Is uninsured motorist property damage coverage required in Vermont?
I live in Vermont and my insurance policy has UMPD. Do I need this coverage or is it optional?
“Vermont requires that you carry $10,000 in combined uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage property damage.
This coverage pays for damage to your vehicle and other property caused by an uninsured or underinsured driver. In VT, this coverage has a $150 deductible, but the deductible does not apply if you have collision coverage on the policy.
Because this type of insurance only covers damages to your vehicle when the at-fault driver is uninsured or underinsured, you should also consider maintaining collision coverage on your policy. “
