One of the most unbiased ways to measure a company’s reputation is through the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) Complaint Index. The index rates a company based on complaints per market share and premiums. This index sets the median at 1, a score that indicates the expected number of complaints a company should receive based on its size.
Companies that have a ratio higher than 1 have more complaints than expected while those under 1 have fewer complaints. The lower the score, the better the company’s reputation is. It’s that simple.
People’s Trust Insurance has a complaint score of 3.42 after receiving 56 formal complaints in 2019. That means People’s Trust had more than three times the expected number of complaints than its competitors for its $173 million in premiums.
Kin, by contrast, has a complaint score of 0.
Florida has some of the highest home insurance costs in the nation. For many homeowners, finding reliable, affordable coverage has been a real challenge.
While People's Trust does offer reliable coverage, its rates are steeper than other carriers. For a newly built home valued at $300,000, People’s Trust's annual average premium is $2,479 a year.
That's 83 percent more expensive than Kin's average of $1,354 a year.
