Getting an Insurance Refund

Written by Michele Wilmonen. Posted in Ask An Insurance Question Last Updated: 01/20/2016

Can you get an insurance refund from a  down payment you already paid?

Q:  I renewed my insurance with U.S. agencies and I put a down payment of 152.00 down on Jan. 7…. Now on Jan 12 I got another policy with state farm for a cheaper price and more coverage….Am I entitled to get my 152.00 back from Us Agencies????

A: It all depends on your renewal date.

If your renewal date is after January 12th, then yes you are entitled to the full insurance refund of $152.00 back (minus any fees the old company charges). If your renewal date was before January 12th, then you won’t get the full $152.00 back, your old company will instead pro-rate your insurance refund for the days you were not covered by them.
