Massachusetts’ Safety Insurance Extends Personal Auto Relief Credit
Safety Insurance has extended its Personal Auto Relief Credit through June 30 to reflect changing consumer patterns and needs during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, according to a company press release. The original credit was announced in April and offered all eligible Safety Insurance personal auto policyholders a 15% credit off of their premium for the months of April and May. “Our goal during the past 12 weeks has been to support our policyholders and broader community as they address the economic and health realities associated with the coronavirus,” said Safety Insurance President and CEO George Murphy in the release. “Given the current focus on limiting public activities, continuing this discount through the end of the month is the right thing to do. The positive feedback we received during the first discount period indicated that this was a meaningful step for our policyholders.” The additional credit will be applied automatically, and policyholders already paid in full will receive a refund. “This has been a difficult period for our community. In addition to heartbreaking loss of life and illness, many local residents have seen serious financial implications from this quickly changing situation,” Murphy added in the release. “It is important to our team that we contribute to addressing these challenges.”
