As a teen driver, how can I find affordable car insurance in Kentucky?
I'm moving out of my parents' house soon and I want to get my own car. I'm 19 and don't make that much money at my job, so I need affordable rates. What are my options?

“As a teen driver, your car insurance rates will likely be higher than older drivers, but there are at least two ways you can ensure you’re getting the best rates.
First, older cars will generally be cheaper, since they cost less to fix in the case of an accident. Some vehicle types are also cheaper to insure, such as sedans, vs. sports cars which often have much higher rates.
Second, you can compare rates from different companies to get the best quote. A licensed broker, Jerry does all the hard work of finding the cheapest quotes from the top name-brand insurance companies and buying new car insurance.
And to ensure you always have the lowest rate, Jerry will send you new quotes every time your policy comes up for renewal, so you’re always getting the coverage you want at the best price. “

Can I keep my insurance payout instead of rebuilding my house?
A tornado destroyed my house; there's really nothing left to fix. I only have $24,000 left on the mortgage and I don't feel like rebuilding from the ground up. Can I use the money from my insurance claim to pay off the mortgage and keep whatever cash is left over?

Why is getting a policy of my own so much more expensive than being a driver on another policy?
I was previously listed as a driver on my mom's insurance. Now she says I have to get my own insurance because I moved out. My new policy is over $1,300 for six months! Why is this so expensive?
