Because the novel coronavirus pandemic has had most of the states in the country on stay-at-home orders, there are far less people driving the road. If there are any, the drivers of those vehicles are either essential workers or people doing grocery store or pharmacy runs.
Depending on what state you live in, stay-at-home orders could have been going on for at least one month now. Since there are far less people driving, two auto insurance companies – Allstate and American Family Insurance – have said they will be giving back $800 million to their customers.
Allstate’s CEO Tom Wilson said, “Given an unprecedented decline in driving, customers will receive a Shelter-in-Place Payback. This is fair because less driving means fewer accidents.”
Allstate announced the Shelter-in-Place Payback on social media on Monday (April 6) and will apply to customers in all 50 states and Canada, regardless of if their state has stay-at-home orders. The company will give their customers back 15% of their April and may premiums, totaling more than $600 million.
We’ve been helping customers overcome unknowns for 89 years. And this year has been no exception. That’s why we’re doing…
Along with the Shelter-in-Place Payback, Allstate will work with customers whose income has been affected by the virus and is offering Identity Protection now that our lives have moved more online.

American Family Insurance will distribute a $50 premium relief payment to our customers for every personal automobile…
Hats off to these companies helping out their customers during this time!
