Will my insurance company be able to pay my claim when I have one? This fact-filled practical consumer's guide, which will be published annually, takes the confusion and mystery out of insurance ratings by focusing on financial stability and operations of more than 3,000 companies. In-depth ratings will help consumers assess for themselves whether a particular insurance company has the financial wherewithal to perform when needed.
The trusted, respected name of Standard & Poor's (S & P) lends credence to these ratings. The 300 entries in Part 1 include rating, related ratings, holding company, state where headquartered, states in which it is licensed, rationale (including a unique "claims-paying ability" rating), and a five-year financial performance chart on major firms. Part 2 is simply S & P's ratings on 3,000 companies arranged alphabetically. This section covers "qualified solvency ratings," which include three categories of financial strength based on publicly available information.
Additionally, in the introduction, S & P offers users free consumer updates available by calling their Rating Information Department. Also here the rating definitions are discussed in detail in easy-to-understand terms. All public libraries and business collections will want to add this valuable new resource. The various Best's Insurance Reports (e.g., Life-Health, Property-Casualty) cover thousands of companies but are much more expensive.
