An umbrella for all seasons
You've worked hard to get where you are. Your home, your grown-up toys, your retirement fund — none came easy. That's why it makes sense to protect them with more than just personal car and homeowners insurance.
Umbrella insurance can help. A secondary liability policy, umbrella insurance helps ensure that you have all the protection you need in case of an incident involving your car, home, or other property.
A personal umbrella policy is intended to fulfill 2 basic functions:
- It extends the limits of your primary policies, kicking in when those coverage limits have been exhausted
- It affords broader coverage than your primary policies provide
Why you need umbrella insurance
As your assets increase so does your exposure to loss. Umbrella insurance typically provides liability coverage above and beyond that of standard home and car insurance policies, allowing you to rest easy, knowing you're protected.
Imagine that you decide to take a relaxed Sunday spin around the neighborhood and, after swerving to avoid a squirrel, end up crashing your brand-new car into your neighbor's recently remodeled home, demolishing the lovingly cared-for vintage British roadster in the garage in the process.
The repair bills quickly mount into the millions, easily surpassing the limits on your car and homeowners insurance policies. And you're being sued to cover the damages, leaving you with several hundred thousand dollars in bills you'll have to pay out of pocket — unless you have the right umbrella coverage.
What personal umbrella coverage offers
If you're sued and found to be at fault, your personal umbrella insurance policy will kick in to cover certain damages that exceed the limits on your auto, homeowners, or other applicable policies.
