WOOSTER, Ohio (June 4, 2020) – Wayne Insurance Group has issued a 15% credit to personal auto policyholders on two months of their policy premium for policies that were active on the close of business May 31, 2020. Checks have been issued to those who had already paid in full. For all others, a billing credit will appear on their next invoice. No additional action is required from policyholders to receive this credit.
“We know the actions taken to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus have caused financial hardship for many in Ohio,” said Tim Suppes, president and CEO at Wayne Insurance Group. “Since we are all staying home more and off the roads, the reduction in accidents allows us to take this action and pass these savings on to our policyholders. We felt this was the right thing to do for our policyholders at this time.”
As an Ohio-based mutual insurer writing business only in Ohio, Wayne Insurance Group and its employees are dedicated to giving back to local communities. To provide support in this time of need, the company has donated an additional 20% above and beyond this personal auto credit to a number of area healthcare and service organizations and to foodbanks around the state of Ohio.
In addition, the company emphasizes that those financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic can contact customer service at 800-222-3873 to discuss payment options.
The Wayne Insurance Group companies have offered property and casualty insurance to Ohio residents for more than 100 years. Headquartered in Wooster, the group markets its products and services exclusively through a statewide network of independent agencies.
