Be sure to ask about a Personal Umbrella
Q) What is an Umbrella Policy?
WikiPedia it is defined as:
"Umbrella insurance refers to a
insurance policy that protects the assets and future income of the
policyholder above and beyond the standard limits on their primary policies. It
is distinguished from
excess insurance in that excess coverage goes into effect only when all
underlying policies are totally exhausted, while umbrella is able to "drop down"
to fill coverage gaps in underlying policies.
Therefore, an umbrella policy can become the primary policy "on the risk" in
certain situations. The term "umbrella" refers to how the policy shields the
insured's assets more broadly than primary coverage.
Typically, an umbrella policy is pure liability coverage over and above the
coverage afforded by the regular policy, and is sold in increments of one
million dollars. The term "umbrella" is used because it covers liability claims
from all policies underneath it, such as
auto insurance and
homeowners insurance policies. For example, if the insured carries an auto
insurance policy with liability limits of $500,000 and a homeowners insurance
policy with a limit of $300,000, then with a million dollar umbrella, the
insured's limits become in effect, $1,500,000 on an auto liability claim and
$1,300,000 on a homeowners liability claim."
Q) My home was just appraised for $500,000, why is my insurance
coverage only $300,000.
A) Your home owners' policy only covers the replacement of your
house. Land does not need coverage as it is not destroyed during a loss
event (fire, hurricane, etc.).
Q) What needs to be scheduled on my Home Owners' Insurance for
A) This depends on server factors. As general rule
the following should be discuss with your agent:
- Fine Arts

A) We recommend that you video tape the contents of your home.
It is important to store a copy of that tape off site.
Q) What does the Identity Theft endorsement cover?
A) This covers the cost (up to the policy limit) of repairing
your credit and a good name. It doesn't cover the actual fraudulent debt.
Q) Is it important that I let my insurance company know when I
refinance my house?
A) YES! Finance companies require proof of insurance & we their
address on-file. Also, if a claim is filed, the check will be in your old
finance companies name and un-cashable.
Q) Is flood covered on my policy?
A) No, flood insurance is separate from a home owners' policy.
Although, some water damage is covered under your home owners' policy.
