Have you heard of LexisNexis?

February 2nd, 2012 at 09:18 am

I just got notice from my bank about LexisNexis... any of you heard of it before? I hadn't. Basically, everyone knows how we can request a free credit report annually, right? Well, apparently, with that same FACT Act legislation, we can also request a free report with regards to insurance claims and employment/resident histories about ourselves once a year as well. Who knew? Anyway, the company to go through is LexisNexis. You have to submit documentation as to your identity and they will send you a report providing a 7-year history of losses associated with personal property, auto losses, inquiry history, etc. that is on file associated with your identity. Apparently, insurance underwriters use this info in determining your risk and premium rates and stuff. Some employers or landlord companies use this info too. Anyway, just thought I would share the info in case anyone was interested in obtaining this free info.

    I was introduced to LexisNexis when I was doing my Master's reseach 7-10 years ago. I didn't end up using it. Most everything I needed was at the school library, but if I needed an obscure journal article, I could have used it.

    LexisNexis does a lot of different things. I use it daily in my work to update alumni addresses, identify spouse names, etc. A friend of mine uses it to access legal literature.

    I had only heard of it with regard to legal research, when I worked at a law firm during undergrad. It sounds like it can be used to lead to a lot of different information, if insurance companies are using it as well!
