LOS ANGELES, Calif. (KGET) — AAA announced Monday that members who insure their vehicles through the Interinsurance Exchange of the automobile club and its affiliate insurers will receive premium refunds totaling $125 million.
Every policyholder with auto insurance in effect from March 16, 2020, to May 15, 2020, will receive a 20 percent policy refund check for this period, according to a AAA news release. Refund checks are expected to be mailed by the end of May. No action is required on the part of members.
“We recognize the extreme financial toll the COVID-19 pandemic is taking on AAA members across the country.
