What States let Insurance Companies Check my Credit

Q. What states let insurance companies check my credit?

A. In the U.S., insurers in all but one state may check an individual’s credit information. The only state that actually prohibits insurance companies from using your credit score is California. All other states make it optional for insurance companies to check your credit – although many do take advantage of doing so when considering an applicant for coverage in order to determine whether or not they are an acceptable risk.
