Consumers can contact the department with questions and complaints about their home and auto insurance. If you do not receive the service you expect from your insurer, you can file a complaint directly with the Department of Insurance. The state of Mississippi does not publish complaint data for consumers to use when making purchase decisions.

The insurance commissioner in the state of Mississippi 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.
