Not getting out much due to the coronavirus epidemic? If you live in most areas of the country, that’s the norm these days, and it has had its effect on the amount of driving Americans are doing. Recognizing that the COVID-19 crisis has altered driving patterns, which has resulted in fewer accidents and claims, Mercury Insurance today announced the company would be giving back 15% of monthly auto insurance premiums to customers in April and May.
Subject to regulatory approval, the company will automatically credit customers’ accounts, providing much-needed relief during this time. The Mercury “Giveback” program applies to personal auto policyholders in the 11 states in which the company operates. Mercury Insurance sells personal automobile, homeowners, and commercial insurance through a network of independent agents in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Texas, and Virginia.
“We want our customers to know we’ve got their back,” Mercury Insurance President and CEO Gabriel Tirador said. “For nearly 60 years, Mercury has provided best-in-class protection at an affordable price. And during these uncertain times, we’re going even further by giving back more than $65 million to our customers.”
The Mercury Giveback Program is the latest step taken by Mercury to provide relief for policyholders who are impacted financially by the COVID-19 pandemic. To learn more about the company’s response to COVID-19, please visit http://www.mercuryinsurance.com.
