How do I tell if my car is insured?

I'm not sure if my insurance payments have been processed, so I’m unsure if my policy is still active. How can I double-check to see if my car is insured?

Answer
Good question! I’m happy to say that checking whether you have car insurance is very simple.
If you know some details about your policy, like your insurance company’s name and policy number, you can give your insurance representative a call to confirm that your policy is active. All the information you need should be listed on your insurance card.
You can also use your company’s online portal or mobile app to check policy details and make a payment towards your premium if you don’t feel like making a phone call.
Another option is to check your bank statements. Look for recurring charges from your insurance company. If you find these, it’s likely that you’re being charged for an active policy and your vehicle is covered.
If your car isn’t insured, you should get a new policy as soon as possible, since driving without insurance is illegal in most states. To do this easily, check out the Jerry app—we’ll get you personalized quotes from the nation’s top providers so you can find a new policy for a great price. And once you find one, we’ll even help you switch!
Best of luck!
