DULUTH, Ga., March 1 /PRNewswire/ — State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, the largest insurer of autos in Georgia and in the nation, announced today its auto insurance policyholders in Georgia will receive dividends totaling $62 million.

State Farm Mutual policyholders in 46 states, the District of Columbia and the Canadian province of New Brunswick will receive a total of $1.25 billion in the company’s latest policyholder dividend declaration, approved by the State Farm Mutual board of directors.

Georgia policyholders will receive 11.2 percent of their semi-annual premium. Although the amounts will vary significantly, the average dividend per vehicle in Georgia is $42.
