A recent bulletin from the Connecticut Insurance Department extends the state's "flex-rate" filing for personal risks until July 1, 2017. The extension applies to all personal risk rate filings submitted after June 30, 2015.
Under Connecticut's flex-rate law and implementing regulations, insurers can immediately start using homeowners and personal auto rates upon filing them with the department, provided the rates do not amount to an 12-month statewide increase or decrease of greater than 6% in the aggregate, or a 15% increase in any individual territory.
The limitations on "file and use" apply to each company within a group (i.e., they cannot average their filings). Also, companies are allowed to make multiple filings within a 12-month period without prior approval, provided the filings do not exceed the flex-rating limits on a cumulative basis.
