The FBI estimates that insurance fraud costs people and businesses over $30 billion per year1. Because fraud can affect everyone, Allstate works to fight it. With a team of fraud investigators and special investigation units (SIU), Allstate partners with law enforcement and regulatory agencies to assist in the investigation and possible prosecution of criminals who push up the cost of insurance premiums.
The cost of fraudulent payouts is passed on to everyone who purchases insurance. You can educate yourself about the different types of fraud and learn how to help protect yourself from fraud. Taking a little time to understand insurance fraud can help stop these types of crimes.
If you become aware of insurance fraud, call 1-800-TEL-NICB to report it. You can anonymously report fraud and help keep your insurance premiums from going up.
