Insurance Commissioner Karen Weldin Stewart is alerting drivers in Delaware that as of June 25, 2014, Delaware law-enforcement officials will accept proof of auto insurance (insurance ID card) in physical or electronic format.
With the passage of Senate Bill 42 (SB 42) in 2013 there are new Medigap options available to disabled Medicare recipients under 65 but time to purchase the plans is limited. SB 42 became effective on January 1, 2014, and requires insurance companies that offer Medigap policies to people 65 and older to also offer the same policies to anyone under the age of 65 who qualifies for Medicare due to a disability.
Insurance Commissioner Karen Weldin Stewart wants Delaware residents to prepare for the potential damages and interruptions brought by strong summer storms and hurricanes; the Atlantic hurricane season started June 1. Doing the proper planning now can potentially help save time, money and frustration in the coming months should your home or personal property be negatively impacted by storms, floods or other natural disasters this summer or fall.
The ELDERinfo program, which has been helping Delaware Medicare recipients for 21 years, is changing its name to the Delaware Medicare Assistance Bureau (DMAB) in an effort to reach more of Delaware’s Medicare beneficiaries.
