Welcome,

Citizens' Agents!

It’s been a busy year at Slide and we are excited to round out the year with participation in Citizens' Depopulation ("Depop") Programs.

It's an honor to work with you as we help our new policyholders make the move to Slide!

We've got great news!

The depop process is simple and hassle-free with no applications, inspections, or underwriting. No action on your client’s part is required.

Many new Slide policyholders can also avoid any extra costs from Citizens' upcoming flood coverage requirement. Once with Slide, your clients will have access to a wide range of coverage options tailored to their unique needs.

Check your inbox for news on policy selection, onboarding instructions, and the Slide Insurance Citizens Depopulation Webinar.

We aim to make this transition as seamless as possible for both you and your clients.

While Slide may be a new name, we know insurance. We were founded in 2021 in Tampa, FL, by industry veterans who understand the Florida market. Our leadership team has participated in over 30 Citizens' depopulation programs.

Let's answer your questions.

  • A Nonrenewal activity will show in the Citizens PolicyCenter.

What happens on the policy assumption date?

  • All policies will remain on the Citizens PolicyCenter, at their current Citizens rate, with their current coverage and maintain their original policy period. The change is the carrier assuming responsibility in the event of a claim.

  • Once renewed, the policy will be accessed and managed in Slide’s system.

What if an insured accepted the assumption offer but was not assumed?

How do I get the ability to quote and bind new policies?
