Germania Today | Spring 2021

You are (virtually) invited to your Local Chapter meeting Spring is in the air, and it’s time to tune into your 2021 Local Chapter annual meeting! Germania’s foremost interest is to protect the well-being of our agents and policyholders. With COVID-19 remaining a risk, Germania has asked our local chapters to host their 2021 meetings virtually or by teleconference (phone). We understand this may not be the most accessible option for our policyholders, however, we feel current safety is of the utmost importance. We look forward to returning to in person meetings next year. If you have questions, please reach out to your agent for more information on your Local Chapter ’s annual meeting. What would you do with more? Did you know you can get a 12% discount when you pay your Personal Auto premium in full by the effective date of the policy? With Germania’s Paid in Full Discount, you pay 12% less, so you have more for the things you love. That means more ice cream trips with the family, more date nights, or more “me” time at the spa. The Paid in Full Discount is available for all vehicle types, including private passenger, motor homes, antique autos, and trailers. The Paid in Full Discount will be available to you on your next auto renewal. Your renewal will show the amount to pay if you would like to pay in full (with the discount applied). You will need to pay the premium in full prior to your policy effective date. Germania also offers many different payment plan options if paying in full in not the best option for you. Payments can be made with check, credit card, or electronic funds transfer. More savings means more of the things you love. Contact your Germania agent for more information about the Paid in Full Discount.
