Title 33, Chapter 24, Section 44.1 (33-24-44.1)

(a) An insured may request cancellation of an existing insurance policy by returning the original policy to the insurer or by making a written request for cancellation of an insurance policy to the insurer or its duly authorized agent stating a future date on which the policy is to be canceled. Such cancellation shall be accomplished in the following manner:

(1) If only the interest of the insured is affected, the policy shall be canceled on the later of the date the returned policy or written request is received by the insurer or its duly authorized agent or the date specified in the written request; provided, however, that upon receipt of a written request for cancellation from an insured, an insurer may waive the future date requirement by confirming the date and time of cancellation in writing to the insured;

(2) If by statute, regulation, or contract the insurance policy may not be canceled unless notice is given to a governmental agency, mortgagee, or other third party, the insurer shall mail or deliver such notice stating the date cancellation shall become effective, but such date shall not be less than ten days from the date of mailing or delivery of the notice.

(b) Notices required by this Code section shall be delivered in person or by depositing the notice in the United States mail to be dispatched by at least first-class mail to the last address of record of the named insured, governmental agency, mortgagee, or other third party, where applicable, and receiving the receipt provided by the United States Postal Service or such other evidence of mailing as prescribed or accepted by the United States Postal Service.

(c) Where any notice is mailed or delivered in accordance with this Code section, the effective date of cancellation of the policy shall be the last effective date of any such notice.

(d) Notwithstanding the failure of the insurer to comply with the provisions of this Code section, cancellation shall be effective on the effective date of any replacement policy providing the same or similar coverage, which date shall not be prior to the date provided in subsection (a) of this Code section.

(e) Except as provided in Chapter 22 of this title, an insurance policy which by its terms may be canceled by the insured shall be canceled in accordance with this Code section.
