Domestic partners could save on car insurance with the married rate
Insurance companies generally offer lower rates to married couples. But what about LGBT couples? Shouldn't the same logic apply?
At Esurance, we think it should. In fact, we were one of the very first car insurance companies to extend the married rate to the LGBT community. And we now offer it to our motorcycle insurance customers too.
Today, you can get this rate in all states where we do business except FL and NC where it is not approved by the department of insurance. MA does not allow the married rate, regardless of gender. Registered domestic partners in CA should choose "Domestic partner (registered)" to receive this rate. In NY, you must be married to qualify.
What the married rate means for you
It's simple. If you and your partner are insured on the same policy, you can enjoy the same great car insurance savings as married couples — even in states that don't recognize your union.
Though the married rate is not a discount, it can provide a significant savings opportunity. Plus, if you and your partner own more than one car, you could also qualify for the Multi-Car discount. Just one more way to save money on car insurance with Esurance.
How to sign up for the married rate
Signing up for the married rate with Esurance is a piece of cake.
When you get your Esurance quote, you have 3 options to get the married rate. You can select "domestic partner" as your marital status. Or, if you're in a registered domestic partnership in California, select "domestic partner (registered)." And of course, if you're married, just select "married." Simple as that. The savings you receive from the married rate will be automatically applied to your car insurance quote.
Esurance supports LGBT equality
As a company born online, we've made it a priority to bring insurance into the modern world. And naturally, diversity and equality are the cornerstones of this commitment.
While we work hard to help our customers save money, it's just as important to us that we also give back. From sponsoring Pride events across the country, to partnering with The Trevor Project, to promoting donation campaigns on Facebook, we're doing what we can to bring LGBT equality to the forefront.
