Michigan residents are now being urged to learn more about home and auto insurance coverage through radio announcements by the Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation (OFIR). The OFIR has taken this bold and proactive step to educate consumers all over the state on the importance of insurance and to provide valuable information about the best and most affordable rates in the state. Public service announcements (PSAs) are an affective way of disseminating information because they are heard all over the state in all workplaces and in vehicles as one drives along.The OFIR hopes to reach all drivers and homeowners through the PSAs. The message being relayed is specifically about how consumers can use OFIR’s resources to access the best and cost effective insurance coverage.
The OFIR Commissioner, Kevin Clinton, talked about the differences in premiums while releasing the PSR announcements. He ascribed the difference in auto & homeowners insurance rates being a result of differences between companies and between different types of coverage which makes it imperative for consumers throughout the state to make good use of the all the available tools before buying insurance coverage. The OFIR website, he further stated, contains all the necessary resources anyone in the state would need while shopping for homeowners or auto insurance. Consumers can easily use insurance guides, complaint ratios, and every other nugget of information to determine which company and type of coverage suits their needs and budget. All insurance companies and agencies registered to operate in Michigan are listed in the OFIR website.
The OFIR is dedicated to reach all consumers in the state with critical advice on how to get the best quotes and on identifying insurance companies with a solid base and a good claims payment history. This comes at a time when entire nation is currently experiencing a rise in homeowners insurance as a result of increased tornadoes and thunderstorms in most parts of the country.
