What’s included on your Farmers insurance ID card

Your Farmers insurance ID card proves that you’re not an
uninsured motorist
, but it doesn’t go into great detail. On it, you’ll find the basics, including:
  • The name, logo, and address of the Farmers Insurance company
  • Farmers’ NAIC (National Association of Insurance Commissioners) number 
  • Your first and last name (under “named insured”) 
  • Your car’s make, model, and vehicle identification number (VIN)
  • The start and end dates of your policy
If you want a more in-depth look at your policy, you’ll need to look at the
declarations page
. It spells out just how much coverage you’re carrying, plus any deductibles and discounts that apply. 
Before you head to the photocopier, know that a declarations page can’t be used as proof of insurance, so put it in a safe place and keep your insurance ID card close at hand.

Can you show proof of insurance on your phone?

Yes, it’s legal to show proof of insurance on your phone in every state except
New Mexico
. So if you’re making a
Denver to Santa Fe road trip
, make sure you have a printed insurance ID card, just in case. 
If you’re on the road in any other state, feel free to pull out your phone and give the screen a few taps to pull up your info on request.

Where can I find my insurance information on the Farmers Signal app?

Farmers Signal app
doesn’t provide proof of insurance. It's a telematics app that records your speed, braking habits, cellphone usage, and more while you're driving. 
The Signal app is useful for netting car insurance discounts, but for identification purposes, you'll need the Farmers Mobile App.
