“We’re very happy to make this announcement today and applaud the efforts of the Attorney General’s Office and their continual communications with the MMA since the start of these investigations.” states Doc D’Errico, MMA Safety & Education Director, the primary contact with the AGO.
Doc goes on to report that “Arbella and Hanover will be sending out checks by the end of October, OneBeacon and Norfolk & Dedham (N&D) are to issue checks by mid-November, and National Grange Mutual (NGM) is expected to issue refunds in early 2011.”
Policyholders can validate their refund status by going to the AGO Motorcycle Insurance Refund Database and entering their Policy Number:
Refund checks have already been issued by Liberty Mutual, Quincy Mutual, and Safety Insurance. Agreement has also been reached with USAA, but those refunds are still pending.

The MA AGO continues to work with the remaining carriers who do business in Massachusetts and expects to announce additional agreements in the coming months.
