Summary of submission

The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) is a national, 100-plus year old not-for-profit organization dedicated to fighting insurance fraud and vehicle crime.

Insurers need to ensure that catastrophe managers, adjusters, special investigate units and claims personnel are well coordinated, responsive and engaged in anti-fraud efforts. In a disaster, NICB’s mission will be to conduct operations germane to the NICB’s role as a representative of its member companies: examine and/or recover stolen vehicles, respond to fraudulent claims and conduct investigations of same, and liaison with local, state, and federal authorities as it pertains to the NICB mission. Additionally, NICB will make its high-resolution aerial imagery rapidly accessible, at no cost, to first responders, humanitarian organizations, and federal and state agencies, providing them with actionable insight into the situation on the ground.
