“Kentucky is one state that does allow stacking of uninsured motorist coverage. However, stacking typically only applies to car insurance policies that have at least two vehicles on them.
If you are only insuring one vehicle and want higher levels of uninsured motorist coverage, you’ll need to raise your coverage limits. However, unstacked coverage typically costs less as you are only insuring one vehicle and you can adjust your coverage limit as needed.
With stacked insurance, your coverage limits would be combined if you get in an accident with an uninsured motorist. This means if you have two vehicles with $50,000 of coverage, you would have coverage up to $100,000 in an accident.
Since you need to have multiple vehicles on a policy, stacked coverage will be more expensive. You won’t have the ability to alter coverage as much as you could with a single vehicle.

Do car dealerships sell your loan to other lenders?
Is it true that car dealerships sell your loan? I've heard that the reason that car dealers want you to finance with them is because they sell your loan.
