How to Lookup the Insurance Policy for My Car

When you are unable to locate or access your car insurance policy, one way to retrieve it is to contact your car insurance provider and request that a copy of your policy be mailed to you. If your policy information is needed right away, the mail option is not the best method to use. With the mail method, you will experience delay. As an alternative, you can use technology to retrieve your insurance policy immediately, with no waiting.

Step 1

Visit the website for your car insurance provider.

Step 2

Select the option to log into your account. The exact wording for this option will vary. For example, on the AllState site click "Customer Login." On the Geico site click "Manage Your Policy." For State Farm, click "Account Login." For Progressive click "Login."

Step 3

Click the "Register" option if you have never used your provider's online portal. To complete registration, your identity must be confirmed. This can be done by entering your policy number or other information, such as your driver's license number.

Step 4

Log into your account using your newly created username and password.

Step 5

Select the option to view the details of your policy. The exact wording for this option will vary. In some cases, you will also be able to make changes to your policy online.
