(Boston, MA) Safety Insurance today announced the extension of its Personal Auto Relief Credit through June 30, reflecting changing consumer patterns and needs during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The original credit was announced in April and offered all eligible Safety Insurance personal auto policyholders a 15% credit off 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. Given the current focus on limiting public activities, continuing this discount through the end of the month is the right thing to do,” said George Murphy, President and CEO of Safety Insurance. “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; policyholders already paid in full will receive a refund.
Through Safety’s Charitable Foundation, the company has also provided financial support to charities directly addressing both the pandemic and economic challenges that have resulted from stay-at-home efforts: Massachusetts COVID -19 Relief Fund; Boston Resiliency Fund; Project Bread and Healthcare Heroes to benefit the Massachusetts General Emergency Response Fund.
“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,” continued Murphy. “It is important to our team that we contribute to addressing these challenges.”
