Why would an insurance company drop you?
Would insurance really cancel our policy if we don't change the address after moving? My girlfriend and I moved recently and when we tried to change the address on our Progressive insurance policy, the rate increased. I think we should keep the address at our old place to save money, but she keeps saying the insurance company can drop us if they find out.
