Did you know insurance companies don’t just come up with arbitrary numbers for your premiums? Nor do they offer everyone the same policy. Nope. Much like financial lenders, insurance companies assess your risk (as a client) based on your insurance score.
Never heard of insurance scores? You’re not alone. You see, most people know that when they get a ticket or have an accident, their insurance rates are liable to go up. Did you know that those incidents will affect your insurance score as well?
So what is an insurance score? Scores are likely affected by a few key factors including:
-Existing credit issues
-Number of insurance score inquiries
