Auto insurer Allstate is returning money to customers as widespread shutdowns across the U.S. from the coronavirus cut down on driving. Allstate expects to give back more than $600 million, with personal auto customers receiving 15% of their monthly premium in April and May.
Allstate Chief Executive Officer Tom Wilson said, “This is fair because less driving means fewer accidents because states across the U.S. have issued stay-at-home mandates to help slow the spread of coronavirus.” Meghan Cass, Allstate Spokesperson, told WGRT, “We have learned that the best response during a crisis is to act quickly and put people first. It’s at times like these, when communities across the country need us most, that we are here for them.”
Shelter-in-Place Payback payments will go to all US and Canadian customers with personal auto insurance. Allstate customers who are having financial problems because of a loss of income can inquire about delayed premium payments. Local Allstate Agent Rusty Fournier told WGRT that if customers have any questions they can call his office at 810-982-2340.
