Federated Insurance Takes Action in
Response to an Emerging Catastrophic Trend


Devastating vehicle crashes have not slowed during the global pandemic; in fact, data suggests roads are more dangerous than ever. Unfortunately, Federated’s association member clients are not immune to this as they have been involved in an alarming number of vehicle crashes in recent months. In response to this emerging catastrophic trend, Federated Insurance is taking additional action.

For the first time ever, Federated Chairman and CEO Jeff Fetters is personally addressing member clients about the incredible human toll of auto crashes and the unsettling rise in related claims we’ve seen in 2020 via a special video message and letter. He urges business leaders to spend a few minutes discussing driving safety with their valued employees. Finally, he passionately emphasizes that the responsibility to prevent vehicle crashes is a shared one, in which both Federated and association members need to play a proactive role.

Federated marketing representatives have been providing this message to businesses since late September along with supplemental sample talking points to help owners and managers having these necessary conversations about safe driving with their employees.

Federated cares deeply about helping protect businesses, employee drivers, and all those whose lives are forever changed due to senseless, often preventable vehicle crashes.
