Can you be forced to pay for car insurance for adult children?
I have two adult children in my household. They both have a driver's license but they never drive my SUV. Can I be forced to pay for their car insurance anyway?
You should have the option of excluding your children from your policy since they don’t drive your SUV, but every car insurance company has their own rules. Some may have more restrictions regarding licensed drivers in a single household.
If your company won’t allow you to exclude your children, then you may want to shop around to find a more accommodating insurer. You shouldn’t have to pay for coverage for a pair of drivers who never drive your SUV.

Do I need medical payments coverage on both my motorcycle and auto policies?
Wouldn't I just have double coverage since I already have it on my auto policy? It's more expensive to carry it on my motorcycle. I also have health insurance, so do I need medical payments coverage at all?

Can I list my son on my car insurance policy only during certain times?
My son is away at college and we are selling his vehicle. I would like to remove him from our policy, but the insurance company has said that we are required to list him as a household member. I do need him to still be covered during school breaks when he is home, so I don't want to exclude him. Is there a way to do this while saving money?
