What’s Driving Auto Insurance?
Victoria Kilgore on the costs and affordability in New York

Virtual Lecture Series

“Our analysis recently showed that claim severity has dramatically increased in New York. New York has experienced higher-than-average increases in average claim payments for both bodily injury and personal injury protection claims, rising 48 percent and 46 percent respectively from 2008–2017. These increases in auto claim severity are preventing consumers from realizing the benefits of enhanced vehicle and roadway safety and falling claim frequency rates. Although our research indicates that auto insurance affordability in New York has in fact improved in recent years, New York remains one of the least affordable states for auto insurance.”– Victoria Kilgore, director of research, Insurance Research Council (IRC)

Join us on Wednesday, April 17 at 1:30 p.m. (EST) for a 30 minute virtual program and hear from Victoria Kilgore the director of research at the Insurance Research Council (IRC) as she discusses the auto insurance costs in New York.

Victoria Kilgore is director of research at the Insurance Research Council (IRC), a division of The Institutes. The IRC is an independent, nonprofit research organization supported by leading property and casualty insurance companies and associations. It provides timely and reliable information based on extensive data collection and analyses, examining important public policy matters that affect insurers, customers, and the general public. IRC is devoted solely to research and the communication of its research findings. It does not, however, advocate public policy; nor does it directly influence specific legislative initiatives or engage in lobbying communications.

Since joining the IRC in 1998, Vickie has helped coordinate the IRC public policy research process which includes closed claim studies, public opinion surveys, and other data collections. Her primary area of research is auto injury claims, and she has authored several studies focusing on fraud and buildup in auto injury claims. She has presented IRC work to state legislative committees, the Casualty Actuarial Society, the Society of Insurance Research, and at other industry events. She currently serves on the board of the Society of Insurance Research. Originally from Fort Wayne, Indiana, Vickie is a graduate of Northwestern University where she received a B.A. in economics. She received her M.A., also in economics, from the University of Michigan. She resides in Bartlett, IL with her family.
