No, the military does not pay for car insurance. Military personnel are required to purchase their own car insurance coverage, though most major auto insurance companies offer discounts and special services for military service members, making it easy to find affordable and flexible coverage.
Members of the military are still required to purchase enough car insurance coverage to fulfill their state’s car insurance requirements. If you will be storing your car during deployment, you can temporarily cancel your coverage as long as you turn in your license plates or file an affidavit of non-use. However, you will be financially responsible for anything that happens to the car while you’re gone, and insurance companies might question the lapse in coverage in the future. Instead, many insurers allow you to purchase comprehensive-only coverage when your car is in storage during deployment.
