Tuesday 2 August 2022 03:39 PM Geico shuts all 38 offices in California and lays off hundreds of people trends now
GEICO, one of the largest insurance companies in the United States, has closed all 38 of its offices in California, resulting in hundreds of layoffs.
California customers hoping to walk into a GEICO office to sign up for a policy are out of luck, the Sacramento Bee reported, as several were turned away this week.
It was also reported that agent offices in the state that sell auto and homeowners policies have ended the practice of selling insurance in-person and through telephone agents.
However, the company told the paper GEICO will still be offering policies online, through a computer or mobile device. But buying policies directly through agents by phone will not be possible.
The reasons for the closures in California are unclear at this time. It is unknown if more closures across the United States are possible.
DailyMail.com has reached out to the company for more information.
