State Farm to cut car insurance rates of Illinois clients Alton Evening Telegraph Thursday, August. 31, 1972 A-3 WE GIVE EAGLE STAMPS State Farm Mutual — the state's largest auto insurer — will cut auto insurance rates of customers in Madison County and across the state as much as 4 per cent because of a decline in the frequency of auto accident claims, the Telegraph was told today. The rate cut will mean a reduction of $3 per year and more for State Farm policyholders in the Alton- Wood River-Godfrey territory and a total savings of approximately $5.8 million to customers across the state, a State Farm spokesman told the Telegraph. While costs of repair and labor per accident claim is rising, the actual number of accident claims per 1,000 policyholders has declined during the last 1% years, resulting in the rate reduction, Stale Farm told the Telegraph. The company Is unable to account for the reasons that the number of claims are declining, the spokesman said. The amount of reduction of premiums to Madison County policyholders will depend on where the customer lives, age, type of car owned, miles driven and kind of coverage carried, the company saiH. The rate reduction is in addition to a dividend of 7.7 per cent for poUcyholders. The reductions will be effective Sept. 1 for new policyholders and Oct. 1 f6r renewal policies.
