Correct Responding Party? Avoid Unnecessary Filing Fees
We have noticed instances with filers selecting the incorrect responding company. Before selecting a responding party, please confirm the selection you are making is the correct party. Filings are often submitted against an incorrect carrier due to similar names. This causes the filing to be withdrawn and resubmitted, which adds an extra filing fee, as well as a delay in resolving the dispute.
For clarification, please see below for a few examples:
- Farmers Mutual Insurance Company (04590-0002) is not affiliated with the Farmers Insurance Group (00125).
- Enterprise (01520) being named instead of Rental Claims Services (05199), its liability group.
- Founders Insurance Company (NJ) (00167-0003) is a separate entity from Founders Insurance (part of the Utica National Insurance Group ).
