AARP members who are over 50 years old can get an AARP car insurance discount by purchasing coverage through The Hartford’s AARP Auto Insurance Program, which provides rates and features tailored to seniors’ needs. In addition, Allstate gives current AARP members 20% off its roadside assistance coverage, even if they don’t use Allstate as their insurer. Mature drivers, whether AARP members or not, might also be able to obtain a discount for taking a driver safety course depending on the state and insurer.
Beyond discounts, the Hartford’s AARP Insurance includes a RecoverCare benefit, which will help pay for transportation and household necessities, like grocery delivery or snow shoveling, if you’re injured in an accident. Other benefits include a 24/7 claims hotline and a premium rate that is guaranteed for 12-months instead of potentially changing every six months. The Hartford’s AARP Advantage Plus program also offers extras like accident forgiveness and a disappearing deductible, which the standard AARP program doesn’t have.
Yes, Farmers will pay for windshield replacement or repair services for customers who have comprehensive coverage, though a deductible will apply unless state laws or policy details say otherwise. Comprehensive insurance from Farmers covers windshields damaged by weather, vandalism and theft, among other things.
In some states, specific laws govern whether customers will need to pay their deductible for windshield repairs or replacement. For instance, in Florida, Kentucky, and South Carolina, insurers cannot charge a deductible for windshield repairs or replacement.

On the other hand, if the windshield was damaged in an accident and the policyholder was at-fault, Farmers customers can file a collision claim, though their exact policy details will determine if they need to pay a collision deductible. And if the policyholder was not at-fault, the at-fault driver’s liability insurance should cover the damage without a deductible.
If you’re not sure whether you will need to pay a deductible for windshield replacement, you can check your policy details or call Farmers’s customer service line at 1 (888) 327-6335. To file a claim for windshield repair or replacement, you can use Farmers’s online portal.
Geico is so cheap because it sells insurance directly to consumers and offers a lot of discounts.
