Car crash and no insurance — what do I do?
I got into a car crash. I'm not at fault, but I don't have insurance. The other driver does have insurance. What are my options?

Sorry to hear about your accident. If you are not at fault, you still need to file an insurance claim through the other driver’s policy. You may be ticketed for driving with no insurance, but this will not affect your ability to get a payout from the other driver’s insurance company.

As a soldier, can I keep my car insurance policy in my resident state or do I have to switch my insurance to where I'm stationed?
I completed boot camp in Texas (my resident state) and moved to Maryland. I have car insurance through a Texas policy. Since I'm in the military, can I keep my Texas policy or do I have to switch my insurance to where I'm stationed? I want to buy a car in Maryland so it would have Maryland plates.

Why can't I get gap insurance on my USAA car loan?
I'm trying to get gap insurance on my new car loan. The dealership is saying that they can't add it because I'm going to be getting financing through USAA. Is this true? Do I need to find another bank if I want to add gap insurance?
