Hello, Cornhuskers. Ready to plow through some insurance information and harvest tidbits you can actually digest? If you’re looking for information regarding Nebraska car insurance state minimums, laws, discounts, and more, this guide has it all and more.
Nebraska Auto Insurance Requirements
There are two ways to drive legally in Nebraska: buy car insurance or put up money in the form of bonds, etc. Let’s start with the first: liability coverage. You’ll need three types of liability insurance to abide by the law in Nebraska: bodily injury, total bodily injury, and property damage. All three will have to have minimums of:
- $25,000 for bodily injury, per one person
- $50,000 for total bodily injury, per accident
- $25,000 for property damage
If you decide to go with the latter and put up money to show proof of financial responsibility in lieu of car insurance, you’ll have to pay $75,000 in the form of a:
- Property Bond
- Certificate of Deposit
- Certificate of Self Insurance
That’s a lot of money to float if you don’t need to. The average driver in Nebraska pays less than $800 a year for car insurance, so it makes more sense to go that route if you don’t want to pay out-of-pocket.
Why Car Insurance Costs What It Does In Nebraska
Car insurance is a risk calculation. Companies will look at your personal information to decide how likely you are to cost them money. The less risky you are as a driver, the lower your premiums will be. The higher the risk, the more you’ll pay. Expect to be asked about the following information when you’re getting a quote:
- Driving/claims record
