Maryland Insurance Commissioner Al Redmer, Jr. is advising consumers to be wary of phone callers identifying themselves as a Maryland Insurance Administration employee and asking for your insurance information.

Commissioner Redmer said, "We do NOT make unsolicited calls to individuals asking for personal or financial data. We urge Marylanders to call us or local law enforcement if they are contacted by someone posing as a Maryland Insurance Administration staff member."

If you have questions, contact the Maryland Insurance Administration at 410-468-2000 or 800-492-6116. For assistance with any insurance issue, visit the Maryland Insurance Administration at www.insurance.maryland.gov.
