The insurance agency increased rates by 3 percent for Oregon customers. The company says the hike will cover the rising cost of health care, repairs and legal fees in connection to auto wrecks. Even though it’s a statewide increase, not everyone will be affected.
“If you have an increase, it will vary on types of coverage you have, discounts you have, where you live, what car you have insured. So there’s a lot of factors that go into whether or not you might even see an increase,” said Brad Hilliard, State Farm Insurance Representative.
State Farm says the increase goes into effect on July 29. The increase can be seen on renewal notice.
