Watch those Surcharges!

In a recent Boston Globe article they wrote of some insurance companies charging a surcharge to a customer that shouldn’t have received one. In 2015 the Mass legislature approved higher thresholds for surcharges resulting from an auto accident.

If you get into a fender bender and cause $900 worth of damage you should not have a surcharge on your auto policy.  If you do, appeal it! The new limit is anything under $1000 should not be a surcharge on your auto insurance.

Two of the companies still using the unfair lower thresholds are Geico and Liberty Mutual.

Here is the article, which explains everything in greater detail.

The above is meant as general information and as general policy descriptions to help you understand the different types of coverages available to you. Always consult your policy for actual coverages and exclusions.
