Mt. Washington Expands Home Insurance Choices for New Hampshire Homeowners

New Discounts and More Coverage Options Bring Great Values

CONCORD, NH--(Marketwire - May 8, 2008) - Mt. Washington Assurance Corporation introduced its newest home insurance programs this week in a series of meetings with independent insurance agents who represent the company for home and auto insurance.

"New Hampshire consumers asked for broader coverage for identity-theft resolution, credit-card fraud, and personal property protection, and we've responded with the Mt. Washington Peak Protection Program, which also includes guaranteed replacement cost on the home," said Rich Middleton, New Hampshire General Manager. "The Peak Protection Program offers a comprehensive level of protection that is very competitively priced for homes valued up to a million dollars."

In addition to the coverage increases in the Peak Protection Program, expanded coverage and new discounts are available with the Summit Protection Program and the Standard Protection Program. New or increased discounts are available for new homes, superior construction, alarm systems, companion auto policies and loss-free experience in each program.

Program changes are effective May 15, 2008 for new business and July 1, 2008 for renewals and are now available via real-time price quotes through Mt. Washington's statewide network of local independent agents. Consumers can locate a Mt. Washington agent by visiting
