Item 8.01. Other Events.

On October 7, 2013, American Security Insurance Company, a subsidiary of Assurant, Inc., reached agreement with the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation to file for a 10 percent reduction in lender-placed hazard insurance rates in that state.

The rate reduction reflects recent experience in Florida. Once filed and approved, these rates are expected to be effective for new and renewing policies starting in first quarter 2014.

American Security Insurance Company also agreed to modify certain practices, including elimination of commissions and client quota-share reinsurance arrangements, to meet new requirements of providers of lender-placed insurance in Florida. These new lender-placed practices are expected to take effect in Florida one year following the agreement.

American Security Insurance Company recorded $510 million of direct earned premiums and $372 million in net earned premiums before catastrophe reinsurance costs in Florida in 2012.

A copy of Assurant, Inc.'s October 8, 2013 news release announcing this agreement and a copy of the Consent Order are attached as Exhibit 99.1 and 99.2, respectively, and incorporated herein by reference.
