If you currently hold an auto insurance policy in Arizona, changes are headed your way. Beginning July 1, Arizona’s minimum limit for auto insurance liability will increase from $15,000/$30,000/$10,000 to $25,000/$50,000/$15,000, due to Arizona SB 1087.
Breaking down the minimum insurance coverage limits
Minimum limit requirements contain three numbers. In Arizona’s case, the first two numbers, $25,000/$50,000, refer to bodily injury coverage and represent how much your insurance provider will pay for medical expenses of individuals injured, legal fees, loss of income, and possibly more for an accident you cause. The first number ($25,000) represents the maximum amount your insurance company will pay out for each individual injured in the accident. The second number ($50,000) represents the maximum amount your insurance will pay out for people injured in the accident, regardless of how many individuals are injured.
The third number, $15,000, known as property damage liability, represents the maximum amount your insurance provider will pay for property damage you cause to another person’s property in an accident.
What this means for you if you hold an Arizona auto insurance policy
As a result of this minimum policy limit increase, you’ll have a higher level of coverage on the road. So, if you get into an accident, you and the other driver will both have more protection.
If you currently carry the minimum required insurance in Arizona, expect to see an automatic change to your policy after its renewal following July 1. This could also mean that you’ll see a payment increase as a result of the higher level of coverage required.
What this means for you if you’re going to purchase an Arizona car insurance policy
If you purchase a new policy on or after July 1, you’ll be required to purchase at least $25,000/$50,000/$15,000 coverage to adhere to the new limit.
