Cancellation of a motor vehicle insurance policy governed by statute M.G.L.A. c. 175, § 113A(2) contains the twenty-day notice procedure to be followed when cancelling a policy. The twenty-day statute works with along with other provisions to make sure customers have enough time to bring their accounts current before their policies lapse. See Massachusetts Consumer Bill of Rights for Automobile Insurance as well as the Code of Massachusetts Regulations.
“Massachusetts customers should receive proper notice of auto insurance cancellations so they can determine an appropriate solution for continued coverage,” Attorney General Martha Coakley said. “Our office will continue to ensure that these providers are complying with state insurances laws, not prematurely pulling the plug on these policies.”
