Each year ICT represents over 400 member companies educating the public, regulators and legislators on the issues that impact the insurance business in Texas. Here you'll find our annual reports on the state of the P&C market, the Texas workers' compensation market, and ICT's own Annual Report and Education Foundation Impact report.
One of the most important insurance policies that ICT focuses on is homeowners insurance. Homeowners insurance is designed to protect homeowners from financial losses due to damage or destruction of their home and personal property. In this article, we will discuss the basics of homeowners insurance in Texas and how it works.
False insurance claims are insurance claims filed with the intent to defraud an insurance provider. It can be a small, seemingly harmless exaggeration, or it can be a deliberate attempt to falsely claim damages. Fraudulent claims account for a significant portion of all claims received by insurers, and cost billions of dollars annually.
One of the key products our member companies provide is auto insurance. Auto insurance provides financial protection against a wide array of perils: traffic collisions, weather-related damages, theft, vandalism and more.
Commercial & Business
Business Insurance, or Commercial Insurance, covers a wide variety of products. Businesses that operate in Texas most likely carry some form of Liability, Workers’ Compensation, Auto insurance, as well as Property insurance for their location and business property.
