So what exactly is lemonade insurance?
This is a new property and casualty insurance company that is changing the whole insurance experience. They are focusing on creating an insurance experience that is affordable, fast, and also hassle free.
What does that mean, changing the insurance experience?
Let's break it down, Traditional companies keep the money they do not pay out in claims. This simply means that whenever your insurer pays your claim, they lose their profit. This can make getting your claims paid quickly and efficiently a hassle at times.
Lemonade Insurance was created to be different. They take a fixed, flat fee out of every monthly payment to pay for reinsurance and other expenses, and use whatever is left over for paying out claims. In simpler terms this means that they treat premiums paid as if it were still technically your funds.
This Insurance carrier is also different in the aspect that they use unclaimed remainders in their annual 'Giveback' program.
What is the Giveback Program?
This is a unique feature that belongs to Lemonade Insurance Corp. Each year, money that is left over is donated to policyholders. From Lemonade.com, please see the actual definition of this feature below to learn more.
"Giveback is a unique feature of Lemonade, where each year leftover money is donated to causes our policyholders care about. We treat policyholders who care about the same causes as virtual groups of 'peers'. Lemonade uses the premiums collected from each peer group to pay for the group's claims, giving back any leftover money to their common cause, and uses reinsurance to cover for cases where the group's claims exceed what's left in the pool. This way, our customers enjoy amazing insurance, and society gets a little push for the better. It also means that, unlike traditional insurance companies, we're not in conflict with our customers, so we're happy to pay claims fast and with no hassle."
