AScK is pleased to announce its exclusive endorsement of Capital Premium Financing, Inc. AScK evaluated the top providers of premium financing and chose Capital as a recognized leader in service and a trusted partner in the premium finance loan industry.
What is Premium Finance?
Premium finance is a way for a policy holder to finance their annual premium over time and eliminates the need for an insured's lump-sum payment to the insurance company.
Capital is different from other premium financing companies in that it provides additional revenue streams to its clients through patent-pending, profit-sharing programs.
How do I get started?
Call AScK at 800.229.7048. You can submit finance requests online, via email and fax, or have one of our friendly staff personally assist you over the phone. With Capital you can earn additional revenue and be a trusted partner in every sense of the word. YOu will support KAIA as you increase our bottom line.
Capital was founded in 1988 by david F. Gabrielsen who serves as its CEO and continues to manage day-to-day operations in conjunction with a highly qualified team of professional financial managers comprising combined commercial banking, investment portfolio management, and fiancial institution regulatory experience of over 150 years.
The KMU Safety Group Insurance Program is available for all cities under 17,500 in population. The program requires that all participants have a common anniversary date of April 1st, however, initial participation can begin on any date.
Since this is a “Safety Group Insurance Program,” the potential for a dividend exists. The premium and losses for all cities written in the program are combined for the purpose of calculating dividends. If the loss experience for the group generates a dividend, each member participates, even though the losses of an individual member may be higher than other members of the group.
The Kansas County Safety Dividend Group Insurance Program is available to all counties in Kansas subject to company underwriting. It was developed by EMC and KAIA and is competitive with the County Associations two pools: KCAMP and KWORCC. Unlike the KMU program, there is no common anniversary date. This program has the potential for a dividend for all coverages – including Workers’ Compensation – with the exception of the Umbrella and Linebacker coverages. The program for counties offers all the same coverages as the KMU program: Public Officials E&O, Law Enforcement Professional, and an Umbrella that provides coverage where the Kansas Tort Claims Act does not.
EMC offers a competitive program for townships. Any township in Kansas is eligible, subject to company underwriting. This program is not a safety group program; therefore it does not offer the potential of dividends. However, it offers the same comprehensive coverage that is available to cities and counties at a competitive price.
With EMC’s expertise in public entity insurance, it was only natural that they develop a fire department program to compliment their already successful public entity programs. If you have an account you would like to submit, complete an ACORD application and submit to ASCK.

This is a safety dividend program specifically designed for Kansas Schools and Community Colleges. The program provides specially designed, broad insurance coverage for schools and community colleges.

RLI has announced a broadening of risk appetite that will enable you to write more stand-alone personal umbrella business with the A+ rated admitted market.
The In-Home Business Policy (IBP) provides certain coverages for your clients who operate small businesses out of their homes.

Many standard homeowners policies exclude any liability arising from a business in the home.
Accessing RLI has never been easier. You can submit a hard copy application to ASCK, or you can use RLI's online submission process. You may login to the RLI portal here. Whatever way you choose to access the RLI Personal Umbrella product, remember that ALL of your customers will benefit from the extra liability protection that an umbrella provides!
