Allstate Insurance Ordered to Cut Homeowner’s Insurance Rates

The California Department of Insurance has ordered Allstate Insurance to cut its homeowner’s insurance rates by 28.5 percent, one of the largest cuts ever required. On average, the each of the 50,000 Allstate ratepayers in California will save approximately $243 in premiums.

A complaint filed last year by the non-partisan group Consumer Watchdog challenging a proposed 9.8% increase in premiums led the decision.

“For the Insurance Commissioner to not only reject Allstate’s request for a rate increase, but to also accept our arguments for a substantial decrease, is a tremendous victory for California homeowners,” stated Los Angeles attorney Daniel Y. Zohar. “In these times of economic uncertainty, hundreds of thousands of consumers will be able to keep more of their hard-earned money, rather than have to line the ever-swelling pockets of Big Insurance.

Obviously disappointed, Allstate has state it will comply with the ruling.
