World Insurance has and exclusive program for Members  which will pay the rent directly to the Landlord in the event that an enrolled Tenant involuntarily loses their job or becomes disabled and unable to work.

 Recent events have shown just how fragile the job market really is, and how exposed many Americans are to sudden job loss. Recent articles in the Wall Street Journal have highlighted the uncertainty that Landlords face in this climate of unprecedented unemployment. I just heard on this morning’s news that another 2 million plus people lost their jobs in May! Since most of a Tenant’s income goes to housing expenses, Landlords are exposed to significant loss of revenue in a down economy.

The Pensio Tenant Rent Guarantee Program is designed to address this exposure. When a Tenant is enrolled in our Program , Pensio will pay the rent directly to the Landlord in the event that the enrolled Tenant involuntarily loses their job or becomes disabled and cannot work. The Program is offered at terms of 3,6 or 12 months of coverage, and can be purchased by the Landlord on behalf of the Tenants, or by the Tenants themselves.
