Direct Auto Insurance has announced that its affiliates are giving their personal auto insurance policyholders a 15% credit on their April premiums to support them during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The credit will apply automatically to any auto policy that is active through April 30, subject to state regulatory approvals, Direct Auto Insurance said. The credit is in addition to other COVID-19 billing relief currently in place for policyholders who demonstrate financial need, the company said. Agent commissions will not be impacted by the credit.
“During these uncertain times, we’re doing everything we can to help ease customers’ concerns about paying their policies,” said Aaron Kuluk, executive vice president of direct-to-consumer distribution for Direct Auto Insurance. “That’s why we’re giving back through this premium credit and offering different relief options so our customers can get the flexibility they need.”
Direct Auto’s parent company has also committed to donating $3 million to charitable organizations that include, but are not limited to, those that provide COVID-19 relief in the communities Direct Auto serves.
“It has been our mission to be there for our customers since our founding, and we feel a meaningful contribution to relief efforts has the potential to make a significant difference to those in need during this difficult time,” Kuluk said. “We’re proud to offer this support, and our thoughts are with all those who have been impacted by this global pandemic.”
