Frequently Asked Questions: Erie Insurance COVID-19 Relief

How Will The Erie Insurance Dividend Be Calculated?

Approximate Dividend Payout: 30% Of 2 Months Premium (Approx 5% of Annual Premium)

To calculate the approximate dividend, Customers can use the following equation:

Annual premium (as of April 1) multiplied by .30 / divided by 6

The dividend payout will vary by Customer based on the policy premium.
 
For example, a policy with an annual premium of $1,400 as of April 1 would receive a dividend check for $70 as calculated below:
 
$1,400 annual premium * .30 = $420
$420 / 6 = $70 dividend
 
Additionally, here is a summary of sample Annual Premium and Check Amounts 1,000 = $50
1,200 = $60
1,400 = $70
1,600 = $80
1,800 = $90
2,000 = $100

Will ALL Customers See A Premium Reduction?

NO!

Most Customers will see a premium reduction after rates are approved; however, each Customer’s needs are different and therefore, their choices and coverages are different.
