Insurance Agent Town Halls
To date, more than 3,000 people have attended DIFS’ virtual auto insurance town halls. Additional upcoming dates are listed online.
Michigan’s new auto insurance law lowers average statewide costs for Michigan drivers, maintains the highest coverage options in the country, and strengthens consumer protections. For policies that renew after July 1, 2020, drivers will need to determine the amount of coverage that best suits their needs. Drivers will be able to choose a level of Personal Injury Protection Medical Coverage and determine the level of Bodily Injury Coverage that best protects their family. By participating in the town hall meetings, drivers will learn about the upcoming choices and will have the opportunity to submit questions. Learn more at michigan.gov/autoinsurance.
DIFS continues to operate its dedicated, no-fault hotline with calls being answered Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Drivers can also call 833-ASK-DIFS (275-3437), email at email@example.com, or visit www.michigan.gov/autoinsurance for more information.
