Salem, Ore. December 3, 2012 - State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, the largest insurer of autos in Oregon and in the nation, is raising its overall rate level in Oregon an average of 0.2 percent effective December 3, 2012.
As part of this rate change, Oregon policyholders may be able to exercise even more control over how much they can save on their auto insurance with our Drive Safe and Save™ program.
The cost of premiums for comprehensive coverages will decrease with this rate change. Some policy holders will see increases while other will see decreases for collision coverage. The new rate reflects an increase in the cost of coverage for liability.
Overall premium changes for individual motorists will vary depending on factors such as the coverages they carry, the discounts for which they qualify, where they live, the kind of car insured, who drives it and how much it is driven.
About one in every five cars insured in Oregon is insured by State Farm.
