Many "old timers" will recall the huge two or three-volume reference manuals published by A.M. Best and Company used to determine the "ratings" of various insurance companies. While those reference manuals are still available and offer a wealth of information, there is a quicker and easier way to determine the A.M. Best rating of an insurance company. By visiting the A.M. Best website, users can view the rating of an insurance company with a few quick keystrokes. Additional information is also available for a fee.
