As a local insurance agent that has been around for more than a hundred years, we’ve seen a lot here at HIG. We’ve seen the evolution of technology since the WWW first came out over 20 years ago. We’ve seen phone calls turn into Yelp reviews and #hiring turn into a hashtag on Twitter. The one thing that has not changed is our desire to be more connected with our community, and to be there for you with the latest news and tips 24/7.

Which is why we’re excited to announce that you can be more connected with HIG than ever before by following us on our new Twitter, Facebook and Google+ pages.

We want to act as a resource for you and your family by making sure you’re able to make the most informed decisions about your insurance coverage. We’ll be sharing the latest news and information about auto insurance, coastal property insurance, business insurance and more, as well as news from the industry that we think is important for you to know. Whether it’s a new law on windshield wipers (#MALightLaw) or the latest #cybersecurity breach and how it could have been avoided, we’ll make sure you know first.

We’ll also be updating you on what we’re doing here at HIG through these channels. Following us will give you an inside look at our experienced staff, as well as our latest blog posts, company news and up-to-date information on the services we provide. We’re here to help.

Most importantly, we want our social media presence to bring us closer to you. HIG is a part of the local community, and we hope these new lines of communication will better connect us to the topics you care about in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Share what you’re reading with us, what you’re interested in and what you need help with. Whether it’s a specific customer service issue or a general insurance question—we’re here, and we’re listening.

We’re looking forward to getting this two-way conversation rolling. Remember to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Google+—it’s time to connect.
