Delaware Insurance Laws and Regulations
The Delaware Department of Insurance develops and enforces the insurance laws. Delaware does not publish either the raw or compiled results of the complaints filed for consumers to use when buying home or auto insurance. Consumers can contact the department with questions and complaints, or questions on their auto and home insurance. Consumers not receiving the service they expect from an insurer can file a complaint directly with the Department of Insurance.
The insurance commissioner in the state of Delaware is elected by the voters of the state. Being elected by voters makes the commissioner directly accountable to the citizens. This is beneficial to consumers when dissatisfied with the performance of an insurance company.
