Question

What is a letter of acceptance?

I am 20 years old and in the process of switching to a new insurance company. I paid for my new policy and cancelled the old one. My new insurance company told me ask my old provider for a letter of experience to show proof that I was insured. Why can't I just send in my old insurance card?

While your old insurance card will show your most recent policy term, a letter of experience will provide your new insurance company with additional details from your old policy. This is usually because your new company is providing a hefty discount for the fact that you were maintaining insurance coverage prior to the start of your new policy. This is a fairly normal, and simple, request. Contact your old provider and give them an email address or fax number of your new company and they should be able to submit your proof quickly.
