About IAM

A unified voice for the insurance industry, representing the majority of auto, home and business insurance companies operating in Michigan.

The Insurance Alliance of Michigan is a leading voice for property and casualty insurers in Michigan, representing companies large and small across the state.

IAM is a trusted source for policymakers, opinion leaders and the media. We're here to help connect decision-makers with the resources and expertise they need to make informed decisions.

We've also been at the forefront of the fight to reform Michigan's broken, outdated auto no-fault system for drivers paying the highest auto insurance premiums in the country.
