In today's global economy, a growing number of large multinational companies are sending employees across cities, states, countries and continents in order to meet specific job needs in different locations. Specific projects may require employees and their families to pack up and relocate for anywhere from a few months, a few years, or even permanently. In Texas, there are a large number of multinational companies such as BP, Shell, Exxon/Mobil, Citgo, Chase Bank, Anadarko, and Hewlett-Packard that frequently have their employees relocate to their Houston offices, so there are many workers and their families from other states, countries and continents that must get quickly settled into life in Houston.
For many of these employees, a job transfer is often facilitated by a corporate relocation service, where the employee receives assistance with finding a new home, moving and travel arrangements, and getting information on utilities and local points of interest. However, one critical piece of information often not passed along to workers relocating to Houston is in regards to insurance. Employees transferring to Houston will be in need of auto insurance since Houston's size and sprawl make a vehicle a necessity. In addition, employees relocating to Houston will also need homeowner's insurance if purchasing a home, or renter's insurance if renting an apartment or townhome during their stay. Finally, whether relocating from out of state, out of the country or from another continent, it is critical to have ample life insurance in the event of an accident or death.
Some relocation services utilized by large multinational companies do occasionally make recommendations for insurance providers, but relocated employees get little to no choice regarding the insurance provider, and will likely not get the best rates, coverage or policy that they could if they had the benefit of additional insurance options. In addition, employees transferred from international locations may be rushed into inadequate or unfavorable insurance policies without a full explanation or understanding of their policy exclusions, restrictions or other key insurance details.
