Question

Why did The General cancel my car insurance?

I bought a policy with them and just over a month later they cancelled my policy. They said something about 60 days, but I didn't understand. How can they cancel my policy when they took me on as a customer in the first place?

Insurance companies in many states have up to 60 days from the start date to cancel a policy without providing a reason for doing so. In most cases, this has to do with some sort of potential fraud or an inaccuracy on your application. It is extremely important to be open and honest about your driving history before submitting an application so you can avoid a cancellation, which can hurt your chances down the road of finding a new company.
