Is Umbrella Insurance Right For Me?


The majority of people believe that umbrella insurance is something that rich people need and that they will have no use for. However, there are many people who can benefit from an umbrella insurance policy. As you purchase more assets and have more earning power, you also increase the amount of assets you have at risk. If your basic auto and homeowners insurance policies are not enough to cover your assets, then it may be time to consider an umbrella insurance policy.

With both homeowners insurance and auto insurance, there is a minimum to purchase and there is a maximum that you can purchase. If you have maxed out your coverage through your traditional policies, you are not out of luck. You simply need to purchase excess liability which would cover anything above your traditional policy. This is referred to as an umbrella policy.

An umbrella insurance policy will not just cover your home or vehicle, though. It can cover all of your assets including your retirement fund. In addition to that protection, it offers protection against non-work related cases of personal injury including libel, slander, false arrest, and wrongful eviction. It can cover your legal costs for a covered loss. It also covers you worldwide and not just here in the United States or in a specific state.

You can purchase an umbrella policy ranging from $1 million to $5 million. With such large amounts of coverage, it is the ideal insurance policy to supplement existing policies when you have a lot of assets to protect. While it is not right for everyone, if you have a lot to protect, you may want to consider it.
