File a Complaint
Filing a Complaint Regarding Your Insurance in Oregon

Rarely should you reach the point where you must file a complaint with a government agency. Insurance agents and companies must abide by certain laws and guidelines. Consumers and policyholders must also follow rules and comply with contractual obligations. Your time is worth something. If you feel you have been wronged in the handling of a claim, charging of a premium or processing of a policy, talk to your adjuster, agent or customer service representative first.

A simple phone call or email to the company or agent can often resolve an issue. The hard part is finding the right person to talk to. Your agent can help direct you to the right department or person. Contact your agent and have him or her stay on the line with you until the right person is found. It will always be easier to try to resolve a problem before it builds.

Should you not resolve an issue with the person responsible for handling your policy or claim, ask to speak with a manager or supervisor. Insurance companies really don't like problems to go beyond their offices. A manager can help guide a claims or customer service representative to complete a task. The reputation of the company and the agency are at stake. We really do want a satisfied customer.

After you have exhausted all other means of resolving a problem, you can contact the Department of Consumer and Business Services, Insurance Division. This is an Oregon government agency specifically set up to regulate the insurance industry. It is responsible for licensing insurance companies and insurance agents. It also oversees their activities and enforces laws and rules pertaining to the transaction of insurance in the State of Oregon.

Here is a little more information about them:

Do you want to complain to the State Insurance Department?
