Q: What kind of insurance is required?
A: Your Mercedes-Benz Financial First Class Financing® agreement requires you to obtain and maintain comprehensive and collision insurance on your vehicle.
Q: Where should insurance information be sent?
A: Ask your insurance agent to send policies, renewals, carrier changes or cancellations to: Mercedes-Benz Financial Insurance Services Department P.O. Box 1800 Roanoke, TX 76262-1800
Cancellation notices must be received within 30 days of the effective date.
Q: How much insurance is required?
A: The maximum standard deductible permitted is governed by the state in which the contract was executed. Mercedes-Benz Financial should be listed as the loss payee on all policies.

A: Always notify your insurance agent and the Support Services Department Monday – Friday between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET at 1-866-321-8351. Because “DCFS USA LLC” is listed as the loss payee, insurance checks for repairs should be issued jointly to “DCFS USA LLC” and you. To speed up the release of your vehicle from the body shop, promptly send joint-payee checks, before you endorse them, to the address below. Insurance checks over certain amounts may require the physical inspection of repairs before Mercedes-Benz Financial can endorse the check. Please enclose the name and telephone number of the body shop and note your account number on the check. Send to:
Mercedes-Benz Financial Insurance Specialist P.O. Box 685 Roanoke, TX 76262-0685
Q: What if I change insurance companies?
A: If you’re renewing, canceling or changing carriers, have your agent send a copy of your new policy or binder to Mercedes-Benz Financial immediately at the address below. Include a copy of your current policy as a reference. “DCFS USA LLC” must still be listed as the “loss payee.” Cancellation notices must be received by Mercedes-Benz Financial within 30 days of the effective date.
