Insurance Risk Score

Definition

Insurance Risk Score — a measure developed by insurers based on credit information obtained from the three major U.S. credit bureaus and used as an underwriting tool. Such information includes payment history, number of accounts open, and bankruptcy filings but has nothing to do with a consumer's assets. Insurers base their use of this measure on the theory that people who manage their money well tend to take better care of their homes and to drive more responsibly.
