Would an Umbrella Insurance Policy Be Right for You?
There are many different types of insurance you can purchase, and one of those is an umbrella insurance policy. It is intended to offer additional coverage on top of your existing auto or home policy.
Who would benefit from such a policy? It helps if a lawsuit is brought against you that exceeds the limits of your current insurance policy, or is not covered under your existing one. Also, it provides extra coverage for any legal defense costs that can add up quickly. In essence, it helps you fill in the gaps in your insurance coverage so that you are prepared for as many situations as possible.
Not everyone needs additional coverage. Who are best candidates for an umbrella insurance policy? People who own multiple properties, those who travel often or internationally for business and pleasure, as well as those people who own a wide variety of recreational vehicles, such as hang gliders, snow mobiles, and motor bikes, would benefit.
You need to purchase your umbrella insurance policy from the business who sold you your auto or home owner’s policy. Typically, umbrella policies are sold in increments of $1 million dollars. Once you have used the amount of your primary policy, your umbrella insurance policy will come into play.
