Security America Pays Off in Business – or on the Golf Course
Substantial Savings & Eight Years of Rate Stability
Are Hallmarks of the Security Industry’s Top Insurance Provider

Irving, Texas (Sept. 7, 2012) — Working with Security America Risk Retention Group (SARRG) pays off handsomely for security industry companies who save money annually on their insurance. Just ask George Abdoo of Sentinel Security & Communications in New Hartford, N.Y., about other benefits of rubbing elbows with SARRG.

Abdoo, who is treasurer of the New York Burglar and Fire Alarm Association (NYBFAA), took home the $10,000 hole-in-one prize, sponsored by SARRG, at the association’s annual conference and golf tournament on Aug. 1. In addition to the featured hole-in-one prize, conference attendees received awards for the day's top achievements such as longest drive, closest to the pin as well as first- and second-place foursomes.

"We’re so excited to be part of George's once-in-a-lifetime experience, particularly since his company is a policyholder and he was playing in the tournament with his family,” said Security America President Michael Keegan. "SARRG takes pride in being able to give back to our industry by sponsoring these events, but this hole-in-one is something that we are extremely proud of, as well as being happy for George.”

"SARRG talks constantly about putting money back in our policyholders’ pockets,” Keegan added, "but George’s shot takes that statement to a whole new level.”

Security America has always been a huge source of savings by offering competitive premiums on general liability insurance, including errors and omissions, specifically tailored to meet the needs of security industry companies. In addition, SARRG Program Manager Richard Poling says it’s also worth noting that the base rates for Security America policyholders have not increased since 2004. That adds a large dose of stability on top of savings.

"In fact, after an analysis of our competitors’ rates, our particular loss history and the legal environment in some states, approximately 12 states received rate reductions,” according to Poling. The base rate is the starting point for determining the ultimate premium charged by SARRG, he said, and is affected by the specifics of the risks, claims and in some cases, minimum premiums.

"No other insurance company that we are aware of can make this same statement of stability in rates during a period of more than eight years,” Poling added.

Security America was developed by the Electronic Security Association (ESA) as a way to offer affordable and stable insurance for companies in the electronic security industry. For more information, or to obtain a free, no-obligation rate quote, contact SARRG at (866) 315-3838; via e-mail at info@securityamericarrg.com; or by visiting its website at www.securityamericarrg.com.
