the messed up world of insurance
Called Progressive to do a name change on the wife and a change from single to married on the both of us. Well, the auto policy had a decrease of 20% which we had just paid in full, so, a credit is due, awesome.
Get transferred to the m/c side of Progressive to do the same. The m/c (one presently) is on a seperate policy with both of our names on it, still with Progressive mind you. The "agent" makes the changes to the wifes name and our status, married vs. single, and she tells me there is a 10% INCREASE in our policy. WTF?
Somebody has got to explain this to me.
How can being married make you less of a risk in an auto but more of a risk on two wheels?
I know I am preaching to the choir but I had to vent a bit. Thanks for listening.
