dickey McCay insures the home itself and the furniture, memories, and the other articles you keep in your home that are important to you. Homeowners insurance is typically a package policy meaning that it covers both damage to your property and your legal responsibility for any injuries and/or property damage to you or others. Damage caused by most disasters is covered but there are exceptions such as damage caused by floods, so Dickey McCay will you help you fully protect your home with flood coverage.    

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.”

Our flood insurance policies and the incredible companies we work will typically reimburse you for all covered building losses up to $250,000 for residential occupancies and up to $500,000 for businesses. 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
  • Theft
  • 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.

Business

Business Owners Policy Insurance includes property insurance for buildings and contents owned by the company as well as business interruption insurance which covers the loss of income that may result from a fire or other unforeseen disasters that interrupt the operation of the business and/or the expense of operating out of a temporary location. Additionally, business owners policy insurance comprises liability protection, which covers your company’s legal responsibility for the harm it may cause others.

Cyber insurance is a policy created to help an organization or business reduce risks by offsetting costs involved with recovery after a cyber-related security breach. Cyber insurance typically cover the following:

  • Investigations
  • Business losses
  • Privacy and notification
  • Lawsuits and extortion

General Liability Insurance helps protect the policyholder’s business from property damage claims, bodily injury claims, and/or personal and advertising injury claims. For instance, general liability insurance helps protect you and your business if a customer slips and injures him or herself at your business then your general liability insurance policy can help pay for the damages.

We have a knowledgeable and trustworthy team that knows the pieces you need to protect and cover you and your assets if you are a large or small business or even a general contractor. We can Safeguard your investment. Dickey McCay Insurance Agency has the right insurance solution for you.

Workers compensation insurance comes into play for business owners who are legally required to take care to assure that their workplaces are safe. Still, accidents happen and when they do, workers compensation insurance provides coverage by serving two purposes:

  • If one of your employees is injured, worker’s compensation insurance assures that the injured worker gets medical care and compensation for part of the income they lose while they are unable to return to work. Dickey McCay also offers policies that protect employers from lawsuits by workers who may be injured while working.
  • Another benefit is that workers receive benefits regardless of who was at fault in the accident. Additionally, if a worker is killed while working with your business then workers comp will provide death benefits for the worker’s dependents.

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.
