1 w J.D. Power Reports: Homeowners in Canada Filing More Insurance Claims for Storm Damage, While Satisfaction with Insurance Providers Improves BCAA, The Personal and SSQ General Each Rank Highest In Home Insurance Satisfaction in Their Respective Region TORONTO: 5 June 2014 Despite a significant increase in weather-related insurance claims in Canada, customer satisfaction with their insurance provider even among those who file a claim is improving, according to the J.D. Power released today. The annual study examines customer satisfaction with their homeowners insurer by examining five factors: interaction; price; policy offerings; billing and payment; and claims. Year over year, the number of weather-related claims has increased by 32 percent; yet, overall customer satisfaction has improved nationally to 770 (on a 1,000-point scale) from 761 in Satisfaction improves by 17 points in the Atlantic/Ontario region to 771 and by 11 points in the Western region to 752, while satisfaction declines by 13 points in the Quebec region to 794. While it may seem contradictory that satisfaction increases when a homeowner files a claim, the claims process is when customers actually see the value of the premiums they have been paying, said Jeremy Bowler, senior director of the insurance practice at J.D. Power. Insurance is a product customers hope they never have to use, but when they do have to, that s the opportunity for the insurance provider to make good on their promise. Two out of five (41%) of the home insurance claims were for weather-related damage. Among customers who filed a weather-related claim, satisfaction with the claims process averages 790, up from 764 in 2013 when 31 percent of claims were for storm damage. Claims satisfaction among customers whose homes suffered non-weather-related water damage the second most common type of claim (21%) averages 808. While the national average claims satisfaction score is trending upward, regional patterns vary. The Western region has the largest portion of weather-related claims (45%) and, despite a 35-point improvement from 2013, the lowest claims satisfaction at 773. The Atlantic/Ontario region has the greatest increase in weather-related damage up 35 percent from 2013 while the average claims satisfaction score in the region has improved by 65 points to 817. Non-weather-related water damage is nearly as common as weather-related damage in the Quebec region (26% vs. 32%, respectively), where overall claims satisfaction scores average 787, down by 4 points from A larger proportion of customers in 2014 indicate their insurer fully covered everything they thought should be covered, compared with 2013 (87% vs. 82%, respectively), which significantly increases claims satisfaction by more than 200 points on a national level. (Page 1 of 2)

2 Satisfaction Rankings The Personal (807) ranks highest in the Atlantic/Ontario region. Allstate, Co-operators and State Farm rank second in a three-way tie at. SSQ General (805) ranks highest in the Quebec region, closely followed by La Capitale (804) and The Personal (803). BCAA ranks highest in the Western region for a third consecutive year, with a score of 819. Following BCAA in the rankings are Portage Mutual Insurance (774) and Wawanesa (770). KEY FINDINGS Contributing to the year-over-year improvement in overall satisfaction on a national level is a 10-point increase in the price index, the third most important driver of customer satisfaction. Despite the improvement, price continues to be the lowest-scoring factor in the customer experience, due in part to sustained premium increases in the industry, with 45 percent of customers indicating they have received a premium increase in Among customers who receive a premium increase, overall satisfaction is significantly higher when they receive an explanation of the increase than when they do not receive an explanation (751 vs. 703, respectively). When presented with a list of perils included under their homeowners policy, 24 percent of customers indicate they don t know which perils are included under their policy. Additionally, 21 percent of customers believe their home is covered for overland flooding a peril that is not covered under a homeowners policy in Canada. The 2014 Canadian Home Insurance Study is based on responses from 7,092 home insurance customers.
