Can I change my address to a new state during the policy term, or do I have to wait until the renewal?
I am moving to Kentucky at the end of this month for a new job. I just started my GEICO policy last week for my current state of Utah. Can I change my policy now or do I have to wait until my renewal?

“Congratulations on your new job! Don’t worry, you do not need to wait till the end of your policy term to change your address, and nor would you want to.
Each state has different insurance requirements, and you wouldn’t want to be driving around without the appropriate coverage for your new state.
Get in touch with your agent to update your GEICO policy effective on the date of your move. This way, you will have the updated ID card, which you will need to get the vehicle re-registered with the Kentucky DMV.
Also, check to make sure you follow all the plate requirements for Utah. Some states allow you to keep the plates and some need you to submit them back to the DMV.”

How will a minor at-fault accident affect my insurance premium?
I lightly rear-ended a car on the freeway with my Honda Civic; I barely saw a scratch on either vehicle. There were no obvious injuries, though the other driver complained that his neck hurt. Aside from this accident, I have a pretty clean record. How much could my monthly premium rise?

How much will my liability auto insurance pay out in damages if I have a 50/100/15 policy?
I got into an accident in a parking lot and the damage was pretty bad. Another car was involved and there was damage to the storefront. It was my fault and I am worried that I will have to pay what my insurance won’t.
