Is uninsured motorist coverage required in Georgia?
Georgia requires insurers to offer uninsured motorist bodily injury (UMBI) and uninsured motorist property damage (UMPD) coverage with the following minimum limits:
- UMBI: $25,000 per person, $50,000 per accident
- UMPD: $25,000 with a $250, $500, or $1,000 deductible
Note: You can reject these coverages. UMBI covers medical expenses for you and your passengers if a driver hits you without insurance. UMPD pays for damage caused to your vehicle by an uninsured driver. As with liability coverage, consider higher insurance limits for these coverages to protect your family's financial well-being better. Learn more about uninsured motorist coverage.
