N.C. Rate Bureau Requests 28.4% Rate Increase for Auto Insurance


Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey on Feb. 2 announced the North Carolina Rate Bureau has submitted a rate filing with the N.C. Department of Insurance, requesting an increase for auto policies.

In the filing, the bureau has requested an overall average statewide increase in private passenger auto insurance rates of 28.4%, which would become effective Oct. 1.

The N.C. Rate Bureau represents the auto insurance companies in the state and is not a part of the N.C. Department of Insurance. By law, the bureau must submit auto rate filings with the department every year by Feb. 1.

Causey and department staff will thoroughly review the filing and determine whether the requested increase is justified or not based on the data submitted. If the department does not agree with the requested increase, it can negotiate a settlement or call for a hearing.
