Do I need uninsured motorist property damage coverage and collision coverage on my vehicle in Nebraska?
I'm finding conflicting information. Some carriers seem to allow me to have both uninsured motorist property damage and collision on a policy, and others don't. Some people have also recommended having both.
“In Nebraska, the minimum car insurance requirements include uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, specifically uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury. But you are not required by law to carry uninsured motorist property damage coverage.
However, it is beneficial to carry it. Should you be in an accident with an at-fault, uninsured driver, your insurance would cover the damage done to your vehicle up to your specified limit.
With collision coverage, any damage caused by a collision would be covered, even if you are at fault.
Some carriers don’t allow you to have both coverages on a policy, as they cover similar events. You can also be required to have uninsured motorist property damage on your policy if you don’t have collision coverage.
If your carrier does allow you to have both coverages and you can afford both, it can’t hurt to buy the extra coverage.

What can happen if I spend the auto insurance settlement money that's supposed go to my lienholder?
The entire amount of my insurance settlement was deposited into my bank account instead of going to my lienholder. I was owed a portion of it, but I'm wondering what would happen if I just spent it. I could really use the money right now.

Are private-party car loans always more expensive than dealership loans?
"I got pre-approved for a 36-month loan at 3.9%. But when I went to the bank to get the cashier's check, they told me that because I'm not buying from a dealer, my interest rate would change. With a credit score of 680, they told me that they could give me a loan to buy from a private seller, but the rate would be 16.5%. To me, this seems ridiculous."
