What to do if yours missed deadline

The deadline for auto insurers to issue $400 per vehicle refunds passed last week, and if you haven’t received yours, state officials said, you should ask your insurance company why.

It was unclear how many people were still waiting for refunds. 

Auto insurance refunds have been a key talking point for Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in recent months — in events and following a campaign promoting them — as she seeks a second four-year term in November.

On the deadline, May 9, Whitmer put out a news release with the reminder that “that today is the deadline” and instructions on what to do “if you are eligible for a refund but have not yet received it.”

Step 1: Are you qualified?

To qualify, residents must have had a vehicle insured in Michigan last Oct. 31. The policy must meet the minimum insurance requirements for operating a vehicle on Michigan roads.
