CANCELED – Homeowners Insurance & You: Bring Your Questions!

CANCELED – Homeowners Insurance & You: Bring Your Questions! In-Person

3/13/23 Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been canceled.

Stop by KCPL's Chestertown Branch to visit with a representative from the People's Insurance Counsel Division (PICD) of the Office of the Attorney General of Maryland, and ask all your questions about your rights as a consumer of homeowner's insurance.

The People's Insurance Counsel Division (PICD) represents the interests of Maryland Homeowners and Medical Professionals. We are located in the Maryland Office of the Attorney General. While the Division cannot provide legal representation for individual consumers, PICD protects insurance consumers by:

  • Discussing insurance problems with consumers to answer questions and explain the process available in Maryland for review of complaints.
  • Reviewing complaints filed with the Maryland Insurance Administration to identify patterns in insurance practices that point to larger issues.
  • Writing brochures to explain difficult insurance topics that affect consumers.
  • Reviewing insurance company rate filings to make sure that insurance rates are supported by data and are not excessive.
  • Reviewing insurance company filings of policy forms and rules to determine consistency with Maryland legal requirements and impact on consumers.
  • Reviewing proposed legislation affecting consumers and representing consumer interests before the Maryland General Assembly.
  • Proposing legislation to strengthen consumer protection laws.
  • Alerting consumers to changes in Maryland that may affect them.
  • Working with community organizations to bring insurance information to consumer

PICD is a legislatively mandated division concerning homeowner's insurance and medical professional liability insurance. For more information: https://www.marylandattorneygeneral.gov/Pages/PIC/picho.aspx
