Gillman Insurance Problem Solvers, like many Allstate® Insurance clients, was happy to read that Georgia Insurance Commissioner, John King, was going public with his frustration over the national carrier’s 25% increase in insurance rates throughout the Peach State.

In a consumer alert issued on the Office of The Commissioner of Insurance and Safety Fire on August 16, King stated, ““I am angry and disappointed that Allstate has chosen to exploit a loophole in state law to implement such a substantial increase in costs on hardworking Georgians when families are already struggling with historic inflation everywhere from the gas pump to the grocery store. This latest increase means Allstate has now bypassed our office to raise overall rates in Georgia by 40% in this calendar year alone. In response, I have begun conversations with our legislative leaders regarding changes to state law to give our office additional authorities to protect consumers from these types of inexcusable actions.”

These increases are set to hit Allstate® customers on September 12 for new insurance policy holders, and on October 16 for current policy holders up for renewal. They basically have two options available to them in the days and weeks leading up to the increase…

  1. Policy holders can follow the advice of the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance and reach out to Allstate at to discuss any options available to them.
  2. Policy holders can start researching other insurance carriers to find a policy that meets their needs, as well as their budget.
