State insurance rep in London over Holocaust claims

"By moving forward with the international commission, it is our hope that these unpaid claims will be swiftly resolved and that justice will prevail."

In many of the cases, unpaid insurance claims of the Holocaust survivors and family members of the victims are several decades overdue.

Last September, Holocaust survivors and their families appeared at an NAIC meeting asking insurance regulators for assistance in getting their insurance claims paid. Since then, Quackenbush and the state Department of Insurance have been working on international, federal and state levels to force insurance companies to pay life and property insurance claims of those who were killed during the Holocaust.

"We expect complete and enthusiastic cooperation from our European counterparts. It is essential that we meet the common goal of ensuring that insurance companies pay any unpaid claims as expeditiously as possible and bring this injustice to a close," Quackenbush said.
