You’d have to be a stranger to news channels, radio stations and all national publications for the past three months to ignore the horrible devastation that southern states have endured. Tennessee, Georgia, Oklahoma and especially Alabama and Missouri have seen what an unleashed Mother Nature can do.
Because of the weather outbreaks, it is undoubtedly “more risky” for the insurance providers that took most of the beating. Allstate and StateFarm, in particular, are looking to hike homeowners insurance premiums up to 30% in order to cover the risk. Allstate homeowners, in particular, are looking at an average of $172 additional increase for their homeowner’s policy upon renewal.
When you take a look at the black and white dotted lines, it’s astonishing how much money this will end up costing Georgia homeowners!
Take a look at the MATH:
THE FACTS, as reported by AJC:
# Georgia Homes are insured by (just) Allstate= 359,710 homes
Average increase per homeowner policy expected= $172
359,710 homes * $172 added increase= $61,870,120

- Creating job opportunities for an economy with increasing rates of unemployment?
- Investing in local transportation safety and improving highways?
- Funding local healthcare programs and hospitals?
- Upgrading parks and recreations for children and families?
