I is for Improve Your Insurance

Insurance is the intangible layer of protection covering your health, car, home, business, etc. It also happens to be one of the most essential monthly expenses that a family or individual needs to protect their future. Insurance is a contract, represented by a policy, in which an individual or entity receives financial protection or reimbursement against losses from the insurance company that the plan was purchased. For this reason, it makes sense to improve and review your insurance policies annually. Helping you make sure all information is up to date and your policy is competitive with other insurance companies. This will help ensure your policies benefit your life today and are updated to satisfy your future.

But how and why should you improve your insurance? 

It should go without saying that your life is always changing, and therefore your needs will change too. Perhaps your healthcare needs are different, or your teenagers are going to start driving soon. Situations like these deserve an insurance evaluation. Family plans can often save money, even with inexperienced drivers.

How should I go about this?

First, look if anything has changed in your life:

  • Is your health declining or improving? 
  • Has the climate changed where your home is? 
  • Are you looking to move or buy more property? 
  • Is your business taking more risks than before or less? 

If something has recently changed or maybe about to, it’s necessary to do some research and find better insurance options available for you.

Second, figure out if it’s worth it.

Maybe your policy expires next year. Do your research now, but do wait until it’s time to renew to take action. Doing so may help you get the best coverage possible going forward.

And third, don’t be afraid to reach out for help. 

Ask your insurance agent to find you exactly what you are looking for at the lowest fees. Also, check with your financial advisor; there may be areas where you could be saving money or perhaps need more coverage, like hurricane insurance for your retirement beach house!

Insurance is one of the most important purchases we can make! No matter what type of insurance it is for, it’s important to reevaluate what it looks like. It’s never too late to make improvements in any area of your life or finances!
