• NJ Agents, brokers and companies must inform you of your coverage options when applying for a new policy, or at any time upon your request if you are already insured. You have the right to know how each choice may affect what you pay and what your benefits would be in the event of an accident. You always have the right to ask about additional options.
• You can shop for NJ Car insurance at any time – not just when your policy is up for renewal, and if you find a better price, you can cancel your old policy and seek a refund of your unused premium payments made.
• You have the right to change your coverage’s and policy limits at any time, even if you are not near your renewal date. If you select options that save you money, you have a right to a refund of your unused premium within 60 days.
There are two common types of auto insurance policies in New Jersey. They are referred to as STANDARD and BASIC. Both offer options as well.
STANDARD POLICY — The NJPAIP Standard Policy provides a number of different coverage options and the opportunity to buy additional protection. The Standard Policy is the type of policy chosen by most New Jersey drivers.
BASIC POLICY — The NJPAIP Basic Policy usually costs significantly less than a Standard Policy, but provides limited benefits. It is not for everyone, but it does provide enough coverage to meet the minimum insurance requirements of New Jersey law. The Basic Policy could be an option for those with few family responsibilities and few assets to protect (including income from a job).
