The 2012 Automobile Insurance Discount Act (Proposition 33) will allow California insurance consumers to qualify for a continuous automobile coverage discount regardless of the company where they are seeking car insurance.
- This proposal gives consumers, instead of insurance companies, ownership of their continuous automobile coverage.
- Currently a California consumer can receive a discount for having continuous auto insurance, but cannot take this discount to competing insurance carriers.
- This proposition gives consumers control – similar to consumers owning their cell phone number, or their credit history.
- This is a consumer friendly initiative that creates competition among insurance companies and lowers prices.
- This proposal is also an incentive for more consumers to purchase car insurance.
- This proposition was written to be inclusive– we have listened to the voters, our clients, and even the opposition, and made changes.
- Military – If you are in the military, you are eligible for the discount.
- Unemployed – If you are unemployed for up to 18 months because of layoff or furlough; you are eligible for the discount.
- Young Drivers – A young person on the cusp of leaving home gets the same rate as parents.
- Proportionality – Drivers are given a discount proportional to the amount of full years they have had insurance in the previous five years.
A bipartisan group has already voiced their support.
