How do I find the insurer of a car?

I just got a divorce from my husband. He handled the insurance for my car, but now I don’t know if I have an active policy. How do I find the insurer of a car?

I know there’s likely a lot happening in your life right now, but thankfully, there are several ways to find the insurer of your car.
  • Check your bank statements: A recurring charge has likely been taken out of your bank account every month to pay for your insurance. You can scan your recent and past transactions for charges from major car insurance providers, like Allstate or Progressive. This can help you identify the name of your insurer so you can contact them and get more details about your policy.
  • Check correspondence from your insurance company: Check your email or standard mail that may list the name of the insurer. Searching key terms in your email like car insurance or
  • *car insurance policy** can help track down your insurer.
  • Check policy documents: If you have an insurance card in your car, you can find the name of your insurer that way. It may even list your policy term dates. Check your glovebox or anywhere you may keep important documents. A policy declaration page or other proof of insurance would work as well.
