What is personal umbrella insurance?
Home and auto insurance is an important step in your financial planning and a great way to protect your family’s assets. But, it is not without limitations. You can choose the amount of coverage you wish to own. But, these personal insurance policies will only cover up to a certain dollar amount. For coverage beyond those limitations, you will need umbrella insurance.
Umbrella insurance is there to protect you if you are liable for something big. Similar to an umbrella, it is there to fill in coverage caps that you may have from your other insurance policies.
For example, if you're in a big car accident and need to cover replacement and medical costs, umbrella insurance can help in these extra costs. Instead of just having your normal auto insurance coverage, Iowa umbrella insurance gives you the additional coverage you may need.
What are the benefits of personal umbrella insurance?
Standard insurance policies do provide valuable protection. But, there is still a chance that you can become financially liable for a sum larger than what your policies will cover. For instance, say you have a fire in your home, and it spreads to destroy your neighbor’s property. Does your home insurance policy include enough liability coverage to pay for the damages?
Umbrella Insurance can assist in the claim and payment processes by covering costs when all other insurance is exhausted. This makes the handling of claims and payments made a much easier process. If you are sued and do not have enough coverage with your standard policies, all your assets are exposed. This can include your house, car, financial and retirement accounts, and future income.
Think of umbrella insurance as a blanket policy that adds another layer of coverage on top of your basic policies. When you’ve reached the limits on your home or auto insurance, your umbrella insurance then helps cover the remaining costs.
