Do insurance companies check your educational status?

Do insurers pay attention to education? I recently completed a Master's degree and am wondering if my higher educational status will affect my rates at all.

Car insurance companies look at many factors when calculating your insurance rates, which may include:
  • age
  • location
  • marital status
  • type of vehicle
  • driving history
  • education
Since car insurance companies use statistics to help understand risk, an advanced degree may mean you’re paying less than a driver with less education, with all other factors being equal.
This is because drivers with advanced degrees are less likely to file claims than those without.”
