Do I have to pay insurance while my claim is being paid out?

You would not need to carry insurance on the car that was totaled. You should be able to remove the car at any time and the claim will still be processed.

Can I get my premium for car insurance when I never got the car?

Since the policy was active from August 31 through September 22, your son will be responsible to pay the premium on the policy. Every company has different rules and guidelines so there may be a fee for canceling the policy before the term is over.

If my Alabama registration tags expire, do I still have to carry insurance?

Alabama requires that registered vehicles must also be insured. If your registration tags expire and you want to renew them then you must have active auto insurance before the new tags will be issued.

What should I do with my insurance if my car is repossessed?

Since you no longer have possession of the vehicle then technically you could cancel your policy. It's important to keep in mind, though, that if you have been continuously insured for 6 months or more you will lose a discount if your policy cancels.

If I cancel a policy less than 24 hours after starting it, will I get a refund?

The state of Florida requires that insurance companies refund at least 90% of the unearned premium paid by a customer if they receive a request to cancel. There are instances where a company may include the policies fees within the first month so your refund can vary depending on which company you're with.

Can I back out of a claim if I've already notified my insurance company?

After your insurance provider is made aware of any damage caused to your vehicle it will be documented. That being said, if you are using uninsured motorist coverage for the claim, meaning the other driver was at fault but didn't have insurance, you shouldn't have to worry about an increase in your rate since you aren't at fault.

Eligibility

If I am storing my vehicle and canceling my insurance policy, will I have to turn my plates back into the state?

If your insurance policy will not include liability coverage, then it's likely that New Jersey will expect you to return the plates and registration. You may have the option to suspend your registration until you return, but you will need to contact your local MVC for specific details on your options.

Can my mom lower or cancel her insurance if she no longer plans to drive?

Unless there is a loan on the vehicle and the bank is requiring that she have physical damage coverage, she can carry the state minimum for the purpose of keeping the car legal. If she wants to completely cancel her policy then she would need to turn in the vehicle's registration tag to the state.

What if I filed a claim, decided I didn't want to go through with it, and hung up?

Unfortunately once you notify them of any sort of incident they will investigate it. You can check our State of Insurance report to get an average of the amount an accident will increase your rate by annually. If you experience a rate increase you can always shop around for a lower rate.
