Shelter Insurance® Provides Assistance to Personal Auto Insurance Customers

The Shelter Insurance® ( group of companies was among the first to take the stance of continuing coverage when a customer could not pay their premium, and now Shelter, including its subsidiaries AmShield Insurance®, Haulers Insurance®, and Say Insurance®, will join others in the industry in finding ways to provide relief to customers who insure their personal autos with Shelter. 

Many of Shelter’s customers are under unprecedented stay-at-home orders and social-distancing mandates, so they are driving fewer miles and experiencing fewer accidents. In the interest of providing help to customers now, when they need it most, Shelter will issue a payment to policyholders representing approximately 30% of their personal auto monthly premium for the months of April and May, based on Shelter’s best estimate of the impact of this pandemic on customers and on Shelter’s business.

Shelter will work diligently to obtain approval from the Departments of Insurance in each state they serve to get this money into their customers’ hands as quickly as possible. If a customer paid their premium automatically through a bank account, they will deposit directly into the account when possible. Otherwise, they will mail a check.

Shelter Insurance® is a group of companies with four personal lines property and casualty companies, a reinsurance company, and a life insurance company. Shelter offers auto, home, life, farm, and business insurance services to customers in 21 states.
