What is a policyholder savings dividend? Auto insurance coverage.
The policyholder savings dividend is a discretionary sum returned to a policyholder by the Interinsurance Exchange of the Automobile Club (“Exchange”) out of its surplus. Dividends are not guaranteed and are paid when approved by the Exchange.
If payment of a dividend has been approved, when would I find out?
If a dividend is approved for payment, it will be listed in your auto renewal offer, which you should receive at least 30 days before the expiration date of your policy. Although you will be notified of a dividend payment in the renewal offer, you are not required to renew your policy to qualify for the dividend.
How do I earn a dividend that has been approved?
To earn any approved policyholder savings dividend, all you need to do is complete your policy term. If your auto policy is canceled before the expiration date, a dividend will not be paid on the policy.
Are dividends guaranteed?
No. Dividends are approved at the discretion of the Exchange, and the amount of any future dividend may vary from year to year. While auto insurance dividends are not guaranteed, they have been paid for more than 20 years.
