Mississippi Auto Insurance Policy Requirements

Q: What is in a basic Mississippi auto insurance policy?

A: Consumers can add these main options to their Mississippi auto insurance policy:

  1. Liability Coverage
    1. Since property and people are completely separate insurance concepts, liability insurance is divided into two types:
      1. Bodily Injury Liability Coverage
      2. Property Damage Liability Coverage
    2. Liability coverage is required in Mississippi. To legally drive in Mississippi, one must have a valid driver’s license and also the minimum of liability coverage in his or her auto insurance policy:
      1. 25/50/25” (Mississippi’s minimum auto insurance requirement)
      2. $25,000 for injury/death to one person.
      3. $50,000 for injury/death to two or more people.
      4. $25,000 for property damage.
    3. Liability minimums are different for vehicles that are leased.
  2. Collision Coverage is a legal requirement when your vehicle is financed (not completely paid for). It is optional for your Mississippi auto insurance policy if the vehicle is not financed.
  3. Comprehensive Coverage, similar to collision, is only required if you are still paying off your vehicle. If the vehicle has been fully financed, and is thus paid for, comprehensive is not required in your Mississippi auto insurance policy.
  4. Medical Payments Coverage is advisable to include in a Mississippi auto insurance policy though it is not required.
  5. Uninsured (and Underinsured) Motorist Coverage is not required in Mississippi.
  6. Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Coverage is not a required policy under Mississippi state law.
  7. Other Options for your Auto Insurance Policy
    1. Towing Coverage
    2. Rental Coverage
    3. Loan/Lease Gap Coverage
