Should you pay for full coverage?
There is no set rule of when to eliminate comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the annual cost of coverage is more than about 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, then it might be time to buy liability only.
For example, let's assume your Kia Optima claim settlement value is $9,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most your company will settle for is $8,000 after you pay the deductible. If premium cost is more than $800 a year for your policy with full coverage, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.
There are some cases where dropping full coverage is not financially feasible. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you have to keep full coverage to protect the lienholder's interest in the vehicle. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle in the even your car is totaled, you should not buy liability only.
