Department Overview

The SIU department provides investigative services, technical expertise, and is a resource for Claims Services nationally. The SIU department’s vision is of world class performance and technical expertise dedicated to the appropriate investigation of insurance claims consistent with the highest standards of professional, ethical and legal conduct. The SIU department investigates files where there is a need for a more in-depth and specialized investigation beyond the scope of Claims Services. Where fact-finding is required, an SIU investigation is conducted in a fair, objective, thorough, timely and professional manner, enabling TDI to objectively make a determination of the facts and circumstances, appropriately addressing fraudulent and non-meritorious matters, and facilitating the resolution of meritorious claims.
