How Insurance Underwriting Works 

You may have wondered how insurance companies calculate your insurance premiums. The formula for premiums is based on underwriting and rating. Underwriting uses information about you to place you in a category of drivers with similar risks to determine how much it will likely cost them to provide your insurance. The insurance company will look at the number of past accidents you have had, plus your age and gender. 

Where you live and whether you use your car for business will also be part of the underwriting calculation. Another factor is your car type and whether your vehicle is considered high-risk. You may be interested in learning that your marital status and profession are also part of an underwriting decision. Those criteria are then used to assign you a rating and arrive at the amount of your insurance premium.
