Are you a member of a large group or organization? Being a member may qualify you for discounts on auto insurance. Sit down for a few minutes and think of all the groups you belong to, like:
  • Professional societies and licensing boards
  • Alumni associations
  • Credit unions
  • Banks, credit card issuers
  • Fraternities and sororities
  • Student organizations and honorary societies
  • Military associations
  • Professional development groups
Check to see if any of these groups have made arrangements with an insurance agency for group discounts. Many of them have! Group rates are a way for insurance agencies to find new business by giving preferential treatment to members of certain organizations. It’s a great way for you to save money on your auto insurance without doing a thing. You’re already a member, so all you need to do is declare your affiliation with the group that’s getting the discount. You may also qualify for a group discount through your employer. Large companies and organizations sometimes offer this type of benefit to their employees through a human resources or benefits department. Ask your employer if they have any group discounts with an auto insurer.
