The company claims that this represents a $400 million improvement over its anticipated loss and an ALAE of $1.4 billion reported as of September 30, 2022.

Progressive states that given that it exceeded its $200 million retention threshold under its reinsurance contracts in September, the change in estimate for the firm’s Property losses and ALAE will not impact its results of operations for December.
