Illinois Insurance Hotline intended to aid confused consumers     Send a link to a friend

[SEPT. 18, 2004]  SPRINGFIELD -- State Sen. Larry Bomke, R-Springfield, says that Illinois citizens unfamiliar with the insurance marketplace and seeking impartial answers to their insurance questions or concerns should access the Illinois Insurance Hotline.

"The Illinois Insurance Hotline is a great resource for any consumer who would like to purchase some type of insurance but has limited understanding of how to do so or what insurance policy will best meet their needs," Bomke said.

Interested consumers can call the toll-free number and speak directly to an unbiased, informed consultant who is available to suggest insurance options, as well as provide Illinois citizens with general information on a variety of insurance-related topics. Bomke stressed that this is not a forum for selling insurance.

"The Insurance Hotline acts as a source for information on auto, home, life and health insurance matters but does not endorse any specific company or agent, nor do the consultants attempt to sell insurance," confirmed Bomke. "The hot line was developed to help Illinois citizens become informed insurance consumers."
