The Maryland Insurance Administration, a state regulatory agency, offers a variety of consumer materials on all types of insurance products from annuities to title insurance and health, auto and homeowners insurance. Trained staff will be available to answer consumer questions at the Chester River Hospital Center, 100 Brown St., Chestertown, on Tuesday, Aug. 21, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“A key aspect of the Maryland Insurance Administration’s mission involves educating the citizens of our state about the choices available to them as consumers of insurance products,” says Therese M. Goldsmith, Maryland Insurance Commissioner. “The more informed consumers are, the better equipped they are to make purchasing decisions that are right for them.”
A schedule of agency outreach activities and consumer materials are available on the website, www.mdinsurance.state.md.us, at various community events. For information, call 410-468-2360.
