Esurance Helps Same-Sex Partners Save Money on Car Insurance

Consumers in Illinois Can Save up to 10% on Their Car Insurance Premiums

Esurance is now offering new car insurance savings to same-sex partners in Illinois.

The Illinois legislature's Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act prompted Esurance to offer new savings for Illinois consumers who qualify according to the new Illinois law*

Consumers can save as much as 10% or more on their car insurance premiums. The savings varies when things like accident history, driving record and vehicle type are taken into account.

Esurance has a long history of support and involvement in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender issues, including:

- Donating $50,000 in 2011 to The Trevor Project, the leading organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth.
- Promoting and sponsoring Pride events around the country, including Seattle Pride, St. Pete Pride, Gay Days Orlando, and the upcoming Come Out with Pride in Orlando.
- A perfect score from the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index for the last four years.
- A 2011 Bay Area Workplace Diversity Award for supporting equality in the work environment.

*According to Esurance's multi-state analysis, 10% is the average premium savings realized when couples are rated as "married" rather than "single." Same-sex couples in a civil union will get a "married" rate when they list on the same policy, which is a lower rate than those previously available to such non-married individuals. This rate applies to two persons of the same or opposite sex who form a civil union as recognized by the Illinois law. Esurance will also honor in Illinois civil unions, same-sex civil unions, and marriages legally entered into in other jurisdictions.
