AUTO INSURANCE RATINGS METHODOLOGY
Ratings are based on weighted averages of scores in several categories, including financial strength, consumer complaints, website transparency, and affordability. Using our editorial discretion, we also consider customer satisfaction surveys. These ratings are a guide, but we encourage you to shop around and compare several insurance quotes to find the best rate for you. .
METHODOLOGY: INSURER COMPLAINTS
AuthenticReviews examined complaints received by state insurance regulators and reported to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners in 2016-2018. To assess how insurers compare to one another, the NAIC calculates a complaint index each year for each subsidiary, measuring its share of total complaints relative to its size, or share of total premiums in the industry. To evaluate a company’s complaint history, calculated a similar index for each insurer, weighted by the market shares of each subsidiary, over the three-year period. Ratios are determined separately for auto, home (including renters and condo), and life insurance.
