What is a "household member" in terms of car insurance? Do I need to put everyone in my house on my plan?

Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert

For a car insurance policy, “household members” most often refers to people who reside in the home and have their license. If they are of driving age and they have their license, the insurance company will want to add them to the policy as drivers. If they have their own insurance and you are able to show proof of this, you may not have to add them to the policy.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
