Insurers do not need to send out a new sign-down form for UM/UIM coverage when an insured person who already had lower limits of the coverage changes another aspect of his policy, a unanimous Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled in an issue of first impression.

(15 pages) that the Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law (MVFRL) does not mandate that insurance companies re-comply with the MVFRL’s provisions regarding uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage each time a policy is amended.
