What does an insurability score of 813 mean?

We have an article that breaks down the insurance score. In short, a high insurability score means insurance companies should be very competitive in rates and you are an ideal — or "preferred" — customer.

Will my FICO points drop when I get a quote for car insurance?

What do I put in a quote if I don't have a credit history

Not having a credit history doesn't mean you have bad credit but it will take time to build credit. I suggest speaking directly with an agent and see what they suggest as it could be company specific.

Insurance without a credit history

Considering your age, your best bet for finding a company without a credit score is to speak directly with an agent or customer service rep. Like your driving record, your credit score can tell an insurance company a lot about you - including what kind of car insurance client you will be to them.

Can freezing your credit score affect your car insurance premium?

It's unlikely the freezing of your credit caused your premium to change - as freezing it doesn't affect your score and that's the only way your premium would adjust. Premiums, as a whole, have increased in 2018.

Are there car insurance companies that don't use credit?

Outside of the states of California, Hawaii, and Massachusetts, which do not allow credit to be used in insurance pricing, most companies will use credit to determine your rate. You might consider speaking with a local agent in your area about where you can find a company that doesn't use credit, but it may be difficult or even impossible to find a provider in your area.

Why does your fico score impact your insurance rate?

A credit score is a section of the overall "insurance score" that partially determines your insurance premium. The reason credit is used to determine rates in most states is due to the correlation between a driver's score and their likelihood to file a claim.
