      Reporting Potential Claims Before Your Renewal

      Before renewing your coverage with APA you MUST report any potential claim or situation that may give rise to a future claim.
      Claims reporting must be made to the appropriate program insurer or coverage could be denied.
      Any potential claim or situation which may give rise to a claim that you are aware of before the date of your renewal must be reported to Liberty Mutual – the insurer of the APA program for the 2016/2017 Policy Period ending April 30, 2017.

      Reporting potential claims will not affect your future coverage or your current renewal – we urge our members to report any potential claim or situation which may give rise to a claim prior to their renewal to ensure that coverage will be afforded without undue complications or potential denial of coverage.

      If you are unsure of a situation speak with Advocis Broker Services Representative before your renewal
