Many insurance companies use credit scoring as a factor in their underwriting process for auto and home insurance in Texas. The insurance credit score is the result of a calculation involving portions of your credit history.
In simplified terms, insurance credit scoring accounts for the tendency of groups of people to be prone to risk, or making claims (similar to how the age of youthful drivers is an indicator of risk for more accidents, and therefore more claims).
The Texas Department of Insurance has posted information about insurance credit scoring and consumer rights and protections. Here is the link, Insurance Credit Scoring.
