Auto Insurance Discounts Reward Military Service
Unfortunately, there are too many stories of service men and women who have come back from serving their country only to find out that the benefits and perks promised to them are not as helpful as anticipated. However, that is not to say that there are not other organizations looking out for the overall welfare for those who are onactive duty, retired from the Military, or a member of the National Guard or Reserves. One such industry that is respectful of its commitment to our armed forces are auto insurance providers, and many times they are willing to offer a 15% discount on auto insurance costs for military personnel.
The trend of helping out service personnel was first started by USAA (United Services Automobile Association) and Geico (Government Employees Insurance Company), and they are still the largest providers of this discount. However many other insurers such as State Farm, have also decided to come aboard.
The discount for military service personnel was backed by theNational Association of Professional Insurance Agents. They fought for those who protect the country’s freedom and released an announcement demanding that the underwriting requirement be waived in the case of returning U.S. troops, thus allowing service personnel a better discount on high insurance rates when putting their previously stored vehicles back on the road.
