Cost estimates assume married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Indiana minimum liability limits.

Does full coverage make sense?

When to drop full coverage

There is no definitive rule of when to phase out comp and collision coverage, but there is a guideline you can consider. If the yearly cost of full coverage is about 10% or more of the replacement cost minus the deductible, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.

For example, let's pretend your Dodge Ram 3500 book value is $9,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, you would only receive $8,000 after you pay the deductible. If you are paying in excess of $800 annually for full coverage, then it could be time to drop full coverage.

There are some conditions where buying only liability insurance is not recommended. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you have to maintain full coverage in order to keep the loan. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is damaged, you should not consider dropping full coverage.
