When events cause people and businesses to suffer serious and costly losses and insurance benefits are critically important to recovery, United Policyholders provides guidance and services to facilitate full and prompt claim payouts.  We support policyholders and their advocates in coverage battles and legislative and regulatory initiatives to advance the reasonable expectations and rights of the insured. Our goal is to help every person and entity that has invested in buying insurance to get the full value of that investment and recover all benefits owed after adversity has struck.

The United Policyholders volunteer corps includes the nation’s leading attorneys and professionals specializing in representing insured individuals and businesses.  For our COVID-19 Loss Recovery library and related initiatives we have assembled an outstanding team of expert advisors to help stay on the cutting edge of the political and legal developments.

We thank and acknowledge the Find Help sponsors, donors and volunteers that support our ongoing work, and the following for their dedication and service to empowering the insured to recover from COVID-19 losses:
