TWIA Actuarial & Underwriting Committee Reviews Wind Mitigation Credits

The Texas Windstorm Insurance Association’s (TWIA) Actuarial & Underwriting Committee met on October 19 to review wind mitigation credits available to TWIA policyholders and related issues. The committee also received an update on TWIA’s Request for Information on catastrophe modeling secondary modifier services.

During the meeting, the Committee voted to recommend to the TWIA Board that Association staff research and analyze the costs and benefits of offering additional wind mitigation credits to policyholders, including alternate exterior opening protection and roof replacement credits.

The Committee Chair, Debbie King, will provide these recommendations to the Board at their next quarterly meeting on Tuesday, December 7.
