How do I change my address in my car insurance policy?

I just moved recently and need to update my address in my car insurance policy. How do I change my address?

Moving can be a hectic time, it is great that you are staying on top of your insurance! You can change your address on your car insurance policy by either:
  • Calling your agent directly, or
  • Logging into your providers’ account and updating your new address there
Keep in mind that a change in your address may also affect your car insurance rates. Car insurance rates are calculated based on your location. If your commute to and from work has gotten longer or you have a higher estimated annual mileage, this can also increase your rates.
If your rates increase, don’t worry! Have your agent review your policy for the following applicable discounts:
  • Defensive Driver discounts
  • Telematics discounts
  • Alumni association discounts
  • Professional organization discounts
  • Low mileage savings
If you are still unhappy with your rates, it might be time to shop for a cheaper insurance policy. Anytime a significant life change happens, like moving, it is good to re-evaluate your insurance needs anyway.
If you’re shopping for car insurance, you can use the Jerry app that will compare rates from the top companies for you in under a minute. Jerry gathers your information from your past insurer, so you’re not responsible for any long forms or phone calls. Basically, you get all of the savings and coverage, with none of the hassles.
