How can I find out who my insurance company is?

Is there a way to find out who my current insurance company is? I was in a bit of a fender-bender last week, unfortunately, and I couldn't find any of my policy information. I thought I was with GEICO, but they said I hadn't had a policy with them in over a year. How could this happen? And how can I find out who my actual company is?

I’m so sorry about your fender-bender; I hope you’re all right! It could be that you are with a different insurance company, or that your policy with GEICO didn’t renew and that you need to start a new policy ASAP!
Before you do that, though, make sure you’ve looked in all of the usual places for your ID card. These include:
  • Glovebox
  • Center console
  • Driver side mirror
  • Wallet or purse
  • Pile of unopened mail by the front door
If you haven’t located it there, check your email and go through online bank statements to see when was the last time you made an insurance payment. Then, call the last company you see listed. If they state you don’t have a policy, get car insurance quotes online right away! You won’t be covered for the accident you just had, but you will be protected moving forward.
If you do need to find a new policy, the fastest way to do so is through the Jerry app. Jerry searches for the lowest insurance rates with over 50 companies and delivers personalized options straight to your phone. (You can also store your ID and proof of insurance in the app’s wallet function, so you’ll never have to worry about losing it again!)
Best of luck—hopefully you find an insurer quickly and easily!
