What is CUE?
“The Claims and Underwriting Exchange (CUE) is a central database of motor, home and personal injury/industrial illness incidents reported to insurance companies, which may or may not give rise to a claim. CUE is managed by not-for-profit company Insurance Database Services Limited (IDSL) on behalf of its member organisations. These include all major insurers and many self insured organisations such as local authorities, passenger carriers and transport companies.
CUE was established in 1994 to help keep down premiums for honest policyholders by preventing multiple claims fraud and the misrepresentation of claims histories. There are currently over 32 million claims records available to subscribers.”
