A variety of factors make car insurance rates more painful in some states than others.  For instance, the number of insurers competing for business, driving conditions, the portion of drivers who are uninsured, and the way state insurance systems are set up.  The highest average car insurance rates in the nation are Louisiana, Michigan and Georgia.  Louisiana ranks the highest with an average annual premium of $2,669.  Maine held the bottom position with an average annual premium of $934.  Texas faired close to the middle holding up the 19th position with an average annual premium of $1,545.  So, the next time you fret over paying your car insurance bill just be thankful you're not residing in Louisiana!

When preparing to send your child to college be sure to review:

1.  Their college essay

2.  Your bank account

3.  The film "Animal House"

4.  Their insurance coverage

If you selected insurance coverage, you go to the head of the class.  When your child moves from home to college there are a number of insurance questions to consider, especially if he or she is planning to live off-campus.  Remember, not all insurance policies have the same terms and conditions.  Consult your Agent to determine the limits and types of coverage that apply to your family's lifestyle.

Insurance companies consider college students living in dorms to be residents of their parents' home.  They also consider your dorm-room contents to be "personal property, located off premises".  Most homeowners/renters policies limit coverage up to 10 percent of personal property, off premises.  Now if your college student lives off-campus, most insurance companies consider this to be a permanent residence.  Therefore, the apartment will not be covered under the parents' homeowners/renters policy for contents or liability.
