Why do you ask for my Social Security Number?

By providing your Social Security Number, we are able to offer you the most accurate quote possible for your insurance. Rest assured, any information that we gather from a credit reporting agency about you will NOT affect your credit score. These types of inquiries are considered “soft hits”, similar to when you pull your own credit report for review.


We take your personal information security very seriously. All information is encrypted to ensure that it is kept private and we will never share the information with anyone for their marketing purposes. For more information on Markel's Privacy Policy, please click here.
