Coverage Requirements

New York state requires its residents to purchase certain minimum car insurance amounts to satisfy the financial responsibilities of owning and operating a car. These coverages include:

  • Personal Injury Protection (PIP)-Also called "no-fault" insurance. Designed to pay medical expenses and lost earnings for a driver or passenger injured in or by your car, regardless of who is at fault. PIP insurance can be purchased up to a maximum of $50,000.
  • Bodily Injury Liability-Protects you against claims alleging your negligence or fault in an accident. State-mandated minimums are $25,000/$50,000, with limits of $50,000/$100,000 respectively in the event of death.
  • Uninsured Motorists-Provides bodily injury protection for you and your family members, as well as anyone to whom you give permission to drive your car. Required minimums are the same as those for bodily injury liability.
  • Property Damage Liability-Insures against damage to another person's car or property. State-mandated minimum is $10,000.

    • Cancellation/Nonrenewal

      New York car insurance companies are not allowed to cancel or nonrenew your car insurance policy once it is in force for 60 days unless your driver's license is suspended, you do not pay your premium, or you commit fraud through misrepresentation. Notice of mid-term cancellation must be sent at least 20 days prior to its effective date, and must list the reason/s for your policy's termination.

      A recent change in New York law also requires that any cancellation due to nonpayment clearly state the amount outstanding.

      New York car insurance renewal periods occur once a year. By state law, your New York insurer must renew your policy unless giving you at least 45 to 60 days advance written notice of its intention not to do so.
