Public Hearing Set For Rate Filings By Allstate Floridian Companies
Wednesday, November 1, 2006
Tallahassee (November 1, 2006) – The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (Office) has scheduled a public hearing tomorrow on rate filings submitted by Allstate Floridian Insurance Company and Allstate Floridian Indemnity Company.  The hearing for these rate filings will be held in Tallahassee, in the Senate Office Building, Room 401, at The Capitol.
Allstate Floridian Insurance Company and Allstate Floridian Indemnity Company have requested average statewide increases of 22.5 and 33.2 percent, respectively, for their homeowners insurance rates in Florida.  The public hearing for these filings will take place November 2, 2006, at 1:00 p.m.
The requested rates are not uniform and some areas in the state are subject to higher or lower rate changes.  Florida law requires that the Office hold public hearings on rate filings for statewide average increases exceeding 15 percent when a private hurricane model is used or for any purpose deemed necessary by the Office. 
This hearing is open to the public and input from interested parties is welcome.  Those unable to attend the public hearing may forward comments to the Office at ratehearings@fldfs.com.  The subject line of emails should read, Allstate Floridian Public Hearing.  All public rate hearings conducted by the Office are taped by the Florida Channel and available for viewing in two to three business days on the web at http://www.floir.com/Sections/PandC/ProductReview/RateHearingVideo.aspx.
Pursuant to the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act, any person requiring special accommodations to participate in this hearing should telephone Sam Coskey at (850) 413-2616 or e-mail him at sam.coskey@fldfs.com at least 48 hours prior to the hearing.
