Unlucky insurance customers unveiled

28 June 2005
Churchill Insurance claims to have found the unluckiest name when it comes to insurance.

According to a new survey, people called Joy are the most likely to make insurance claims.

Figures show that customers called Joy tend to suffer from the most problems and make the most insurance claims.

A total of 180,000 policies were surveyed by Churchill and those called Joy appeared to suffer more break-ins, water leaks and general accidents.

"Our data does show that some names suffer much worse than others, but location, age and type of home are often better indicators," Churchill's head of home insurance, Martin Scott, said.

Other people that make a lot of insurance claims are 25-29 year olds, people living in the end of terrace homes and Britons in the north-east.
