How do I add someone to my car insurance policy?
My relative recently had a fender bender in my vehicle, but he wasn't covered. He really needs my vehicle to get to work, so banning him from my vehicle isn't really an option. How do I add someone to my car insurance policy?

“Before you add someone to your car insurance policy, ask yourself if it’s truly the right move for you. They’ve already had an accident while uninsured, leaving you responsible for damages.
If you decide that you really want to add them to your policy, make sure to check car insurance quotes online. This will give you some insight into the added cost, as well as whether your relative has any high-risk factors (DUI, speeding ticket, etc.).
If adding them is cost-feasible, you’ll need to contact your current insurance agency and supply them with the information of the second driver, including the name, date of birth, gender, and tickets/accidents within the past five to seven years. “

"If I get a business insurance policy to cover the small business I run out of my house, will I have to pay more for homeowners insurance? "
My home policy doesn't cover my business, so I need to get a separate policy for that. But I'm wondering if I'll be charged more for home insurance as a result.

What should I do if my car insurance company gives me the runaround after I file a claim?
I was in a no-fault accident. When I called my insurer to file a claim, they told me they needed the police report first. I got the report and sent it in two weeks later due to some clerical errors by the police. After calling my insurer several times, I still haven't heard a definitive answer on the status of my claim.
