Maryland Drivers Benefit from State Farm® Auto Insurance Rate Cuts
Second Decrease in Two Years to Affect Approximately 830,000 Policyholders
State Farm will cut its auto rates in Maryland for the second year in a row. As a result, the overall personal auto rate will drop by 1.4 percent. Statewide, customers of the Maryland's largest insurer will realize total savings of approximately $13 million.
The effective date for new and renewal business is March 25. The last rate change in Maryland was a decrease of 3 percent in July 2018. Combined, the two auto rate decreases will save Maryland customers $41.8 million.
“State Farm is very pleased to be able to offer another auto rate decrease in State,” said State Farm Senior Vice President Chris Schell. “Improving expenses and losses were important factors, among many, that supported our decision to make this rate change."
Overall changes in premiums for individual motorists will vary. Rates depend on a customer’s policy and chosen coverage. Customers can contact their local State Farm agent to discuss their individual situation. Additional opportunities for discounts may apply.
A rate decrease combined with discounts offers exceptional long-term value to State Farm customers.
