Michigan drivers will soon receive $400 per-vehicle refunds from their auto insurance companies!
The refunds are due to cost savings in the new auto insurance law, which has resulted in a $5 billion surplus in the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association (MCCA) catastrophic fund. Governor Whitmer called on the MCCA to return the maximum amount of surplus funds to Michiganders with auto insurance while ensuring continuity of care for the injured, and in late 2021, the MCCA authorized a $3 billion refund to drivers.
Anyone who had a vehicle, motorcycle, or RV that was covered by a policy that meets the minimum insurance requirements to operate on Michigan roads as of 11:59 p.m. on October 31, 2021 is eligible to receive a refund for that vehicle. Historical vehicles are eligible for a refund of $80 per historical vehicle.
It’s important to know that you do not have to do anything in order to receive your refund. Insurers will issue refunds to eligible drivers automatically via check or ACH deposit by May 9.
