Original review: Aug. 3, 2020

I had been insured by Geico for many, many years. For some reason I decided to get a quote from Erie and found the premium to be a lot lower. I switched to Erie several years ago and have been extremely pleased with their service. My car was stolen about 1.5 years ago and Erie was very efficient and generous in dealing with this claim. My car was never recovered and so I was given $12,500 for my stolen car. I believed I'd get about $8000 for it so the amount I was given was a great relief. It's always terribly inconvenient and painful to have a car stolen but Erie made the experience as good as could be. My agent is very responsive.

Great products, great service, excellent rates. Better than Amica, easy payment schedule and always able to talk to a rep. So far haven't had any problems or complaints. Always have my ID card sent to me each time my renewal comes up and always on time.

    I have been very satisfied with Erie Insurance. I was with GEICO before and was paying way too much for my home and auto coverage. Erie saved me about 20 percent from the start and I check them each year to make sure they are in line. I have had one claim and it was handled perfectly. Five Stars ****

    The Customer Service is provided by the local agent. That will make or break someone's opinion. I personally don't care for online only insurance services. The price we get is very good. We are older drivers but have been with Erie while our children (now adults) were covered under our policy. After hours service is available.

    My agent is always available for me and answers any questions I have. I bundled my house and car with him. Service is outstanding. I’ll never change. My family had been with Erie for years also. A local agent.

    Been with Erie for awhile now. They are cheaper than most. The adjuster that came out both times I was rear ended was great! Problem is, we had a guy rear end us at the end of May, we hired a lawyer since we like most, don't trust insurance companies. We are STILL waiting at time this review, to get a settlement. There is no reason someone needs to wait this long for a settlement that is not their fault. It all went smooth until they was told that a lawyer was hired.

    I have been with them since 2013. I was paying 963 for 4 cars. Moved out to the County and 833. This month I had to move back to Original address 1204.00 with no explanation why. No changes but zip code.

    Was rear ended Nov.30, 2019 by one of Erie's insured. It is now May 11th. I have faxed and called so many times with no results. It has been almost 6 months since my accident with them not resolving it, I have hospital, ambulance and Dr. bills which have not been paid because they refuse to handle the situation. It is a fairly small settlement, I am 65 years old with no means of covering them, If they pay without, me getting a lawyer, just remember that they are slow or no pay. I am very frustrated.

    One of your insured ran a stop sign and T-boned me on 9/24/19. I had medical treatment until December 21, 2019. Why won't you answer any of my calls about a settlement. I have called numerous times, even emailed due to the COVID 19 situation. It's Now May 4th, and not only will you not return any of my inquiries, but you have also failed to send me anything. I have submitted all records to you as soon as you requested them. I have been told that I would receive something in January, then February.... And nothing arrived. That is also when you refused to answer any of my calls.

    I recently filed a claim against one of their insured drivers after I was hit from behind from an 81-year-old woman who should not be on the road. I faxed my claim, they had a police report, called me and said "your accident looks consistent for what you said happened so we will be cutting you a check and if you need a to rent a car let us know." A week later no check. I call and they are now ignoring my calls and not returning my calls. I later receive a letter saying they are not going to cover my damages. What a shady cowardly company to say they would take care of my car when she clearly hit me and now they are hiding and dodging calls. I actually have the message saved to my phone that they are sending me a check and will be pursuing further action.

    Erie Auto Insurance author review by Matthew Brodsky

    This auto insurance company writes policies in 12 states and Washington, D.C. The company also offers homeowners insurance. Bundling this with auto insurance means lower premiums on both. The company’s Auto Plus package includes benefits like rental car coverage, vanishing deductibles and death benefits.

    • Coverage and plans: Erie offers basic coverage for medical payments and personal injury protection, liability, collision, comprehensive and uninsured and underinsured motorists. Additional coverage exists for windshield repair, personal property and pet injury.

    • Cost: A 20-year-old, regardless of gender, can expect to pay about $230 a month for auto insurance from Erie.

    • Discounts: Erie has discounts for safe drivers, good students, safety equipment, upfront payment, low usage, bundling and multivehicle policies.

    • Standout feature: Erie’s accident forgiveness policy means, after three years of safe driving, one accident won’t increase your premiums.
