I Can’t Make A Payment
Since you make a payment when you open the account, your insurance is paid one month in advance. This gives you 30 days before your insurance is canceled. It is important to make your payment because the law requires you to have car insurance. Find out what the minimum is in your state and drop your coverage limits if you have more than absolutely necessary.
