What’s New with UMIP? A New Year, A New UMIP!

A new year means new adventures, new resolutions, and new beginnings. While you’re focusing on becoming the new and improved “you,” we’re busy working on making the United Methodist Insurance Program (UMIP) even better than before. We encourage everyone to become familiar with our enhancements. This year we’re introducing new ways to help your church. Whether you’ve partnered with us in the past or are brand new to our program, here are just a few of the great benefits currently offered by the United Methodist Insurance Program:

New Ways to Save:

Top-Tier Carriers:

UMIP has added several new insurance carriers to our already robust network of top-tier carriers. What does this mean for you? It means that we have even more opportunities to help find you the best possible price when quoting you.

Tailored Coverage Options:

We continue to improve the coverage options. The UMIP has tailored coverage options designed so you can select what best meets the needs of your church.

New Ways to Interact:

More risk management resources:

As a subscriber to the Church Protection Connection, you are familiar with the risk management resources available to you. If you’re not familiar, be sure to take a look at some of the resources we‘ve created throughout 2020. In the coming year, we’ll have more to help you protect your ministry.

Reignited Social Media:

This past fall, we began a revival of our social media efforts on Facebook. On the UMIP's Facebook page, we’ve been sharing important insurance information and risk management resources to further the discussion around church insurance.

If you haven’t done so already, be sure to like our Facebook page and join the 1,200+ friends of the UMIP, to learn more about protecting your ministry.

Continued Outstanding Customer Service:

Offering savings and resources go hand-in-hand with outstanding customer service to our UMIP customers. After each phone call, surveys revealed that in 2020 we regularly maintained an average customer satisfaction rating of 99%. That’s because we are committed to serving you.

These enhancements are just a few of the ways that we’ve been working to strengthen the United Methodist Insurance Program for our customers. We hope that you find these new improvements valuable. To us, you are more than just an insurance customer. You’re a part of a group that’s designed for United Methodists by United Methodists.

When you are covered by UMIP, we will be there when you need us. Churches have unique needs. As a part of the denomination, we understand the unique needs of United Methodist churches and their operations, which is reflected in our coverage options. Your ministry deserves outstanding insurance and UMIP works for you each day to help protect your church’s people, property, and finances.
