Uplifting News: Allstate and American Family Insurance To Return $800 million To Customers

No one’s driving so risks are low - Allstate and American Family Insurance to reimburse clients.

  • Allstate will refund 15% of premiums for April and May.

  • American Family will refund $50 per car per household.

  • Both companies will also permit payment delays.


The current lock-down climate has its ups and downs. Many of us are relaxing, binge-watching Netflix and Disney+ series all the while trying to figure out if Carole Baskin did or did not kill her husband. All of these couch-centric activities mean that there are far fewer of us practicing our bad driving habits. The result is fewer accidents and lower risk factors. Because of this, Allstate and American Family Insurance have decided to reimburse its customers.

This is uplifting news indeed. Many of us have lost jobs and sources of income and so any sum of money we get is welcomed. Allstate 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 will return up to 15% of paid premiums for April and May, which equates to $600 million. Meanwhile, American Family Insurance will give back $50 per car per household for a total of $200 million.

The question some are asking is whether on not this is enough. Apparently, Allstate pays out over $1 billion a month in auto insurance claims and some experts thank that claims will drop by roughly 85% during the lock-down.
