Allstate to close Wisconsin claims center, 214 affected

By Becky Yerak

Allstate Corp. is closing a claims office in Cross Plains, Wis., to “be more efficient,” a spokesman for the Northbrook-based home and auto insurer confirmed Wednesday. 

Located outside of Madison, the facility has 214 workers.

Allstate said the workers could apply for 110 similar claims jobs that are open elsewhere nationwide, so the net job loss will be at least 104. 

Allstate said it has eight other offices like this one nationwide, and technology enables the company to handle claims elsewhere, an Allstate spokesman said.

 “There will be no net impact on customers,” he said.

 Allstate-branded policy counts have also been down in recent years.
