Insurance Fraud affects all Michigan residents

Did you know?

  • It is estimated that one out of every 10 auto claims is fraudulent. In Michigan, that translates into about $400 million annually.
  • One in six people in Michigan say they know someone who has committed insurance fraud.
  • Insurance fraud is estimated to cost Michigan residents at least $100 per person a year.
  • The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) reports that questionable auto insurance claims have risen in Michigan over the last five years by 200%.
  • Insurance Fraud is a felony. Unfortunately, local law enforcement do not have the resources to convict these crimes.
  • There is a solution. Michigan House Bill 5701 would provide resources to law enforcement to combat this costly crime.
