USAA launches telematics app SafePilot in seven new states

USAA announced the expansion of its SafePilot program in seven new states. The new states include Alabama, Colorado, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, Oklahoma and Utah, with the program now offered in 23 states total.

The USAA SafePilot app “instructs, inspires and rewards” safe driving habits to help keep drivers safe on the road while lowering insurance premiums. Members who enroll in SafePilot are now eligible for initial policy discounts up to 10% for signing up for the program, and continued policy discounts up to 30% for safe driving behaviors.

USAA recently shared that SafePilot enrollments grew over 200% in 2020, and that nearly half of the new policyholders in states where the program was available opted-in to the program.

“COVID-19 has impacted the lives and finances of many Americans, and we are operating in an increasingly digital world accelerated by the pandemic. We are excited to bring SafePilot to more members as part of our commitment to provide competitive products and services that support the military and their families, and to deliver best-in-class digital offerings based on current demands.” –  Jim Syring, USAA P&C President.

SafePilot is currently available in Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Idaho, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia, and is launching in most states throughout 2021.

In addition to discounts, members may be eligible for extra savings through bundling their auto and homeowners’ insurance.
