State Insurance Regulators

 

State Insurance Regulators

Each state has its own laws and regulations for all types of insurance, including car, homeowner and health insurance. The officials listed below enforce these laws. Many of these offices can provide you with information to help you make informed insurance buying decisions. Your local library also has information that can help you compare insurance companies before making a purchase.

If you have a question or complaint about your insurance company's policies, contact the company before you contact the state insurance regulator.

We also offer the Handbook's list of State Banking Regulators.

    How to Find Better Business Bureaus

    Better Business Bureaus (BBBs) are nonprofit organizations supported primarily by local business members. The focus of BBB activities is to promote an ethical marketplace by encouraging honest advertising and selling practices, and by providing alternative dispute resolution. BBBs offer a variety of consumer services. For example, they provide consumer education materials; answer consumer questions; provide information about a business, particularly whether or not there are unanswered or unsettled complaints or other marketplace problems; help resolve buyer/seller complaints against a business; including mediation and arbitration services; and provide information about charities and other organizations that are seeking public donations.
