Did you ever wonder what the California Department of Insurance does? Me too! So I went to their website to see what was there.
Seriously, the Department of Insurance does a lot of good work. They regulate insurance companies. They regulate insurance agents and brokers. They look into insurance fraud. But, they also provide information for consumers.
First, they provide a useful series of guides that explain insurance. There is everything from auto insurance to homeowners insurance to information for seniors. This is worth looking at by itself!
Second, you can find information about consumer complaints. You can also find a market conduct report that the Department of Insurance publishes. Now you can see which insurance companies generate the most complaints.
Then, do you know what to know if you are paying too much for insurance? Check the premium comparison tool.
And, of course, you can look up information on your insurance agent and your insurance company. The handy licensee check is here.
If you are a California consumer concerned about insurance, take a few minutes to review the Department of Insurance website.
