Finance Quick Answers
I can't get an auto insurance company to insure me. What can I do?
Missouri law requires auto liability insurance coverage, but some drivers find it difficult to find a company that will insure them. If you have trouble finding auto insurance, you may be able to get coverage through the Missouri Joint Underwriting Association (JUA). It is made up of all companies selling auto liability policies in Missouri.
Most agents or brokers will give you a JUA rate quote by phone if you ask about it, and most also can issue you immediate coverage. If you have trouble finding JUA assistance, call the Missouri Department of Insurance toll free at 800-726-7390.
