CRV is one of only three agencies chosen by PURE in Rhode Island.

PURE is dedicated to providing property & casualty insurance to successful, responsible homeowners.   PURE's focus in RI is the high-valued home with a replacement cost value of $1,000,000 and higher. As a Florida domiciled reciprocal insurance exchange, PURE is unique because it is owned by its members (policyholders). The policies are participating. This means members could receive dividends.

The Beacon Mutual Insurance Company has a new option to pay Workers Compensation premiums in a more simplified, automated process. Premium will be based on payroll data as each pay cycle is processed. This new payment option eliminates the need for a large premium down payment, will help maximize monthly cash flow and minimize the likelihood of year-end premium audit adjustments. The Pay As You Go program uploads payroll data, and the premium for each period is calculated and automatically withdrawn from your bank account.
