USAA expands its telematics app

USAA announced that it is launching SafePilot in the majority of states throughout 2021, beginning today in South Dakota and Oregon. The SafePilot app instructs and rewards safe driving habits to help keep drivers safe on the road while lowering insurance premiums.

Members who enroll in SafePilot in South Dakota and Oregon are 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.

“We are excited to offer SafePilot to our members in South Dakota to promote safe driving behaviors and to offer up significant policy discounts. USAA is committed to providing competitive products and services that support the military and their families, with discounts being just one way for us to help facilitate their financial security.” – Randy Termeer, SVP, GM Auto Insurance.

SafePilot is currently available in Arizona, Ohio, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia, with plans to launch in the majority of states throughout 2021 to accommodate growing demand. In addition to discounts, members may be eligible for extra savings through bundling their auto and homeowners’ insurance.
