People Power

Helping people get a fair deal from their insurance company is the heart of United Policyholders’ mission. Our tips and tools include strategies for getting insurers to pay benefits quickly and be flexible where appropriate. Strategies based on our volunteers’ savvy and our staff’s expertise.

At our Roadmap to Recovery workshops in disaster areas, we help people organize into “company-specific groups” for mutual support and negotiating power. We’re pleased to end this year with the success story of one such group in Santa Rosa, CA. By working together, 150 people secured their insurer’s agreement to pay contents benefits without requiring detailed itemization.

We’re grateful for the dedicated people engaged in UP’s work who make it possible for us to empower and assist consumers every day.

Here’s to people power, and a happy and healthy new year!
