Under circumstances beyond our control, CCW Safe has to stop or adjust coverage in three states. There are a few states and governors that are changing laws, legislation and insurance regulatory powers to force out companies that defend those involved in self-defense shootings incidents within their states (New York, New Jersey and Washington). These states have prersented emergency orders, legal challenges, regulatory hearings, law suits and cease & desist orders against several of the leading companies in this industry.
This forced our competitors (NRA, USCCA, etc.) and now CCW Safe to comply with the new regulations and requests to stop business in three states. Although, CCW Safe is not an insurance company, and did not (like our competitors) partner with traditional insurance companies to sell insurance policies; we are not going to sell plans to permit holders or gun owners in these state any longer.
You, as voters of your state, have to take up the fight and use your voting powers to get things changed.
New Jersey state residents:
No incidents will be covered for any member within the state of New Jersey even if you are a resident of another state traveling through that state. Memberships are not available in the state of New Jersey. We cannot and will not offer any exceptions although the govenor recently authorized law enforcement officers to be covered no companies were officially authorized to begin sales again (due to pending emergency and cease & desist orders by the office of insurance in that state). CCW Safe competitors were also banned from the state for coverage. HR218 coverage is not available until the legal challenge of the company has been resolved.
Washington state residents:
As of January 1, 2021 NO incidents of self-defense with any weapon shall be covered for CCW Safe members traveling through the state of Washington. CCW Safe, along with all competitors in the industry, were challenged by the insurance regulators in the state in the year 2020. As part of the legal agreement and cease & desist letter no new monies or membership plans shall be renewed or purchased (starting January 1. 2021).
Those members paying monthly shall no longer be able to renew their payments for monthly service. Members paying annually shall be covered up to their renewal date but not allowed to renew services (starting January 1, 2021). In the cancellation of service letter/email CCW safe will present three vetted options for legal representation (to be paid by former members) so that you have the resources to be covered for your legal self-defense incident.
No incidents shall be covered by non-residents from states that have reciprocity with the state of Washington traveling through that state.
New York state Residents:
The state of New York has made moves following their lawsuit against the NRA, to deter and cease the actions of businesses designed to cover their citizens who are forced to defend themselves in a life-threatening attack using firearms. This forced our competitors (NRA, USCCA, etc.) and now CCW Safe to comply with the new regulations and requests to stop business in their state. Although, CCW Safe is not an insurance company, and did not (like our competitors) partner with traditional insurance companies to sell insurance policies; we are not going to sell plans to permit holders or gun owners in that state any longer. CCW Safe no longer cover incidents or sell membership subscriptions for non-law enforcement members in New York state.
Our only exception is those that fall under federal guidelines of the following House Bill (HR218) "Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act" that allows police officers to carry nationally under federal authority. We will only cover law enforcement for their off-duty incidents (similar to the same coverage by state police unions and the National FOP). This coverage shall not extend to the spouses or children, so there will be no home coverage for the family in the state of New York. There are association specific plans for those that are active and retired officers in that state (to include HR218 plan, etc.). Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
