Gauging an insurance company

Before buying with a company it is wise to check on a company's financial strength and complaint record. The A.M. Best rating listed above gives you an idea of AIG's financial strength to pay claims. A complaint ratio can be found on the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) site. The median complaint ratio from the NAIC is always 1.00. This means half of the insurers have a complaint ratio of under 1.00 and half have a ratio above. Basically, numbers lower than 1.00 are better with fewer complaints than the median and a number higher than 1.00 has more complaints than the median. For home insurance, AIG (NAIC# 19402) had a complaint ratio of 0.12 for 2018. 2019 complaint numbers will be available in 2020.

Company Background

A global leader

Most successful American insurance companies started off small in one of the 50 states, and then later branched out into other countries. AIG actually began in Shanghai, China, in 1919, by a young American entrepreneur, Cornelius Vander Starr – and then later, in 1939, with World War II looming, Starr would move his company to America (specifically, New York City, where its headquarters is today).

AIG started out as a general insurance company in Shanghai, but it quickly expanded into selling products like life insurance. Today, AIG is located in over 130 countries and is ranked as the number one commercial insurer in the United States and Canada. In addition, AIG companies are leading providers of retirement services, financial services and asset management around the world.

AIG homeowners programs
