Allstate Corrects Misperceptions Zodiac Press Release May Have Created
NORTHBROOK, Ill., Jan. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Allstate Corporation today issued the following statement:
We recently issued a press release on Zodiac signs and accident rates, which led to some confusion around whether astrological signs are part of the underwriting process.
Astrological signs have absolutely no role in how we base coverage and set rates. Rating by astrology would not be actuarially sound. We realize that our hard working customers view their insurance expense very seriously. So do we.
We deeply apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
