Ask the Insurance Company if there is anyway they will reinstate and see what happens. Check your ACTUAL policy and see if you have any protections or guarantees.

You own your home you stopped paying for home insurance. will i have problem restablishing a home insurance?

If your previous home insurance policy was cancelled for non-payment, the company you were insured with may choose not to reinstate the policy depending on your history with the company. While this company does not have to reinstate your policy, you will be able to bind insurance with another provider. If this company asks if you have been cancelled previously for non-payment, answer honestly. This will not disqualify you for obtaining insurance, however it may disqualify you from receiving a continuous coverage discount if they offer it.

Your home insurance was not paid by the mortgage bank last month The insurance policy has been cancelled Does the bank have to insure you now?

The bank must make payments of these items from the account on time, if you kept an escrow account with the bank and carried out regular deposits for the taxes and insurance payment. If the bank does not pay the insurance premium on time and the insurance policy is cancelled, the bank must either get in touch with the insurance company and make them reinstate the policy, or buy a policy with another company. Nevertheless, within this time you keep being liable for continuing the insurance payment through your escrow account.

Can you reinstate your car insurance for non payment?

You are asking if you can reinstate you auto insurance if it cancelled for non-payment. Often times you can. It is up to the policies of the individual insurance carrier that you are dealing with and the state laws as well. In Georgia, insurance companies must mail you a 10 day notice of cancellation if you did not pay on the due date. After this cancellation date on the notice you have no coverage. Often times the insurance company will reinstate without a lapse if you come in within a few days and sign a "Statement of No-Loss" which states that you have not had an accident or loss since the date of cancellation. Different companies have their own policy on how many days that they will still reinstate. One factor to watch is that on the renewal date of the policy you do not get this 10 day notice, the day after renewal your coverage ceases. Sometimes they will still allow you to renew but they don't have to.

What should you do if after a car accident your insurance company claims they did not receive your payment and sent you a cancellation notice but you did not receive it?

Several answers apply here. First did you move and if so did you send your insurance company a change of address? Secondly did the accident take place before or after the effective date of cancellation? Insurance companies don't have to prove you received the cancellation notice, they only have to prove they mailed the cancellation to the last known address you provided them. If you move and do not send them a change of address, you are in trouble. Lastly, did you pay the insurance premium for which they cancelled you? If so produce your cashed check and they will have to reinstate your policy by most state laws. If you did not pay as required, then they cancelled you for non payment, and in all likelihood you are cancelled and have no coverage. If the accident took place before the date of cancellation, go see an attorney.

Can insurance agency reinstate a cancelled policy without insured's approval?

If you have requested cancellation of your policy then it would not be appropriate to reinstate it without an additional request from you so long as required notices of discontinutaion of coverage have been made to all interested parties.. There are times when it would be appropriate and in the best interest of the insured to automatically reinstate a policy without an additional request from you to do so. Especially if there is an express or implied desire for continuation of the coverage such as if an overdue payment is received after a policy lapse. Other Insured Parties such as Lienholders and Mortgage companies can also require an insurer to continue coverage for a specified period of time. Another insured parties interests could require the insurer to reinstate a policy until such time as they have been properly notified.
