Kemper Clear Choice Gets Different Offer

Yesterday, we posted the O&A letter Kemper had issued to participating Kemper Auto and Home Group glass shops. Some readers contacted us saying that they had different figures from what was in that letter. We were given a copy of one such letter and it is for the Kemper Auto and Home Group Clear Choice Claim Service and it is, indeed, a different letter with different rates. The following is a copy of the letter sent to Rate D and E shops in the Clear Choice program.
