Notice to New York Domestic Violence Victims and Endangered Individuals

New York Insurance Law §2612 prohibits discrimination based on being a victim of domestic violence. A key provision of §2612 provides that if any person covered by an insurance policy delivers to the insurer a valid order of protection against the policyholder or other person covered by the policy, then the insurer is prohibited for the duration of the order from disclosing to the policyholder or other person the address and telephone number of the victim, or of any person or entity providing covered services to the victim. If a child is a covered person this right of confidentiality established by §2612 may be asserted by the child's parent or guardian.

How to keep your address and telephone number confidential

Send:
  1. A copy of your order of protection against a policyholder or other person covered by a Utica First Insurance Company policy that you are also covered by.
  2. Include any alternative address, telephone number, or other method of contact for you and anyone else included in the order of protection.
