Absolutely, unless you are independently wealthy and don't care if your vehicle is a total loss every once in a while. Uninsured motorist fees are very nominal compared to the alternative.

Can you buy disability insurance if you're retired?

Disability insurance protects a person's ability to work and earn an income. If a person is already retired, than they are no longer working or earning an income, which leaves no income to insure. In retirement there is a type of coverage called Long-Term Care insurance, which should be considered instead. This type of coverage is very similar to disability insurance, only rather than protecting one's ability to work and earn an income, it protects a person's assets and savings. It shifts the risk of having to pay for long-term care from the individual to the insurance company.

Can your wife take you off of her medical insurance plan before you are separeted if I am retired with no medical insurance of my own?

Answer Sir, I can only quote you regarding Canadian Law that says if your wife is paying for your Medical Insurance through her job as a payroll deduction she can take you off anytime she wishes. Under Canadian Laws a wife or husband is not held responsible for the other one's health insurance needs. Hope this was helpful, but if not, perhaps you can contact the Health Insurance Board where you live. If you choose to buy insurance, then as a general rule, nobody can force you to keep buying the coverage. Yes, you can drop coverage. However, if you are paying for the coverage through IRS Section 125 with pre-tax funds through your employer, then you may (or may not, depending on the circumstances) be able to reverse your decision to reduce your pre-tax earnings.

Who pays first if you have medicare and are retired hourly from General Motors?

Chances are Medicare would pay first as long as you are no longer working, or if your spouse does not have you covered under insurance through their employer. If your spouse IS working and you do have coverage through them, the group insurance would be primary if their employer has more then 100 employees working for them. Otherwise, Medicare will be primary.
