New Hampshire Auto Insurance Policy Requirements

Q: What is in a basic New Hampshire auto insurance policy?
A: When purchasing a New Hampshire auto insurance policy, you will encounter these main types of auto insurance that can be added to it:

  1. Liability Coverage
    1. Property damage and injury to people are addressed separately when working with insurance. Liability insurance is thus divided into two kinds:
      1. Bodily Injury Liability Coverage
      2. Property Damage Liability Coverage
    2. Minimum liability coverage in New Hampshire is:
      1. $25,000 for injury/death to one person.
      2. $50,000 for injury/death to more than one person.
      3. $25,000 for damage to property.
      4. Also known as “25/50/25” (New Hampshire’s minimum auto insurance requirement)
    3. Liability minimums differ for leased vehicles.
  2. Collision Coverage is a requirement when your vehicle is financed (not completely paid for). Otherwise, it is a recommended option though it is a not a requirement for your New Hampshire auto insurance policy.
  3. Comprehensive Coverage is – like collision coverage – only required when your vehicle is financed, and is otherwise a noncompulsory part of a New Hampshire auto insurance policy.
  4. Medical Payments Coverage is not required but recommended for a New Hampshire auto insurance policy.
  5. Uninsured (and Underinsured) Motorist Coverage is required to be included in your auto insurance policy by New Hampshire state law.
