The use of credit and insurance scores in the insurance industry:
Insurance companies use credit reports, along with an insurance score, to accurately calculate risk. Studies have shown a correlation between the financial history of a person and his/her future insurance loss potential. As a result, insurance companies incorporate the use of insurance scores in their pricing and underwriting to enable them to offer insurance coverage to more consumers at a fair cost.
If you have been adversely affected by your credit information, the Consumer Reporting Agency that provided it shall, upon your request, clearly and accurately disclose to you all information in your file at the time of your request. However, the FCRA does not require a Consumer Reporting Agency to disclose to a consumer any information concerning insurance scores to the consumer.
