FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MMA Update: Additional Insurance Checks Soon to be "In The Mail!"
The Massachusetts Motorcycle Association (MMA) is pleased to announce that Plymouth Rock, Metropolitan Property & Casualty, and Pilgrim Insurance will begin mailing refund checks to Motorcyclists during the month of October. This brings the number of Insurance Carriers who’ve issued refunds to 6 and the total amount of money returned to Motorcyclists up to $21.6 Million from carriers that have settled to date.
The Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office has been working diligently to assure that the FULL amount due riders is returned to them. While this process has taken longer than anticipated, it’s borne the fruit of additional funds being returned that were not anticipated. An additional $100,000 was added to the Metropolitan refunds due and over $600,000 to the combined Pilgrim and Plymouth Rock totals, bringing the total amount recovered for Motorcyclists to $4.3M from these combined companies.
Checks to policyholders are expected to be mailed by the end of October. 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. Additionally, the MA AGO continues to work with the remaining carriers who do business in Massachusetts and expects to announce additional agreements in the coming weeks.
Motorcyclists who’ve had insurance policies including Comprehensive and/or Collision in Massachusetts since 2002 are urged to contact their insurance carrier or email MyRefund@MassMotorcycle.org with your insurance carrier and contact information (if moved, please include past contact information). All information is kept confidential and will only be shared with the carrier and AGO.
