FLORENCE, S.C. -- Assurant is one of the largest employers in Florence with more than 1,300 employees at its location on Celebration Boulevard.

Since 2004, the company has added more than 1,000 employees in Florence and expanded the services provided by the center, which manages insurance-related services for some of the nation’s largest mortgage lenders.

A Fortune 500 company, Assurant is a global provider of risk management solutions, protecting and securing the places people live and the things they buy. The company helps keep life running smoothly for more than 300 million people around the world, protecting 38 million mobile devices, 40 million motor vehicles, 80 million appliances, and 36 million mortgages.

Assurant’s Florence team serves as a partner to the company’s mortgage lender clients and protects homeowners and lenders from loss when there’s a lapse in insurance coverage on a mortgaged home. Homeowners insurance is a requirement of mortgage agreements. If a consumer allows their homeowner's insurance coverage to lapse, Assurant’s lender-placed insurance serves as a safety net, ensuring that the lender’s investment and people’s homes are protected in case of fire, flood, hurricane or another disaster. The company also helps manage the claims process, so homeowners can get funds quickly to repair their homes after they make an insurance claim.

Customer service is the focus of the Assurant Florence team, and currently, they are in the midst of a multi-year upgrade to a new user-friendly web-based solution that will provide all customer policy and loan information in one location. The new system significantly improves the customer experience. Also, the Assurant Florence office is implementing a new system that streamlines the claims process, speeding up the time it takes for a homeowner to get the funds they need to begin work on their homes.

Assurant is a proud member of the Florence community and has been actively involved and a supporter of the United Way, McLeod Health, the Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce, the Pee Dee Heart Ball, the Florence Area Literacy Council and the Florence Family YMCA. Currently, Assurant is building a house in the area with Habitat for Humanity, its third local home and one of approximately 40 it has built companywide. In addition, Assurant is a presenting sponsor of Relay for Life in Florence.
