Insurance Broker Settles

May 23rd, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Dozens of local governments will benefit from a four million dollar settlement reached by state with insurance broker Aon. The company is alleged to have been paid commissions for directing business to certain companies which were not always in the best interests of the local governments. Sandi Copes of the Attorney Generals office says local government will share two point six million dollars.

The insurance brokers might have been steering some policies towards other places that they really should have been going…and the bottom line was corporate entities and public entities might have been paying more for their premiums then they needed to, ” says Copes. “So when we discovered these allegations we worked with the company, and we believe that through the new disclosures they have to file that there will be a larger area of transparency.

1.4 million of the four million dollar settlement will go to state government to cover the costs of the investigation.
