Allstate Insurance Company is beginning to relax its automobile insurance underwriting guidelines for U.S. servicemen and women returning from military deployment in Iraq and Afghanistan. The carrier issued a statement on July 15 stating that auto insurance applications from U.S. military personnel whose auto insurance policies lapsed solely due to their active duty deployment in Iraq or Afghanistan will be treated as if auto insurance coverage had been continuous during their overseas deployment.

"What Allstate has done is exactly the right thing to do," said PIA National Executive Vice President and CEO Len Brevik, in an interview with the National Underwriter. "These soldiers have done the most they can do for us and their country. This is the least we can do for them."
