Amica Mutual Insurance Ranked Top In Customer Satisfaction

J.D. Power and Associates has named Amica Mutual Insurance of Rhode Island as 2009’s top ranked “Highest in Customer Satisfaction Among National Auto Insurers.” The study measures five aspects of service in the order of customer importance; interaction, policy offerings, payment and billing, price and claims.

The customers rate their interaction experience with their car insurance provider whether the communication is through a local agent, call center, an automated phone system or the insurance company’s Web site.

Customers also rate the selection of policies offered by their car insurance providers as well as the degree in which these options meet their needs. Payment and billing is rated on timeliness, clarity and accuracy of billing statements as well as the payment process. The pricing portion is based on how customers rate their car insurance company on price of premium as compared to the level of coverage.

Overall satisfaction is scored based on all aspects of the service experience of the customer with their current car insurance provider.
