Stupid Insurance - Go Michigan!

Since this has to do with auto insurance, I thought I would put it in the Auto Industry section.

I hope the ban on using credit scores to determine insurance rates holds up and goes into effect next year. Last time I knew, my insurance agency, State Farm, didn't use credit scores. Good for them.

What in hell. I thought it was based on your age, sex, type of car, and driving record. I didn't know that credit scores were possibly a factor. That's shitty.

Maybe there is a correlation between those with bad credit and the amount of claims they make on their insurance.

I know many people with bad credit that have never filed a car insurance claim.

My bet is that the insurance companies look at your credit as a way of gauging your ability to pay bills on time.

That's exactly what it is. Low wage earners and people with poor credit statistically file a higher percentage of claims.
