CRANSTON, RHODE ISLAND -- I had Progressive insurance for well over 11 years. I thought it was normal for insurance rates to go higher now and then due to the economy. In all the years I was insured with Progressive I had NO accidents, NO tickets and a perfect driving record. Then it came to light that they were raising my insurance rates every year not because I was ever late with a payment (because I was never late) and not because I did anything wrong as far as my driving record. They raised my rates because of my credit rating!!!!
Can someone please tell me what does my credit rating have to do with my automobile insurance? BTW I paid them in person and in cash.
