SAN ANTONIO—(April 29, 2021) USAA members are showing an increased interest in behavior- and usage-based insurance programs. To accommodate growing demand, today USAA is announcing the expansion of SafePilot in 10 states.

 

The new states include Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Idaho, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico and Tennessee, with the program now offered in 16 states total.

 

The USAA SafePilot™ app instructs, inspires and rewards safe driving habits to help keep drivers safe on the road while lowering insurance premiums. Members who enroll in SafePilot are now eligible for initial policy discounts up to 10% for signing up for the program, and continued policy discounts up to 30% for safe driving behaviors.

 

USAA recently shared that SafePilot enrollments grew over 200% in 2020, and that nearly half of the new policyholders in states where the program was available opted-in to the program.

 

“COVID-19 has impacted the lives and finances of many Americans, and we are operating in an increasingly digital world accelerated by the pandemic,” said Jim Syring, USAA P&C President. “We are excited to bring SafePilot to more members as part of our commitment to provide competitive products and services that support the military and their families, and to deliver best-in-class digital offerings based on current demands.”

 

SafePilot is currently available in Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Iowa, Idaho, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia, and is launching in most states throughout 2021 to accommodate growing demand.

 

In addition to discounts, members may be eligible for extra savings through bundling their auto and homeowners’ insurance.[1]
