Admitted Insurance Companies
In California these are companies that are licensed with the state and must file and have rate changes approved by the Department of Insurance. Admitted companies are considered “standard” insurance companies, and they specialize in low-medium risk insurance. Unless you have several tickets and accidents, or have a high risk home, you’re probably insured by one of these standard companies. Because they’re licensed with the state, they participate in the State Guarantee Fund, which provides consumers with protection if their insurance company becomes insolvent or goes bankrupt.
