offered at the R.L. Summers Insurance Agency.

In recent years many insurers have been offering discounts to numerous groups to attract new customers. These discounts will decrease your entire insurance premium. In addition, many group plans do not charge interest or require an initial deposit. Groups can be sponsored by an employer, civic organization, motor club, association, trade union, credit union, etc. You may want to check with us at The R.L. Summers Insurance Agency to learn which groups our insurers has been approved to offer discounts to and the size of the discounts. Any member of an approved group is eligible for the discount.

Group plans are not guaranteed to be renewed, or to be renewed at the current discount level. By law, groups may be continued if after two years of operation the group has 35% of its eligible members participating. If, however, after three years a group's loss and expense ratio makes the group unprofitable it can not renew policies.

Help Prevent Fraud

Fill out the accident forms completely and accurately, making sure to get all necessary information from any other drivers and passengers. Keep a camera in your auto and take snapshots at the scene. Report the name and address of every person in the other autos, including those who were not apparently injured.

Be sure your body shop is registered with the Division of Standards (617) 727-3480.

If you suspect fraudulent conduct on the part of anyone involved in your motor vehicle accident or your insurance claim - the other operators or any passengers, the repair shop, the appraiser, or any employee of the insurer - please call the Insurance Fraud Bureau hotline 1-800-32-FRAUD. Another number to remember is the Governor's Auto Theft Strike Force Hotline 1-800-HOT-AUTO when you have information about an auto theft. You will be able to speak confidentially with an investigator about your suspicions.
