For example, if you were separated or divorced last year but forgot that you were still paying a $600 premium based on a two-car family, choosing eligible for a sudden rate reduction to $250 (based on only your car) and a premium refund of $560. Should you have had neglected to educate insurance company for just two years, you’d be entitled to a $780 refund, etc.
