“American Family Insurance is doing this out of responsibility to our customers. They are driving less and experiencing fewer claims. Because of these results, they deserve premium relief,” American Family chief operating officer Telisa Yancy said.
Customers will get a one-time payment of $50 per vehicle covered by an American Family personal auto policy, the company announced Monday. Payments will be based on personal auto policies in force as of March 11, 2020, the date COVID-19 was deemed a pandemic by the World Health Organization.
