08/29/2022 - CA: Personal Lines Update for Independent Agents

California Agency Owners, 

Effective August 29, 2022, Allstate will be making changes to new personal lines business for independent agents in the state of California. 

As of the above date, all Allstate brand personal lines products sold by independent agents will be closed for new business policies in California (any new home, auto, motorcycle, off-road vehicle, motorhome, renters, landlords, package, condo, boat or personal umbrella policy). 

These updates will be reflected in the comparative raters on August 29 or shortly after. Agents who have quotes in progress should complete these quotes and clear all pending transactions prior to August 26.

Please note:

·     There will be no impact to existing Allstate Independent Agent's personal lines customers in California. Please continue to serve your renewal customers as you normally would. 

·     Commercial lines will not be impacted. Agents may continue to write new commercial business in California. 

We realize the impact these actions have on your agency, and appreciate the extra time it takes to manage the customer experience in these situations. Allstate is dedicated to serving your existing customers and looks forward to providing alternate new business solutions to our IA partners in the future.
