Discounts for Simpler Billing? Yes Please.

When it comes to your coverage, we know that price plays a big role in your final decision. That’s why we offer a variety of discounts — to reward you for being smart about your protection. So whether you’re a new customer or you’ve been with us a while, it’s important to get to know all of the discounts you can take advantage of.

Keep in mind that not every policy will offer a discount, which is why having a conversation with your American Family agent about which discounts you might qualify for is a smart move. American Family Insurance’s bill payment options are simple and convenient. The following discounts are the most common discounts to take advantage of, and we’ll walk you through just how to get them.

Paperless Billing Discount

When you sign up to receive all of your billing statements electronically, you can save on fees by taking advantage of the Paperless Billing Discount. After your policy is set up, you’ll have 10 days to enroll in paperless billing before the discount is removed from your policy. Enrolling is easy, just simply head to My Account and opt in for Go Paperless in the Payments & Billing section.

Auto Pay Discount Options

Now you can add convenient automatic payments for a secure and simple way to pay your bill. And we offer two ways to qualify for this discount. No more worrying about due dates, you get to pick the payment date and method that work for you. Whichever way you choose, getting the Auto Pay Discount is easy – it only requires a few minutes of your time to qualify, so take a look at the options below to see which one fits you best.

Option 1: My Account Auto Pay discount

If you prefer to set up and manage automatic payments on your own, enrolling in My Account is the way to go. First off be sure to use a checking or savings account when you sign up. There are tons of benefits to enrolling in My Account! You can see and manage your auto, home and umbrella policies, get proof of insurance cards, report claims, and yes, go paperless! After enrolling in to My Account, you’ll need to register your account(s) for online billing and then set up automatic payments. Go to Billing and Payments and then select Add Auto Pay and you’re on your way. Once enrolled, you'll only receive a paper billing statement when changes are made to your billing account. Paperless statements will be sent to your email account, and they’ll also be available to you online. My Account makes your busy life a little simpler. It’s quick, it’s easy and it’s available anytime, from anywhere.*

Option 2: Automated Funds Transfer discount

When you pay your American Family bills through our Automated Funds Transfer (AFT) option, your payments are automatically deducted from your checking or savings account the day they're due. You’ll need to have details on a checking or savings account when you enroll. You’ll have the option to pay monthly or in full. Note that making payments manually and/or paying with a debit/credit card are not allowed with AFT. And this is helpful to know: If your due date falls on a weekend or holiday, the deduction takes place on the next business day. AFT can be used for personal, business and farm/ranch policies. If you'd like to start using AFT, contact your American Family Insurance agent. It’s a great way to get peace of mind, knowing that you’ll be paying on time, every time.*

Full Pay Discount

The Full Pay Discount is just what it sounds like — pay your bill in full, then get a discount. You’ll have three days after finalizing or renewing your policy to pay your premium completely, using any form of payment. It’s important to get your payment in as soon as possible, as this discount will be removed from your policy if payment isn’t received in three days.
