Auto Insurance bills can be a significant expense every month for most Americans and with many people not receiving a paycheck due to COVID - 19 several Auto Insurance Companies are stepping up to support those affected.
Many of us know the most serious consequence of missing a premium payment is a lapse in the policy or loss of coverage. This can pose a huge problem because if you continue to drive without insurance you will be breaking the law in New York State and you could be setting yourself up for financial failure.
It would be a grave mistake to assume that your Insurance Company is automatically offering relief and even more of a mistake to not know how they are offering this assistance.
For this reason, we have put together a list of Companies with specific links that explain how they are offering support to their clients.
Active policy holders with The Hartford may qualify for their "COVID-19 Personal Auto Payback Plan".

It is extremely important that you contact your Insurance Company to get the specific details of these programs especially if you didn't see them on the list above. Visit their website and be sure to look out for announcements. If you are contacting them via phone be prepared to wait longer than normal as they are experiencing a significantly higher call volume.
