BUCYRUS, OH – Ohio Mutual Insurance Group is offering personal auto premium credits on more than 80,000 personal auto policies for an estimated total of $6 million. This action is in response to the abrupt reduction in driving and corresponding auto claims attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Due to shelter-in-place orders across the country, there has been a significant reduction in personal auto losses. In response, Ohio Mutual is voluntarily providing a 25% personal auto premium credit that applies to an 11-week period (March 16 – May 31, 2020) for all policies in-force on May 31. Credits will be automatically applied to customers’ first invoice after June 1. Those with a balance less than the credit will receive a refund by check.
“Our goal is to do the right thing for our loyal policyholders in response to the sudden impact of the pandemic,” said Ohio Mutual President & CEO Mark C. Russell. “We know that many people are struggling at this time, so Ohio Mutual will continue to provide billing flexibility for customers experiencing financial difficulty, and to support vulnerable members of our community.”
In addition to the billing accommodations and personal auto premium credits, Ohio Mutual has recently made significant financial donations to support the work of the Salvation Army feeding program, the Children’s Hunger Alliance, and local healthcare facilities.
The (COVID-19) coronavirus pandemic is one of the most unexpected and far-reaching events of recent times.
We know that a number of our policyholders may find themselves in uncharted territory as a result of this pandemic.
