Geico no longer offers personal locations in California to purchase auto and home insurance, the company’s website reveals.
The American insurance giant, which until recently had offices across Los Angeles, including an office that opened in Burbank just last year, now lists zero available agents in California.
The Sacramento Bee reported Monday that Geico had closed all of its offices in the state, resulting in more than 100 layoffs. The insurer’s website showed no available locations or agents as of Tuesday morning.
Locations in Santa Monica, Hawthorne, Burbank and Torrance, all of which were recently open, were all listed online as “permanently closed”.
Headquartered in Maryland, Geico, founded in 1936, is one of the nation’s largest auto and homeowner insurance companies.
Geico did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
