As you may know, many insurance companies use credit-based scores to help determine a customer’s insurance premium. Your score is compiled through a review of your credit history and any patterns that result. It may take into account your payment history, any outstanding debts, the length of your credit history, whether you’ve filed for bankruptcy, and any new applications for credit. The score is used to help insurance companies accurately assign an appropriate price available for your policy.
Extensive research shows a correlation between credit history and insurance claim history – that those with certain patterns in their credit history are more likely to file insurance claims. Insurance scoring works by giving a higher score to those who are less likely to file claims and a lower score to those most likely to file claims.
An insurance score does not take into account income, race, gender, religion, marital status, national origin or geographic location. It only reviews your credit history.
When insurance companies know the likelihood that a customer will file a claim, they can set rates that are accurate and appropriate for each customer. This enables carriers to offer insurance coverage to a broader range of customers and helps them determine your price.
Although credit history helps predict the potential for future losses, it’s only one factor used in determining the cost of your policy. A driver’s age and prior claim history are two other important factors.
Travelers uses your insurance score together with a number of other factors to determine the appropriate pricing level available to you. Generally speaking, customers who have higher insurance scores and no prior claims or accidents qualify for our better price.
For those customers with prior claims or accidents, a higher insurance score will help them qualify for a better rate than a similar customer who has a significantly lower insurance score. In turn, customers with no prior accidents or claims, but who have low insurance scores, may also qualify for a competitive rate.
If you’ve purchased a new set of wheels, Travelers offers a way to save on your auto insurance. New car owners can receive as much as 10 percent off collision coverage – just for a newer model vehicle.
