There's Strength in Numbers
For more than 100 years, NICB has partnered with the insurance industry, law enforcement and others to identify opportunities for battling insurance crime. We currently have more than 1,100 member property-casualty insurance companies, who collectively wrote in excess of $436 billion in premiums in 2016. Our members represent 94 percent of the nation’s personal auto insurance premiums and 79 percent of all property-casualty insurance premiums.
Member Engagement = Greater Member Value
Greater utilization of NICB services leads to more powerful results in fighting insurance crime and a higher return on NICB investment for members. Working with our staff, NICB membership directors conduct ongoing outreach efforts to boost awareness of all member benefits and services and encourage our members to take full advantage of all that NICB has to offer.
Together with NICB staff from each of our core functions, our membership directors arrange valuable one-on-one meetings with member companies to help analyze their fraud-fighting needs, review their use of NICB products and services, and ensure appropriate ongoing follow-up.
Membership Satisfaction is Key to Our Success
To ensure that we are staying true to our mission and meeting our members’ needs, NICB conducts periodic member satisfaction surveys that solicit in-depth feedback and suggestions. NICB staff follows up personally with individuals who include contact information to let them know we are listening and welcome their comments.
