GEICO Temporarily Pausing Policy Cancellations

Sponsored by Businesswire

To better assist those impacted by coronavirus, GEICO is pausing cancellation of coverage due to non-payment and policy expiration, effectively immediately. This pause will remain in effect through April 30, 2020. In addition, GEICO is prepared to offer maximum flexibility, including special payment plans, to those who need it once normal billing operations are scheduled to resume.

“This ongoing situation impacts everyone, and we want our policyholders to have some peace of mind knowing we’ll be there when they need us most,” said GEICO President and CEO Todd Combs.

While GEICO associates are working as hard as they can to serve customers, the reality of this unprecedented event means some policyholders may experience longer than normal hold times. GEICO is encouraging policyholders to download the GEICO Mobile app or to setup an account on for quick, convenient service. Both platforms are accessible 24/7 and allow customers to:

Manage Payments – update automatic payment preferences, change payment plan, or pay bills

Update Policies – make changes to coverages, drivers, addresses, or vehicles

Access ID Cards pull up ID cards to print or email
