What’s included on your Allstate insurance card

Your Allstate identification card is essentially proof of financial responsibility. It shows that you’re carrying the minimum amount of insurance coverage required by your state, along with: 
  • The name and address of your insurance company
  • Your insurance company’s NAIC (National Association of Insurance Commissioners) number 
  • Your Allstate
    policy number
  • Your full name
  • Your vehicle’s make, model, and vehicle identification number (VIN)
  • The effective date of your insurance policy 
  • The expiration date of your insurance policy
If you’re looking for specific insurance information, like your precise deductible or coverage limits, you’ll have to check out your
declarations page
. But be aware that your declarations page is not proof of insurance—unlike your insurance ID card. 

Can you show proof of insurance on your phone?

Yes—drivers are permitted to show electronic proof of insurance during traffic stops in all states except
New Mexico
. If you get pulled over by the police, all you have to do is pull up your insurance ID card on your Allstate mobile app. You can also download your ID card to your Apple Wallet for even quicker access—unless you’re driving through the Land of Enchantment. 
Along with physical insurance cards, many top insurance providers nowadays such as

State Farm
use digital identification cards. With an Allstate insurance policy, you can show proof of insurance either through the app or a traditional physical card.
