What is a car insurance declarations page?

An Auto Insurance Policy Declarations summarizes your policy and the coverages, limits and deductibles you've chosen to purchase. It can also list the insured vehicles, insured drivers and dates your policy is effective as well as any discounts you received.

You'll receive a new Declarations every renewal period, which is normally every six months.
