One month into the new year, you’ve probably been thinking about ways to save money, find peace of mind, and be a little more organized in 2021.
Did anything change for you in 2020? If so, remember that your insurance coverage might need to change, as well.
Either way, it’s a good idea to check in annually to make sure you have the right coverage for your needs.
Here’s how to know if you’re on track:
Do you have enough auto insurance?
Did you buy a new (or new-to-you) vehicle recently? Or change your driving habits? Here’s what to consider:
Collision coverage: The minimum requirement isn’t always enough to meet your needs. If you bought a high-value new or used car, collision coverage helps cover the cost of repair or replacement up to your vehicle’s cash value, regardless of who is at fault.
Uninsured motorists: What if someone without auto insurance hits your car? This type of coverage protects you from having to pay for a repair or replacement on your own.
Comprehensive: This covers non-collision repairs and replacements from theft, vandalism, damage from natural disasters, and more.
How much homeowners insurance do you need?
As with auto coverage, the minimum isn’t always enough.
Dwelling: This helps you pay for repairs or a rebuild due to covered events (such as a fire). Has the value of your home or the cost of construction increased? You may want to adjust accordingly.
Personal property: Have you inventoried the value of your possessions lately? This type of coverage is for everything in your house and kicks in if your belongings are stolen or damaged.
Liability: Do you have people working in your house, such as a cleaner or babysitter? A big yard where an injury could occur? It may be time to increase your liability coverage.
