Though we don’t miss traffic, as car people, we miss being on the road. For many of us, commutes to work, drives with the kids to school, and activities have been replaced with occasional trips to the grocery store or pharmacy. On the bright side, as drive time decreases across the country, so do collisions and claims with insurance. That may mean a break for the wallet in a time we’re all looking for savings. Let’s take a look at how some of the major Auto Insurers are providing relief for their customers.
If you’re an Allstate customer, you may be in luck. The “Shelter-in-Place Payback Program” will give back $600 million dollars during April and May. On average, that will provide 15% of money back on premiums for customers with personal auto insurance. The money will be automatically deposited through the app or the customer’s payment method, so keep an eye out for savings in April and May.
Did you know State Farm is the largest automobile insurer in the nation? Recently they announced The Good Neighbor Relief Program that will be refunding a $2 billion dividend. The money will be distributed to current State Farm policyholders, who should expect to see an average of a 25% reduction on their automobile policy premium for March 20 through May 31, 2020. The credit will appear on billing statements starting in June.
All current GEICO automobile and motorcycle customers with policies renewing between April 8 and October 7, 2020, will receive a 15% credit on their next bill. New customers that apply during that time frame will also receive a 15% credit on their policy.
A 20% credit is being given to current Progressive personal automobile policyholders for the months of April and May 2020. Further credits may be issued in the coming months.
Nationwide Mutual Group
Nationwide customers are receiving a one-time $50 premium refund for personal automobile policies, active as of March 31, 2020. Customers can expect to see the refund issued from mid-April to mid-May.
USAA is giving $520 million back to its members who have an automobile insurance policy that is current as of March 31, 2020. A 20% credit is being issued for two months of premiums. The credit will be applied to the member’s next bill, so customers do not need to contact USAA for additional action.
