Ask Me About:
Pandemic Insurance Coverage would be offered as a rider (option) on the standard business owner’s insurance policy. Currently, there are very few insurance companies that will write this coverage as a standalone insurance policy. As it stands now, the pandemic insurance policies are not cheap, and very few companies can afford the coverage. These are the only policies that can support a business during these tragic times.
What I suspect will happen, is that the insurance industry and the federal government will work together to create a pandemic insurance coverage program similar to the terrorism insurance coverage that was created after 9/11. If they do, it should make it affordable for all small business owners to have coverage for a pandemic going forward.

On average, a drunk driving conviction will cause a person's premiums to increase 20% to 25% for up to three to 10 years, depending on the insurance company, according to Earl Jones, who owns Earl L. Jones Insurance Agency, which is based in Sunnyvale, California.
It gets worse.
"They will also have very limited choices for auto insurance during that time frame, as they typically are ineligible for auto insurance with the big-name carriers. As such, they will also lose their auto and home discounts as well, which can be another 15% to 20%," Jones says.
"They will also have to pay for an SR-22 as well, which can vary in price from $22 and up," he adds.
What is an SR-22? It's a certificate of insurance that offers proof that you carry car insurance.
There's more bad news.
"A DUI conviction can make it very challenging to get life insurance as well during that time period," Jones says. "As a lot of carriers will not write life insurance on a person with a major driving conviction such as a DUI
A great endorsement is extended replacement coverage. This will pay extra to rebuild the home, up to 50% more replacement cost dollars. With the high frequency of wildfires and tornadoes, which drive up construction costs, this is one endorsement you will want to max out on the home insurance policy.
Is there a common mistake that first-time buyers make and, if so, how can they avoid it?
Not all home insurance policies are the same. Some are just very basic specific coverage, while some are very broad in coverage. The more complex home insurance policy type is a bit more costly, but nonetheless, it’s worth the price.
Are there any homeowners insurance exclusions that might be surprising to a first-time buyer?
First-time homebuyers beware. Your standard home insurance policy does not cover major renovations and updates to the home. Major updates and renovations include knocking out walls, adding square footage, adding solar panels, new electrical, etc. Before a renovation, check with your home insurance provider first. A separate policy called a builder’s risk policy is usually required. It provides coverage for home projects and could provide coverage to the rest of the home during the project. Also, renovations not done by a licensed contractor or not done up to code are either excluded or void the home insurance policy.

1. Increase the collision deductible to $1000 or more. Like how often are planning to have an accident.
2. Bundle your other insurance together. Did you know that you can get a discount on your auto insurance if you bundle it with life insurance?
3. 55+ - Senior Defensive Driver’s Course. See if your company accepts that certification from the completion of the course.
I also explain why a cheater must always keep comprehensive coverage on their auto insurance. (I got a little inspired towards the end.) Yes... I said a cheater. We all know one or two...
Now if you discover your insurance company can’t treat you like I can, then it’s time to switch. Life is to short to be riddled with inadequate insurance.
