If you are unable to purchase a policy directly from an insurance company for any reason, contact an insurance agent and ask to apply to the Michigan Basic Property Insurance Association.

Where do I file a complaint against a Michigan insurance company?

If you have a dispute with your insurer, the Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services can help. The Office of Consumer Services can investigate your complaint and try to help resolve it or at least explain your options.

The department encourages you to try to resolve any complaint with the insurance company first. If such efforts fail, visit the DFIS website and fill out an insurance complaint form.
