The Kansas Insurance Department has combined its annual homeowners and vehicle insurance information booklets into one publication.
The “2017 Auto and Homeowners Insurance” booklet gives the most updated information on general auto, homeowners and other housing insurance coverages, according to Ken Selzer, CPA, Kansas Commissioner of Insurance.
“As we began to compile 2017 information, our staff decided that combining the general insurance information for both types of coverage would be useful to the consumer as well as cost efficient for the department,” Commissioner Selzer said.
Included in the booklet are the following: a worksheet to help determine vehicle insurance needs; frequently asked questions for both types of insurance; information on renters and condominium insurance; and a glossary of homeowner insurance terms.
“The booklet can also be ordered online or printed for free as a PDF directly from the website, saving time and money,” Commissioner Selzer said.
Commissioner Selzer said the shopper’s guide portion of previous booklets is now located solely on the insurance department’s website,, Once consumers have posted information about their location, age and other premium factors, they can see the most current “snapshot” of coverage options for both vehicles and homes.
For more information about specific insurance needs, Kansans should contact their insurance agents; the department’s Consumer Assistance Hotline, (800) 432-2484; or the department’s online chat feature, located at
