What Is Auto Insurance?
Auto insurance is a contractual agreement between you and the insurer. In exchange for your premium payments, the insurer agrees to provide coverage as set forth under your policy should you experience a covered loss. It can help provide coverage for repairing or replacing your vehicle, third-party bodily injuries or property damage you may cause in an accident, and medical bills you may incur. However, auto insurance policies vary, and you may be able to add endorsements to your policy to gain optional coverages, such as GAP coverage, glass coverage or roadside assistance, to round out your policy.
What Auto Insurance Is Required By Law?
In New Jersey, drivers are required to carry at least a Basic Policy, as made possible by the Automobile Insurance Cost Reduction Act. However, this policy provides very basic levels of coverage and may not cover you adequately should you experience a loss. Work with your Twin Rivers Benefits Consultants agent today to better understand your insurance obligations under the New Jersey law and find a policy that’s right for you.
How Do Auto Insurance Claims Work?
If you experience a covered loss during your policy’s term, you may want to consider filing a claim to help cover the costs you’ve incurred. The claims process varies depending on your plan and the loss you’ve experienced. To find out more about what the claims process may entail working with our agency, call Twin Rivers Benefits Consultants.
How Do Auto Insurance Deductibles Work?
An auto insurance deductible is the out-of-pocket amount you’re responsible for when you file specific claims. You generally can choose the amount of your deductible, and higher deductibles typically translate to lower premiums. However, if you experience a loss and have chosen a higher deductible, you’ll have higher out-of-pocket costs before insurance steps in.
Deductibles are applicable only on certain types of coverages, such as collision, comprehensive, personal injury protection, and uninsured motorist coverage. Unlike health insurance deductibles, auto insurance deductibles are paid on a claim-by-claim basis—every time you file a claim during your policy period, you may have to pay your deductible for each claim.
