What will happen to car insurance for my wife if I die?

"I am the policyholder. I want to make sure she's covered in the event that something happens."

“Most car insurance companies write policies with married couples in mind, and the surviving spouse will inherit the policy.
Your wife will likely need to submit documentation (like a death certificate or other estate documents) to initiate this process, but each company does it differently. If you’d like to know about your company’s specific policy, it’s best to contact an agent directly.”
