You might be wondering why you need a mobile application for insurance. There are many great services available through mobile applications including bill pay services, claims services and roadside assistance services.

Not all insurance companies offer mobile applications. If you are not sure, ask your insurance company if they offer this service and if there is a fee to sign up.
