Step 1

Apply for a finding of Eligibility to Seek Compensation with the Office of the Public Advisor

Intervene in any Rate Application or Investigatory or Regulatory Hearing involving Property and Casualty Insurance (i.e. home and auto insurance)

  • File a Petition to Intervene and Petition for a Hearing with the Office of the Public Advisor (See CC&R, Section 2623.3 for suggested form language.)
