“I’m afraid the answer to this question is no. While there are some state programs that help low-income earners access car insurance, no such program currently exists in Alabama.
If you want to pay less for car insurance, here are some suggestions:
- Reduce your coverage, especially if you drive an older car that might not require collision and comprehensive coverage.
- Raise your deductible. Premiums and deductibles have an inverse relationship, so if one goes up, the other usually goes down.
- Contact your insurance company to make sure you qualify for all their available discounts.
- Shop around for better rates. You can get started with Jerry, a free app that collects quotes from up to 45 top insurance companies in seconds!”

I hit a car in Tacoma, and my insurance covers $10,000 for property damage liability. However, the car is worth $22,000. Am I on the hook for the additional $12,000?

"Should I take out a longer loan on a $30,000 car for smaller monthly payments? "
"I was talking to the dealership about auto financing options for a $30,000 car. The salesman said he can get me approved for a 60-month loan at $560 per month or a 72-month loan at $470 per month. The interest rate is the same at 1.75%. I could use some extra money each month to pay down some of my other debt, but I know it will cost me more in the long run. Should I go with the shorter loan or the longer one? "
