October 26, 2020

WEST TRENTON, NJ — NJM Insurance Group, a leading property and casualty insurer in the Mid-Atlantic region, is refunding a portion of premiums to policyholders through the NJM Policyholder Relief Program. Commercial auto customers will receive the equivalent of 15% of two months of their annual insurance premium, in recognition of reduced driving related to the pandemic.

In NJM's latest effort to assist policyholders impacted by the pandemic, the Company will mail refund checks to approximately 9,900 commercial auto policyholders, totaling $1.9 million in returned premium. Over the past several months, the Company has worked with its business insurance customers to implement payment plans and policy modifications for those affected by COVID-19.

"NJM operates in a mutual fashion, so this relief aligns with one of our core values — operating for the exclusive benefit of our policyholders," said Mitch Livingston, NJM president and CEO. "Our commitment to policyholders has set NJM apart for over a century, and it is especially important in this new economic reality."

"This refund recognizes the unprecedented challenges many of our policyholders have faced this year, including reductions in business operations," said Arjay Pedalino, NJM vice president of commercial lines. "While the country rebuilds and recovers, rest assured that NJM will continue working on behalf of its policyholders."

The NJM Policyholder Relief Program was created to help provide premium assistance for NJM policyholders affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In May and July, the NJM Policyholder Relief Program refunded a total of $69.4 million to personal auto policyholders.
