Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty ordered State Farm Florida to issue credits or refunds totaling $120 million to current and former policyholders who did not apply for or who did not receive the Windstorm Loss Reduction Rating Plan discount for making their homes more resistant to wind damage. In addition, State Farm must pay a $1 million penalty to the Florida Insurance Regulatory Trust Fund.

Everything Florida consumers can do to reduce storm damage helps to keep property insurance costs down.”
