Pa. Senate Approves Increase in Minimum Auto Insurance Coverage

In a long overdue action, the Pennsylvania Senate approved Senate Bill No. 928, which increases the required minimum liability insurance coverage in Pennsylvania to $25,000 per person, and $50,000 per accident; the bill also increases the minimum property damage coverage to $15,000.

The bill will now be sent to the House of Representatives for a vote.

By way of comparison, two states have lower limits than Pennsylvania’s limits of $15,000/$30,000/$5,000, which 41 states have higher minimum auto insurance coverage requirements. For a comparison, visit
