Can you explain how car insurance payments work?
Specifically, I'm wondering if I have to pay all at once or in monthly installments.
Generally, it’s up to you. You can pay for car insurance in full upfront or go with monthly payments.
You might qualify for a discount if you pay in full, but this isn’t an option for some drivers who don’t have a lot of cash on hand.
If you choose monthly payments, you can have the money taken out of your account automatically so you don’t have to worry about it.

How can I get my renters insurance company to cover water heater damage?
"The condo I rent has an inadequately installed water heater that's caused damage to my unit and the unit below. The previous tenant installed it without getting permission from management. My insurer won't cover the damage because I didn't install the water heater. Now I'm on the hook for thousands in repair bills. Is there any way I can convince my insurer to provide some assistance?
