If you don’t have an umbrella policy, you should. It’s an important part of one’s financial portfolio. Umbrella Insurance protects your assets.
A Personal Liability Umbrella Policy “sits-over” your home and auto liability limits. Coverage limits start at $1,000,000 (up to $5,000,000) and provides you protection from lawsuits.
Coverage is relatively inexpensive to purchase. $1,000,000 of coverage sitting over two autos and a home would cost about $180 annually.
Umbrella Policies require underlying motor vehicle liability limits of $250,000 per person/ $500,000 per accident.
In addition to coverage limits, insurance companies provide legal defense.
So, in essence, when you purchase higher limits you are also purchasing improved legal defense.
In an ideal insurance world, you want your insurance limits to, at least, match the amount of your assets.
No one wants to spend more money on insurance, however, rather than simply trying to save money, you should be asking: Do I have enough coverage?
