    To Plymouth Rock Assurance Corp.,
    My comment is regarding my Auto Insurance; I’ve been meaning to express my displeasure at my high Auto Insurance for 2014.
    This year it’s $1070; I find this outrageously high. Every year the rate keeps going up and up. Why? My Houston Agent tells me it’s because of my age–being over age 65. I’m listening to the radio today, Tuesday, August 26, 2014–to the Eagan & Braude program on WGBH about Massachusetts drivers–and they say Senior Citizens actually have less accidents than younger drivers.
    My car was involved in an accident that was not my fault; another driver hit my car.
    At the time, I told the adjuster I was pleased at how good your Company made payment.
    Now I’m wondering if the big increase this year is because of this accident. I asked the agent at Houston Insurance, and was told this was not the case, but because of my age.
    In 2011 the premium was $810; in 2012 $873; in 2013 $962; in 2014 $1070. I think the amount this yrar being over $1000 dollars is abhorrent. And I believe I have all the discounts—Senior discount etc. I was upset about this, and told Houston Insurance–and tried to go to another Company, but there was a problem with combining the Home Insurance; but I refuse to pay any increase in 2015; and if I have find another Insurance Agent, I may have to do that. The point is I have been with this Company for so many years, starting from when my Father was alive, so that’s a lot of years. But I am not paying these outrageous premiums; you are gouging people. The premium of $1070 makes me cringe; that’s a lot of money to me, since I don’t have a large income.
    I’m just getting this off my chest; I hope the premium doesn’t keep going up, and up every year. At this rate, I’m just going to run out of money.
    Sincerely yours, Antonetta Yocco
