Car Insurance Coverage and Deductible Options


What is a deductible?
A deductible is the part of a covered loss that you have agreed to pay with your own money.

If you file a claim against your insurance, you will pay only the amount of the deductible.

When choosing a deductible, you must decide how much you would be willing and able to pay out-of-pocket, if you ever had to file a claim.

Typically, higher deductibles mean lower premiums.



Who does my auto insurance policy cover?
An Auto Insurance policy typically covers:

You and your spouse
Relatives who live in your home
Other licensed drivers who have permission to drive your insured vehicle.


Types of auto insurance coverage
An Auto Insurance policy generally consists of several kinds of coverage's.

Because all 50 states have different laws when it comes to Auto Insurance, the following coverage descriptions are simply general information. They are not statements of contract.

To learn more about auto insurance in your state, contact your Insurance agent.



Most Common Coverage's:

Auto liability coverage falls into two categories:
