What have we been up to? Apr 26, 2022 »

2022 has been a great year so far at Block! Here is what we have been up to...

We started off the year celebrating National Pharmacy Day. Some of us hit the road and visited some of our local pharmacies to say THANK YOU! They have had a crazy couple of years and deserved a little celebrating. We also couldn't let the month pass without celebrating 'National Have Fun at Work Day'.. we had a cornhole tournament in the hallway at the Paragould office! Crazy team names, trash talk and fun all…

Grain Bin Safety Week Feb 20, 2022 »

As the 2022 growing season gets started, agriculture faces a potentially challenging year. Volatile markets, supply chain problems and labor shortage are all major issues farmers and agribusiness workers will face at any given time this year. With all of this going on, farmers will have busy minds, and when that’s the case, its easy to be distracted. And when you’re distracted, accidents can happen. That comes true especially when working in grain bins. One slip or bad step can have…

How can I save on group health insurance? Jan 19, 2022 »

With costs skyrocketing, most people want to save on the group health insurance plan, but unfortunately, no one knows how to do it. When it comes to saving on your group health plan, one word matters most….. DATA. Do you know your data? Not knowing your data is the equivalent of taking a cross-country trip with no GPS. Most groups do not know their data, so they do not know what decisions to make about their plan. Healthcare for most employers is the second largest expense, but something…

How do I cut my healthcare costs? Jan 05, 2022 »

After the holiday rush, and heading into the new year, there are a few guarantees:

  1. Resolutions will be broken

  2. The first work week back will be hectic

  3. Money will be tight after all the holiday spending

Unfortunately, with the New Year comes many people’s deductible phase with their healthcare insurance. This means even more out-of-pocket expense, following the spending frenzy of December. With healthcare costs rising and copays for pharmaceuticals increasing every…

Happy Holidays and Cyber Attacks Dec 06, 2021 »

At Block Insurance, we are looking forward to this year’s Christmas and New Year holiday season. Time with family…and the time away from the office…is always necessary to reconnect and recharge heading into the new year.

However, the FBI and CISA have noticed a disturbing trend associated with time away from work. In 2021 cyber crime has spiked on holidays, as cyber-criminals see the time away from the office as primetime for an attack. With network defenders and local IT…

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from a Cyber-Attack Oct 12, 2021 »

Our house sits in a subdivision on the north side of Paragould, AR. The reason we wanted to build there was because of the large field behind the house. Our boys play wiffle ball, frisbee golf, and football out there during the warmer months. Behind the playing area is a patch of natural blackberry bushes. The first summer we lived in the house, I noticed them and went out to pick a few. Like a rookie, I wore shorts and sandals and went out with bare hands. The next day I was covered in…

Cyber Security Month Oct 07, 2021 »

On this day, October 7th in 1849, American author Edgar Allan Poe died in Baltimore, MD at the far-too-young age of 40. Poe was famous for his gothic short stories, making his death in the same month as Halloween almost poetic. In one of his short stories, “The Pit and the Pendulum” the main character finds himself held captive, tied to a board in the middle of a large room. Above him, a large, razor-sharp pendulum is swinging back and forth while descending from the ceiling. The…

At Block, we are using this week to go out to the area truck stops with goody bags and a smiling face to just say ‘THANK YOU’ to the truck drivers.

What is Builders Risk? Sep 09, 2021 »

One of the questions we got this week at the office was does my homeowners cover me if I am building a new house? The answer is no, unfortunately. There is a specific policy you will need when building a new home, and that is a Builder's Risk policy. I thought this might be a good time to do a little Q&A to explain the ins and outs of a builder's risk policy. As always, it is best to consult a licensed agent to get exact coverage information.

What is Cyber Insurance, and do I really need it? Aug 26, 2021 »

Imagine for a second that you are a nurse at a local, privately owned medical clinic. You wake up on a normal Thursday, go through your morning routine, and head to the clinic. Coffee in hand, you unlock the back door and start turning on the lights. As you drop your purse at your station, your mind starts running through your daily to-do list. Things that didn’t quite get finished yesterday…patients coming in today… I need to run by the grocery at lunch to grab bread for the…

What are the most common car insurance discounts? Aug 17, 2021 »

Saving money is at the forefront of our minds these days. We look for places to trim and cut back wherever possible, and that often means making hard decisions. Of course, there are certain things that many of us can't go without - like a vehicle and auto insurance to protect it. But just because these things are a necessity doesn't mean we can't find ways to reduce the cash we spend on them. That's why it's important to consider every possible discount when shopping for auto insurance - but…

10 Most Most Common Types of Business Insurance Claims Sep 24, 2020 »

No one plans to sustain any losses or file a claim when they purchase their insurance policies and most look at insurance as protection against extraordinary events. BUT unfortunately losses occur more frequently than most business owners expect. According to a study by The Hartford, 40% of small businesses will have a property or liability loss within a 10-year period.
