Dem Govs Get It Done: Gov. Gretchen Whitmer Delivers Massive Savings for Michiganders with $400 Auto Insurance Refund Checks

Latest News

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced yesterday that Michigan drivers will receive a $400 check for every car they own as a result of her historic bipartisan insurance reform bill that addresses high costs.

“These refunds and the recently announced statewide average rate reductions are lowering costs for every Michigan driver,” Gov. Whitmer said.

Now that the reforms, which have been heralded as a “financial boon” for drivers, are leading to direct savings, the state is flooded with positive press about how Gov. Whitmer is delivering for Michiganders:

  • Associated Press: “Michigan drivers will get $400 insurance refund per vehicle.”
  • WDIV Local 4 in Detroit: “Whitmer requested the refunds earlier this year, she called for a $5 billion surplus reported by the MCCA to be refunded to insured drivers as soon as possible.”
  • MLive: “The refund announcement comes after Whitmer’s request that the MCCA use a $5 billion surplus to pay back drivers who have paid into the fund.”
  • Detroit Free Press: “Whitmer called for refunds on Nov. 1, saying the surplus in the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association Fund had grown to $5 billion since she signed into law bipartisan auto insurance legislation in 2019 that was intended to lower premiums…”
  • Detroit News: “The Democratic governor called on the MCCA to issue refund checks to distribute its $5 billion surplus in November.”

“After signing the historic and bipartisan auto insurance reform bill, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is putting money back in Michiganders’ pockets,” said DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton. “Whether it’s fixing the damn roads or delivering savings for drivers, Gov. Whitmer is proving she can work with anyone to tackle Michigan’s toughest challenges.”
