Pekin Insurance® Reports New Special Investigations Unit
Pekin Insurance is excited to announce the development of a Special Investigations Unit (SIU) within the company’s Claim Department. The new unit is dedicated to identifying and fighting all insurance fraud.
Insurance fraud is big business costing Americans an estimated $30 billion per year. In fact, insurance fraud is the second largest economic crime in America, second only to tax evasion. It affects all of us by driving up costs and premiums.
The new Special Investigations Unit will work diligently to identify, investigate, fight, and deter insurance fraud. Arron Hampton, the company’s Workers Compensation Claim Manager, is managing the new SIU, and Patrick Elliott has accepted the role as SIU Specialist.
