Becoming an Arbitrator

Thank you for your interest in becoming an AF member arbitrator. With more than 743,000 disputes resolved annually around the country, it is clear that the member arbitrators are a vital force that makes the Intercompany Arbitration process such a success. Arbitrators' contribution to the insurance industry results in:

  • Reducing case turnaround time
  • Reducing disputed claim-handling costs

Arbitrators become the in-house arbitration experts by:

  • Learning good and bad or alternative ways to prepare a file for arbitration
  • Becoming more familiar with AF's rules and regulations
  • Participating in focus groups on local issues
  • Sharing knowledge gained with others in the office
