Chubb Insurance Review: AM Best, JD Power Ratings & Auto & Home Insurance Customer Complaint Record

This Chubb Insurance review will evaluate, for the most recent six year period where reliable statistics are available (2009-2014), the home & auto insurance complaint ratings for the subsidiary companies of Chubb insurance, to determine whether each subsidiary, such as Federal Insurance Company or Great Northern Insurance Company, has a better-than-average, average, or worse-than-average customer complaint record.

In addition to reviewing & rating its most recent six year complaint record, I’ll analyze the change in the JD Power home & auto insurance scores & ratings for Chubb insurance over the last few years, and compare them to the scores of leading competitors, like State Farm, Allstate, Farmers, Progressive, & GEICO. I’ll review the AM Best Financial Strength ratings for the Chubb subsidiaries, too.

Chubb Auto & Homeowners Insurance Review

Chubb is not a well-known brand among the general public, but it has a great reputation among independent insurance agents. Chubb specializes in selling auto & home insurance to meet the needs of high net worth individuals and families. Chubb sells its auto & home insurance through independent insurance agents located in communities throughout the USA.

Chubb was recently purchased by ACE Insurance Group, and will be adopting the Chubb name. I reviewed the auto & home insurance customer complaint record for ACE in this blog post here.

This Chubb review is divided into four sections, considering its: 1. AM Best Financial Strength Ratings 2. JD Power insurance customer & claims satisfaction scores & ratings for Chubb compared to competing companies 3. auto & homeowners insurance customer complaint record over the last five years, and 4. A review summary.

1. AM Best Financial Strength Rating for the Chubb companies

The Chubb companies (Chubb Custom Insurance Company, Chubb Indemnity Insurance Company, Chubb Insurance Company of New Jersey, Chubb Lloyds Insurance Company of Texas, Chubb National Insurance Company, Executive Risk Indemnity Inc, Executive Risk Specialty Insurance Company, Federal Insurance Company, Great Northern Insurance Company, Pacific Indemnity Company, Texas Pacific Indemnity Company, and Vigilant Insurance Company) had their A++ (Superior) AM Best Financial Strength Rating affirmed on 04/16/2015, but due to its recent acquisition by ACE Insurance, its rating is under review as of 7/2/2015 with a negative financial outlook (a ratings downgrade is possible in the near future). A++ is the highest rating for AM Best. I become concerned with any car or homeowners insurance company or subsidiary with less than an A- rating for financial strength from AM Best.

AM Best financial strength ratings are not a measure of customer service or the quality of the claims adjusting for any of the Chubb companies, but an opinion about their ability to pay claims, remain financially solvent, and stay in business. I recommend avoiding, if possible or practical, any auto or homeowners insurance company with lower than an “A-” rating for financial strength from AM Best. Some major auto & home insurance companies have slightly lower financial strength ratings than the Chubb companies, but the difference in financial strength among A++, A+, A, & A- rated companies is not significant to me unless higher rated companies are the same or better in terms of price, coverage, claims handling, and customer service.

2. Chubb JD Power Auto & Home Insurance Ratings for 2012, 2013, 2014, & 2015

3. Chubb Auto & Homeowners Insurance Complaint Statistics & Ratings

You may really like your auto or home insurance company, or you may have heard from family members or friends about the insurance companies they think are best, but you never really know how good your insurance company is, until you have a serious claim. The good news is many insurance companies settle a good portion of their claims in a manner acceptable to the majority of their customers. However, the wise consumer should avoid insurance companies with a worse than average history of auto or home insurance complaints.

A measure of quality for an auto or home insurance company is the number of upheld complaints filed against it with a state’s insurance regulatory authority, adjusted for the company’s market share. This section of the review will show you if Chubb auto & home insurance has a better-than-average, average, or below-average complaint record for 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, & 2014. This section of my Chubb Insurance review provides valuable information to help you decide if Chubb is best for you. By choosing a company with a better-than-average complaint history, or at least avoiding companies with consistent, worse-than-average complaint records, you decrease the likelihood you will have a negative experience, when you need your auto or home insurance company.

Chubb has 12 U.S. subsidiary companies, Chubb Custom Insurance Company, Chubb Indemnity Insurance Company, Chubb Insurance Company of New Jersey, Chubb Lloyds Insurance Company of Texas, Chubb National Insurance Company, Executive Risk Indemnity Inc, Executive Risk Specialty Insurance Company, Federal Insurance Company, Great Northern Insurance Company, Pacific Indemnity Company, Texas Pacific Indemnity Company, and Vigilant Insurance Company, licensed in the states where the company sells insurance, which is most of the 50 U.S. states. The use of more than one auto or home insurance subsidiary company is usually to offer different pricing, or operate in a certain US state or group of states. Different subsidiaries can be used to offer specific pricing for certain market segments, such as drivers with lower or higher risk profiles (For example, drivers with a clean driving record vs. drivers with tickets and accidents), or certain occupations and employers, such as teachers or government employees, or to insure certain types of vehicles or residences, such as mobile homes, motorcycles, or motorhomes.

The following three subsidiaries are too small to review or do not currently insure homes or personal use vehicles:

Executive Risk Indemnity Inc. had no auto or home insurance policies in force in 2014 (and had only $1,437 US auto insurance premium in 2012). Executive Risk Specialty Insurance Company sells commercial insurance only, and has no auto or home insurance policies in force. Texas Pacific Indemnity Company also has no home insurance policies in force, and only $869,804 in US auto insurance premium in 2014, up very slightly from $846,243 US auto insurance premium in 2012.

The most common reasons, for people to file auto & home insurance complaints with a state insurance department against insurance companies, are for delays in a claim payment, unsatisfactory payment of a claim, and denial of a claim. The complaint statistics used in this review are the number of upheld complaints filed against the Chubb companies with a state’s insurance regulatory authority, adjusted for the company’s market share, as determined by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). Complaint ratios lower than “1” have less complaints than average, and complaint ratios over “1” have more complaints than average. The lower the complaint ratio, the less complaints against the company. Ideally, you want to choose an insurance company with complaint ratios much less than 1.00 each year, over the last five years.

So you don’t have to worry about comparing complaint ratio numbers, I devised a rating system to help you identify if a Chubb subsidiary has a good or poor complaint record.

Here’s how I establish my auto & homeowners insurance complaint ratings:

B = Better than average. Insurance companies with complaint ratios less than 75% of the average insurance company.

C = Average. Insurance companies with complaint ratios from 75% to 125% of the average insurance company. I use a minus sign (-) to indicate auto insurance complaint ratios slightly worse than average (1.05 to 1.25) and a plus sign (+) for auto insurance complaint ratios slightly better than average (.95 to .75).

W = Worse than average. Insurance companies with complaint ratios more than 125% of the average insurance company.

I prefer companies with the longest recent history of “B” ratings each year (or at least in the most recent three years). Companies with “B” or “C+” ratings are okay, too, particularly if they have less market share, with less than $100,000,000 in premiums for that line of insurance (auto or home) each year. I prefer to avoid companies with a consistently higher than average number of complaints, or with inconsistent complaint records, unless there are mitigating factors, such as small market share.

Below are my complaint ratings (better than average, average, worse than average) for the Chubb companies selling auto and/or homeowners insurance in the USA:
