Notice of Protections for Victims of Domestic
Violence/Endangered Individuals Under §2612 of the New York Insurance
Summary of §2612
New York Insurance Law §2612 provides victims of domestic violence, including privacy protections and protections from discrimination, each of which is described below.
New York Insurance Law requires insurance companies to withhold from a policyholder the address and phone number of a domestic violence victim who is covered by an insurance policy, if a valid order of protection from a New York court is provided to the insurance company. If a child is the subject of the order
of protection, identifying information about the child and victim parent will also be protected.
In addition, the New York Insurance Law provides that the fact that a person is or has been a victim of domestic violence cannot be used as an underwriting criterion which include the following:
1. Refusing to issue, renew, deny, or cancel any insurance policy or contract.
2. Demanding or requiring a great premium or payment from any person.
3. Designating domestic violence as a preexisting condition for which coverage will be denied or reduced.
4. Using the fact that a person is or has been a victim of domestic violence as an underwriting criterion.
If you have an order of protection against a policy holder or any other person covered by us, and/or you are also covered by the policy, you may send the order of protection to the following:
• Email: email@example.com
• US Mail: Consumer Privacy, PO Box 451139, Omaha, NE 68145
Upon the company’s receipt of a valid protection order, the applicable policy will be marked as a confidential policy. Any confidential information will be removed prior to the release of any correspondence.
