As per Allstate, March catastrophe losses included six events estimated at $343 million or $271 million, after-tax, with approximately 80% of the losses related to one hail event.

This was reportedly somewhat offset by favourable reserve reestimates for prior events.

In total, March was a heavier month for catastrophe losses than February, which fell under the $150 million reporting threshold, though it was substantially lower than in March of the previous year, where catastrophe losses were $1.17 billion or $927 million, after tax.

Meanwhile, Allstate brand homeowners insurance rate increases have resulted in a premium impact of 0.7% for March and 3.4% year-to-date.

At the same time, implemented rate increases and inflation in insured home replacement costs resulted in an 11.9% increase in homeowners insurance average gross written premium in March 2024 compared to the prior year.
