If you cancel a policy during the middle of the term, there is a good possibility you could be entitled to a refund, however, it is very important for you as the insured to make sure that you follow up with your previous company to ensure you know what amount is owed to you and that they have updated contact information so you're able to recieve the payment.
This is a question we get often because other agencies don't always explain the process to their clients. Basically what it comes down to is that you first have to identify what type of payment plan you're on.

Either way, this is something you want to always make sure to have a clear understanding of and discuss with your agent when you first obtain the policy to make sure that youre coverage never lapses.
