Life insurance complaint comparison

Every state's insurance department handles complaints against insurers that operate in the state. The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) collects complaint data and produces a complaint ratio. The ratio shows the number of complaints relative to a company's size of business. The industry median ratio is 1.00 and lower numbers are better.

American General was the only life insurance company we surveyed with a complaint ratio that is higher than the industry median. Based on data from the NAIC, many complaints were about cancellation, claims delays, premium notices and billing, coverage questions, and delays or no response in policyholder service.
