I believe that the 'act of war' clause is for property only.  I have also 
heard that many units in the Towers had exclusions for terrorism, because 
of the bombing in '93.

The people who have died will still be covered for Life and I would think 
that stock brokers would have humongous amounts as there was a lot of 
earning power in those buildings.  Throw in the airliners, which would be 
covered normally, along with the problems the reinsurance companies will 
have, the reluctance of any jury in the country to not award damages from 
the insurance companies and I would be extremely stunned if this wasn't the 
highest liability for the insurance companies ever, and maybe a couple 
times higher.  Also, insurance companies are heavily into the stock market 
so that I think that the balance sheet is not looking too good.

I was just told that our next insurance will be, at least, twice what our 
former was.  Last year, when I had family coverage, my share was 
$5,200.  My employer only covers part of the primary, and none for family 
or couples.  I expect all of our insurance costs to increase and, I hope, 
that this will bring about some kind of national 'socialist' 
coverage.  Sorry, I can not afford insurance, this is not a political 
statement but a necessity.
