  2. To activate the company’s complaint handling process a policyholder(s) must provide a description of his/her complaint to the company in writing.
  3. Letters of complaint will be reviewed by the “Company Ombudsman/Liaison Representative” or his/her alternate within five (5) business days of being received at the company.
  4. The “Company Ombudsman/Liaison Representative” will consult with appropriate staff representatives and the Board of Directors and send to the policyholder a letter outlining the company’s final position within forty-five (45) days of the “Company Ombudsman/Liaison Representative’s” review of the letter of complaint.
  5. Our goal as a policyholder-owned, purely mutual company is to treat policyholders in a fair, courteous and timely manner. Time lines mentioned above are minimum standards.
