New York Insureds – Victims of Domestic Violence
New York Insurance Law section 2612 provides very important protections for the victims of domestic violence, which are meant to guide and enable insurers to guard against the disclosure of certain information. New York Insurance Law section 2612 specifically prohibits UPC Insurance from discriminating against domestic violence victims, denying insurance coverage, cancelling a policy, or requiring higher premiums for insurance coverage when the insured is a victim of domestic violence.
New York Insurance Law section 2612 also provides that if any person covered by an insurance policy delivers a valid order of protection against the policyholder or other person covered by the policy to UPC Insurance, then UPC Insurance is prohibited, for the duration of the order, from disclosing to the policyholder or other person the address and telephone number of the insured, or of any person or entity providing covered services to the insured. If a child is a covered person, then this right may be asserted by the child’s parent or guardian.
UPC Insurance policyholders who need to request confidentiality in connection with a valid order of protection, should contact us by phone or send a copy of any valid order of protection to:
