Insurance Commissioners by State

by Jeff Rose

If anything ever goes wrong in dealing with a life insurance company or life insurance agent, you will want to report it immediately. That’s why each state has an Insurance Commissioner to deal with these type of issues. These Insurance Commissioners deal with more than just life insurance though. They deal with all types of insurance claims: auto, home, health, etc.

If you ever feel like your insurance case was not handled properly, we strongly encourage you to contact your state Insurance Commissioners office and explain the situation. Make sure you have all available information before contacting them in making it easier for them to help you.

Here is a list of Insurance Commissioner offices, by state.
