Big Gretch is Delivering Big Savings for Michigan Drivers
Every Michigan driver with auto insurance will be seeing a “financial boon” thanks to efforts by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to lower costs for working families, according to new reporting from the Detroit News.
After Gov. Whitmer called on the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association to return up to $5 billion in surpluses to Michiganders, the association unanimously voted to issue refund checks to every Michigan resident with auto insurance.
The refund is made possible by the historic, bipartisan legislation signed by Gov. Whitmer in 2019 that reforms Michigan’s auto insurance industry and saves drivers money.
“As we continue to put Michiganders first, I am always working to find ways to lower costs and use every resource we have to help Michiganders thrive,” said Governor Whitmer. “It is great news that the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association has swiftly taken action in response to my letter this week to begin the process of issuing refund checks to help drive down the costs and produce savings for Michiganders with auto insurance.”
“Gov. Whitmer isn’t just fixing the damn roads — she’s also making it more affordable to be a driver with her historic and bipartisan auto insurance reform that’s delivering direct savings to Michiganders,” said DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton. “Michigan elected Gov. Whitmer because they entrusted her to find bold solutions to the state’s largest challenges. In cutting costs and putting checks in people’s pockets, it’s abundantly clear Gov. Whitmer is getting the job done.”
