Rates Decline for Drivers Over 75 in Delaware

In Delaware, drivers aged 75 and older are seeing their auto insurance rates fall.
June 12, 2018

In Delaware, drivers aged 75 and older are seeing their auto insurance rates fall by an average of $117 per year due to legislation passed last year that prohibits insurers from raising rates based solely on a driver reaching that age group. Consumers with policies through one insurer have seen average decreases of $252.

Insurance Commissioner Trinidad Navarro adds that the legislation — which also prohibits insurance companies from raising rates because of a spousal death and limits the use of credit information in rating personal insurance — has not prompted rate increases for any other drivers.

“There has been no language in any rate filing that rates have gone up specifically because of HB 80. So that’s how I know with certainty that it has not happened,” said Navarro.
