How the Penalty Fees Work

Progressive provided us with a complete list of fees charged to customers. Several of the fees are non-recurring, so you will not see the fees on a monthly basis.

  • Insufficient funds – When the bank returns payments for insufficient funds, Progressive charges customers a fee of $20 per instance.
  • Late fees – Progressive provides customers with a payment due date. When payments are received past the due date, Progressive charges you a fee of $5 per instance. Online complaint forums state late payment fees can exceed $25.
  • Security deposit – The security deposit charged by Progressive depends on the number of installments you choose. If you choose to pay your Progressive bill twice per year, the security deposit is 30% of your monthly premium. If your installments are four times per year, your security deposit is 25% of your monthly premium. Making six yearly payments decreases your security deposit to 20% of your monthly premium.
  • Installment fee – When selecting the premium that matches your budget, an installment fee follows. The fee ranges from $1 to $5.

  1. I have really messed up this time. I don’t think anyone can help me and its my own fault. Let me say first that progressive is an amazing company. They have helped me through 2 wrecks. They were speedy, and very concerned for my well being. They have gave me plenty of time to pay my bill when I couldn’t make the due date every month. I have just had everything in past 3 months hit me. I put off the people that helped me so much. Now I am 2 months behind on my car insurance and its running into the renewal month witch that is one month you cannot be late. Now, 510 dollars later I canot find the money to pay it and I got til 12am tues nov 6th to pay it!!! So, just don’t be like me and put off the one company that always helped me. I have learned my lesson for real this time. Peace everyone.

  2. I think progressive Is messed business I go from older $175 my last payment to older 253 dollar I would never get nothing els from them I am so mad right now!!!
