Free consumer insurance resource

SPRINGFIELD, Ill.—The Illinois Insurance Hotline is a free resource that can help consumers with their insurance questions, according to State Sen. Brad Burzynski (R-Sycamore).

Burzynski says the hotline does not sell insurance, but provides unbiased information to help consumers make educated decisions about insurance issues.

Common questions answered by the hotline include ratings and complaints for specific insurance companies, whether you need replacement coverage on your home and belongings, required auto liability limits, option when a policy is not renewed, and information about health insurance following a layoff.

The hotline is an industry-sponsored service operated by the Illinois Insurance Information Service since 1990, helping an estimated 10,000 consumers each year. The toll-free number, 1-800-444-3338, is available from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
