What You Need to Know About Personal Insurance
What is personal insurance?
With a personal insurance policy, you can protect your and your family’s health, your personal belongings, and even your activities. Individual insurance covers costs that could potentially cripple your financial health.
Some policies, like car and homeowners insurance, are required by law or third parties. Even though the majority of personal insurance policies aren’t required, you should still consider maintaining them. Accidents happen, and you should protect yourself against their devastating financial effects.
What are the types of personal insurance?
There are hundreds of different types of personal insurance you can choose from depending on your needs and situation. However, there are some significant individual insurance policies everyone should know. These include:
- Car Insurance — A great car insurance policy protects you and other drivers.
- Earthquake Insurance — Impossible to predict, earthquakes can cause major damage to your personal property and home. It is a common assumption that homeowners insurance covers earthquakes and other natural disasters, but this isn’t always the case.
- Flood Insurance — Standard homeowners and renters insurance policies do not cover flooding! Since flooding can occur anywhere it rains, every homeowner should seriously consider purchasing a flood insurance policy.
- Health Insurance — An individual health insurance policy can provide coverage for individuals, individuals and their spouses, or entire families.
- Homeowner’s Insurance — Your house is not just a roof over your head. It is your family's home and holds those things you value and worked hard to acquire. It is also one of the biggest investments many of us make.
- Life Insurance — It isn’t for you—it's for your family. Life insurance offers financial protection to your dependents in the event of your death.
- Umbrella Insurance — This policy provides additional liability insurance that goes into effect when a claim exceeds your homeowners or car insurance policy’s limits.
