  • Alabama Governor Signs E-delivery Bill

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. – In Alabama consumers now can view their insurance documents online and conduct policyholder communications digitally after Governor Bentley signed SB 292 into law.

    “The Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) commends Governor Bentley for signing SB 292,” said PCI’s regional manager Logan McFaddin. “This bill is a huge win for Alabama policyholders allowing them to review or renew their insurance policies, receive their insurance bills, or other notices through the Internet as opposed to regular mail delivery if they choose to do so.”

    There is a growing trend across the country to enable insurers to conduct all policyholder transactions over the internet with the consumer’s consent.

    “It’s important for policyholders to know that this will be up to them to decide, they can simply choose to go paperless or not, added McFaddin. “This flexibility allows insurers to meet the increased demand by consumers who want to do business electronically.”

    Alabama is now the 33rd state to allow insurers to conduct policyholder communications digitally.
