How can I change the name on my car insurance policy?

My husband and I just got married and we're in the process of updating everything with his last name. How do I change the name on my car insurance policy?

Congratulations on your marriage! First, you will need to change the name on your driver’s license. Then you can change the name on your car insurance policy by calling your insurer or going online.
To properly change your name, follow these steps:
  • File a name change with the Social Security Administration.
  • File a name change with the DMV. Along with your driver’s license, you may be required to show:
  • Your new Social Security card
  • Your marriage certificate
  • Your certified birth certificate
  • Financial documents
  • Contact your insurance company over the phone or online to update your policy. You’ll be asked for some kind of verification, such as:
  • Your policy number (found on your insurance card)
  • Your date of birth
  • Your online login information
If you’re looking for a new policy altogether, Jerry can compare quotes from over 50 of the nation’s leading insurance companies to get you the best rate.
Enjoy life as a newlywed!
