Second Annual SIU Conference

On March 21, 2014, Florida Peninsula Insurance Company held its 2nd Annual Fraud Conference. This conference invited independent claims adjusters, claims attorney's and experts to discuss trends, red flags, and reporting methods to ensure the company works together with law enforcement agencies to combat insurance fraud throughout the State of Florida.  Insurance fraud costs consumers millions of dollars annually when insurance carriers pay for fraudulent claims.  This fraud causes premiums to increase throughout the state and affects the ability of some homeowners on fixed or limited incomes to go without the peace of mind of homeowners insurance.

At this year's conference the following were recognized for their outstanding work to prevent fraud:

Connie Avila

Scott LaRue

Richard Creel
