Declaring stolen cash in a car insurance claim?
My car was broken into and the thief took some cash that was left in a bag in the backseat. Can I claim that cash through my auto insurance?
Sorry to hear about your lost money. When personal property is stolen from your car, it is typically not covered by your auto policy. Instead, you need property insurance for this kind of loss.
Property insurance can be found in homeowners or renters policies. However, it can be hard to prove that money was taken, and most property policies have a payout limit for stolen cash. Typically this limit falls around $200.

Will my auto insurance company give me a refund since I was able to find a lower rate elsewhere?
My renewal for insurance just came up and the price increased. I got a quote from Safeco and it's significantly less than what I'm paying with Farmers. I called my agent and they said they could rewrite my policy to give me a lower rate. Will we get a refund for overpaying? Shouldn't my agent have been shopping around for me previously?

Do car dealerships always verify your income?
Do car dealers always verify your income when you apply for a car loan? I'm in the market for a car, but I'm also in between jobs. I should have a new job lined up soon, but I haven't had any income other than unemployment for three months.
