Trustage Auto Insurance Discount for Credit Union Members

TruStage offers a car insurance discount to credit union members through Liberty Mutual. The discount isn't big enough to make up for Liberty Mutual's expensive rates unless you qualify for other discounts, too.

Editor's Rating

TruStage is primarily a life insurance company. It doesn't sell auto or property insurance directly. Instead, TruStage refers customers shopping for car, home, condo and renters insurance to Liberty Mutual.

The biggest benefit of buying auto insurance through TruStage is that credit union members may receive a discount of around 5%. You may need to call a Liberty Mutual agent to get the discount.

If you aren't a member of a credit union, there's no benefit to getting insurance through TruStage. But even if you qualify for a discount through TruStage, you can probably find a better rate elsewhere.

Good for
  • Lots of discounts
  • Unique coverage options

TruStage auto insurance coverage

TruStage doesn't provide auto insurance coverage directly. It refers consumers to Liberty Mutual.

Liberty Mutual offers the basic coverage you'd expect from car insurance, like liability coverage if you hit another car and comprehensive coverage if your vehicle is stolen. It also offers lots of extra coverage options for drivers who need more protection.

Accident forgiveness

Accident forgiveness can keep your rates from going up if you cause an accident.

Better car replacement

Better car replacement coverage will pay to replace your car with a newer model if it's totaled.

Gap coverage

Gap coverage will pay the difference between the value of your car and your loan or lease amount if it's totaled.

Lifetime guarantee replacement

Lifetime guarantee replacement coverage guarantees any repairs made by a Liberty Mutual preferred repair shop for as long as you own your car.

Mexico car insurance

Mexico car insurance can protect you and your car if you drive across the border.

New car replacement

New car replacement coverage will replace your new car with a brand new model if it's totaled within the first year.

Original parts replacement

Original parts replacement coverage guarantees your car will be repaired using original manufacturer parts or the best parts available.

Rental reimbursement

Rental car reimbursement will cover the cost of a rental car if your vehicle is in the shop after a covered accident.

Roadside assistance

Roadside assistance will help pay for towing, a tire change and other emergency services if your car breaks down on the side of the road.

Teacher coverage

Teacher's car insurance will pay to repair damage from vandalism and waive your collision deductible while you're driving on school business. It also expands your personal property protection to cover items that are damaged in an accident or stolen from your car.

TruStage discounts

The only Liberty Mutual discount that's unique to TruStage is the credit union discount.

Most eligible drivers can save around 5% with the TruStage credit union discount.

Liberty Mutual offers a lot of other discounts — more than most major insurance companies. You can save money if you:

  • Are an active-duty or reserve member of the military or a veteran
  • Buy multiple policies from Liberty Mutual, like home or renters insurance
  • Buy your policy online
  • Get a quote with Liberty Mutual before your current policy expires
  • Haven't filed a car insurance claim in five years or longer
  • Haven't received a ticket in five years or longer
  • Insure a child who goes to school in another city and leaves their car at home
  • Insure a student with good grades
  • Insure multiple cars on the same policy
  • Own your home
  • Pay your bill up front or in two installments
  • Sign up for automatic payments
  • Sign up to receive policy documents and bills via email
  • Sign up for Liberty Mutual's usage-based program

These discounts will typically make a much bigger impact on what you'll pay for car insurance than credit union discounts. It's worth it to check with several insurance companies to see if you can find a cheaper rate than what TruStage offers.
