History of Insurance
Insurance has been around far longer than most people think. Insurance’s birth year was around 3000 B.C. when the Chinese introduced it by spreading out their goods upon several ships to avoid major loss if an accident were to happen. In 1666 A.D., Nicholas Barbon created the first insurance company after a massive fire broke out in London. Then, in the 1850s along came health insurance. After that, in 1897, car insurance was introduced. Fast forward to present day and now almost anything you can think of can be insured. Although the basic principles are the same, insurance has come a long way since 3000 B.C.
The best way to participate in Insurance Awareness Day is by talking to an insurance agent that can review various policies for you and your family. And remember, always stay informed.
