NH Insurance Department Fraud Unit
Welcome to the Insurance Department Fraud Unit:

Created by the NH Legislature in 1993, the New Hampshire Insurance Fraud Unit (NHIFU) is comprised of a staff of four and has the assistance of an insurance fraud prosecutor from the New Hampshire Department of Justice. The Fraud Unit processes an average of over 300 fraud referrals each year. NH RSA 417:28 requires all insurers to report suspected insurance fraud to the NH Insurance Department fraud unit. Pursuant to NH RSA 417:30 all insurers are also required to have antifraud initiatives in place that will result in the detection, prosecution, and prevention of fraudulent insurance acts.

The Fraud Unit has a fraud outreach program. Staff will schedule community visits to discuss insurance fraud, its consequences, and how to recognize and prevent it. To set up an appointment for a fraud presentation before your group, or to report a possible insurance fraud crime, please call 1-800-852-3416.
