A: Insurance contracts are typically binding once they are entered into, even if the insured period hasn't started yet. However, you may have the right to cancel the policy under certain circumstances, such as within a specified "free look" period after issuance. I recommend reviewing the terms of the policy and consulting with an attorney to explore your options, especially considering the owed amount from the previous year.
