WSSC Now Offers Water/Sewer Line Repair Plans

Over the past couple weeks the Village office has received inquiries, in addition to postings on the Village listserv regarding a letter individual homeowners received from Homeserve USA, a company affiliated with WSSC, offering an insurance program. Residents should be aware that the mailer and program advertised are valid.

Below please find an explanation of the new program from the WSSC website:

"We are pleased to announce a new program for WSSC homeowner customers offering optional repair service plans available through HomeServe. The plans provide affordable protection from the cost and inconvenience of household plumbing repairs, including water service line leaks, sewer line blockages or breaks and in-home plumbing issues.

Many customers are frustrated when they discover a leaking or blocked service line and then learn that this piping is their responsibility to fix. Many are also unaware that these types of repairs are not covered by basic homeowner’s insurance policies. WSSC recognized that one way it could help is to offer an optional service program that would help residents faced with a costly repair. WSSC and HomeServe have worked together in creating this program to ensure it is worthy of WSSC’s endorsement.

Beginning in July residents will receive an introductory mailing about the optional repair plans available through HomeServe. Residents can also learn more about these optional plans as well as HomeServe by visiting the website or calling toll-free 1-844-713-7208 for more information."

It is recommended that that before residents opt for the coverage offered through WSSC/HomeServe USA to contact their homeowners insurance company first because often you may already be covered for this occurrence or you may be able to select the coverage as an add-on to your policy.

If customers have additional questions or concerns about the collaboration agreement in general, residents can contact WSSC Customer Service Center on 301-206-4001 for further information.
