Children and Liability Gaps

Children and Liability Gaps

Are your kids and grandkids enjoying summer vacation? No matter what they’ve been up to, make sure they are covered! Having children means that everyday activities come with increased responsibility and risk, but having the right coverage in place can give you peace of mind.

For example, a child could be injured at a birthday party you host and then a lawsuit could be filed against you. Do you have enough liability coverage to protect your assets? If your teen driver is has an at-fault accident, you could be held responsible for their actions. Are your auto liability limits high enough to provide adequate coverage? Even after children have left home for college, parents can still be on the hook. If your student allows a friend to borrow their vehicle and they cause a crash, the car owners could still be found liable.

In all of these situations, and in many other similar scenarios, a personal umbrella policy can help!  Umbrella policies exist to help you with major claims and lawsuits, and usually kicks in when the liability coverage on your underlying policy has been exhausted. The liability coverage provided by an umbrella policy can help with legal fees and can even pay damages, depending on your limits. Even if you don’t have children yet, check out these insurance gaps that could be trouble for married couples!

From toddlers to teens, children will always keep us on our toes. Give us a call at 661-542-7007 to get an insurance review or policy quote today!

Juvenile Life Insurance: Prepare for tomorrow, today!

Juvenile Life Insurance

🌻”To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”  Audrey Hepburn

Juvenile life insurance is a permanent insurance option that can provide your children or grandchildren with their own life insurance policy. A juvenile policy will provide them with benefits beyond what may be available to them through your own life insurance policy, as well! There are several reasons why many people choose to insure their children or grandchildren. One of the main reasons is that a medical exam is not usually necessary, unlike many adult plans. Additionally, the coverage is for life, regardless of the future health of the child! Other reasons include:

  1. The cost is often less than similar coverage for an adult! You may also be able to purchase additional insurance later, regardless of insurability.
  2. Some policies accumulate cash value, which can be used to pay future premiums or be borrowed from (generally tax free!)
  3. The cash value does not have to be used for specific expenses. Unlike 529 college savings plans, there are no built-in restrictions regarding usage!
  4. Juvenile policies allow for the tax-efficient transfer of wealth and can be useful in estate planning.

Insurance quote comparison

Quote Comparison: Apples to apples!

🍎🍊 Think an insurance price seems too good to be true? It could be, so make sure to check the information in your quote comparison!

Don’t compare apples and oranges when comparing insurance quotes! Always make sure deductibles and liability coverage amounts are exactly the same in all of your quotes, so you will get the most accurate comparison. Rates for different coverages vary from carrier to carrier and, as a result, you could receive a higher quote for lower coverage.

We’re here to help! Our agency can assist you in getting an accurate comparison, no matter your policy type! Click here to find out more about insurance quotes, comparisons, and our Farmers Friendly Review sessions!
