Uninsured & Underinsured Motorist

Updated January 1, 1 . AmFam Team

Twenty-two states in the U.S. require drivers to carry some form of underinsured or uninsured motorist coverage. Even if you live in one of the other twenty-eight states, it’s important to understand the worth of underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage when 1 in 8 drivers are uninsured or don’t have enough insurance.

Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage may not be required in your state, but that doesn’t mean it’s not important to have. Having the right coverages in place can keep you financially protected and provide peace of mind when you hit the road. Connect with your American Family Insurance agent (Opens in a new tab) to add uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage to your policy.
