Responding to economic stresses caused by the coronavirus emergency, Farm Bureau Insurance of Tennessee is issuing $30 million in special payments to auto policyholders, Chief Executive Officer Jeff Pannell announced Wednesday.

During the state’s stay-at-home order, Tennesseans are driving less and are filing fewer automobile claims. While that trend may continue, and some insurers are taking a “pay it back” approach, Farm Bureau Insurance is opting to “pay it forward,” Pannell said.
