Connecticut Insurance Laws and Regulations

The Connecticut Insurance Department develops and enforces the insurance laws. The Connecticut Insurance Department publishes raw complaint data on closed complaints. The raw complaint data found on the Connecticut Insurance Department's website shows a comparison of how many complaints insurance companies that operate in Connecticut have lodged against them. Consumers can contact the department with questions about their auto and home insurance, and to file complaints. If you do not receive the service you expect from an insurer, you can file a complaint directly with the Department of Insurance
