SALEM, Ore. – Drivers in Oregon may soon see a refund on their car insurance because of Gov. Kate Brown’s month-old stay-at-home order.

According to the Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services, more than 20 insurance companies have committed to providing premium refunds or credits to Oregon customers. The refunds are the result of a reduced risk of car crashes as residents are asked to remain at home and avoid traveling on the roads whenever possible.

Officials said they have provided guidance to insurance companies in order to get the refunds to consumers “as quickly as possible," though no date has been set.

In addition to the premium refunds, the Oregon Division of Financial Regulation has asked all insurers to provide temporary private passenger car insurance for drivers delivering food, prescriptions, and other products for their employers.
