Does Wisconsin have minimum auto insurance coverage?

Yes. Minimum Wisconsin auto insurance requirements include these liability coverage limits:

  • $25,000 in bodily injury liability per person
  • $50,000 in total bodily injury per accident
  • $10,000 in property damage liability

Increasing your auto liability coverage makes sense if your assets exceed the state's minimum limits.

Does Wisconsin require uninsured motorist coverage?

Wisconsin requires uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage with the following limits:

  • $25,000 in uninsured motorist bodily injury per person
  • $50,000 in uninsured motorist bodily injury per accident

UM/UIM coverage can pay for injuries or damage caused to you by a driver with no insurance or not enough coverage.

Consider comprehensive and collision coverage

Adding physical damage coverages provides protection for a damaged or stolen vehicle. And if you lease or finance a car, most lenders require comprehensive and collision coverage.

Save more when you bundle your auto and home policies. Nationwide, drivers who switch and save with Progressive save over 20% per year on average.*
