“In Oregon, all drivers are required to carry $15,000 in personal injury protection coverage. This is in addition to the other state minimum car insurance requirements.
Apart from PIP, South Dakota and Oregon have similar insurance requirements. While there are a variety of factors that go into insurance rates, you ideally won’t see too much of an increase if you choose to keep the same coverages.
If your insurance does increase significantly when you move, you could look into carrying liability car insurance only or shopping around. While you may have had a good rate with your current insurance carrier in South Dakota, you may be able to find a better rate with someone else in Oregon.

Will I lose my accident forgiveness if I am involved in a not at-fault accident?
Can I love accident forgiveness if I'm not at fault? I have been accident-free for 15 years and have earned free accident forgiveness on my policy. The other day, someone rear-ended my car while I was at a traffic light. It was deemed not at-fault, but I am worried this incident will make me lose my accident forgiveness benefit.

When is a good time to lower my coverage limits? My vehicle is a 2015 Jeep Compass and my policy limits are 100/300/50. I have had the same coverage on this policy since the day I bought the Jeep six years ago.
