Umbrella Insurance is a supplement to your existing policies that offers up to $1 million or more in additional coverage beyond what is available from your auto, homeowner’s, and other property or vehicle policies.
So why should you make it a part of your insurance portfolio? Here are three situations where umbrella insurance can help.
Do you have a rental property or rent out your home?
Umbrella insurance covers liability on rental units. If you own a rental property or vacation rental, umbrella coverage can be invaluable for you as a property owner. Many things can a do go wrong when you rent out your property. Be sure you are protected with an umbrella policy.
If you are responsible for a serious accident.
Auto insurance is designed to protect you in case of an accident for which you are held responsible, but this does not mean that the amount of insurance coverage you currently have will be enough to cover all damage caused in some situations. If you cause an accident with a high-value vehicle or there are serious personal injuries that need to be paid for, you may quickly exhaust your automobile insurance coverage. With umbrella coverage, you’ll have an extra policy so you do not end up paying for these expenses out of pocket.
What about other vehicles?
Boats, motorcycles, and other personal pleasure vehicles can present you with unexpected liability issues for which your existing insurance policies may not cover. Asking your insurance agent about umbrella insurance and if it may help supplement your current coverage could prevent financial disaster.
