Coverage & Claims

Is my insurance still responsible for my vehicle theft after I canceled my policy?

As long as the claim happened during the duration of your policy, it is covered. You have no obligation to keep insurance until the payout occurs, so even if you've canceled it, your insurance is still responsible for processing the claim.

The driver of the at-fault vehicle claims the car was stolen

If she is claiming the car was stolen, a police report needs to be filed. Technically, the insurance company of the owner isn't responsible for the damages if the car was stolen.

What happens if a stolen vehicle is recovered before the insurance payout?

You need to report to the insurance company, that the car was recovered right away. The insurance should cover you for any damage that was caused, like having the keys stolen.

My car was stolen - what insurance do I need?

There seems to be some confusion on what coverage would be used to reimburse you for your stolen car! Yes, you're right: Uninsured motorist coverage would cover your car, if someone hits you that does not have insurance or in the event of a hit and run. This does not apply to a stolen car.
