Former Illinois Democrat state senator Annazette Collins is facing accusations of submitting false insurance policies after transitioning to a career in insurance sales.

Federal prosecutors allege that she submitted policies for individuals who didn’t request them or were not real people, linking these policies to bank accounts controlled by her or her daughter.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Michelle Parthum reportedly said, “Those policies were tied to bank accounts controlled either by Collins or her daughter.”

The Sun-Times reported that, “Prosecutors had previously disclosed Collins was fired from her job at American Income Life Insurance, but they said they would not seek to disclose the reason unless she decided to take the stand.”

“Federal investigations have swirled around Collins for years. Her name surfaced in two separate corruption trials last year, including the trial of four political insiders convicted of a nearly decade-long conspiracy to bribe former Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan to benefit ComEd,” the outlet continued.

According to the Illinois General Assembly website, Annazette Collins, “Served as an Administrator for the Chicago School Board. Previously served in the Department of Children and Family Services, the Cook County Probation Department, and as a Prison Correctional Officer.”

“[Collins] Received her bachelor degree in Sociology from Chicago State University and received an M.S. in Criminal Justice and has completed further graduate work in counseling from Chicago State University. Lives on Chicago’s West Side with her husband Keith Langston and daughters Angelique Nicole and Taylor Kourtnie,” her biography continued.

While no criminal charges have been filed, Collins recently faced allegations of evading nearly $100,000 in taxes.

Her termination from an insurance company due to policy violations was also disclosed.

Federal investigations have surrounded Collins for years, and her name was linked to corruption trials in the past.

The case is ongoing, with jurors planning to reconvene.

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners highlights the impact of insurance fraud on both consumers and businesses, emphasizing the industry’s significant size as a contributing factor to the cost of insurance fraud.
