Auto Insurance
When it comes to finding the right Auto Insurance coverage in Montrose CO, the team at the Jesse Dryer Agency have you covered no matter what’s in your garage.

You might be practical when you choose cars — a versatile hatchback or minivan is just the thing. Perhaps you prefer the rugged image of an SUV, or like to reward yourself with a convertible or luxury sedan. Maybe you're a car collector and also have a classic muscle car or vintage sports car for weekend cruising.

Whatever you drive, you know you need insurance for your car and assets. And Farmers has coverage options that enable you to get the auto insurance policy you want.

Here are some of the risks a driver may face:

You cause an accident

Risk:
You cause a minor collision when glare from the setting sun blinds you in rush hour traffic. Damage is relatively minimal, but the other driver says her neck is in pain.

Coverage:
Liability insurance coverage pays for bodily injury and property damage to another that results from covered losses you cause.

You accidentally damage your own car

Risk:
You’re on your way to a ski weekend when you lose traction on an icy road — the impact when you slide into a guardrail damages your SUV’s front fender.

Coverage:
Collision coverage can help repair your vehicle if it’s damaged — or compensate you for its value if it’s a total loss.

A hailstorm dents your car

Risk:
A sudden hailstorm cracks your car’s windshield and leaves dozens of dents on the hood, roof and trunk of your vehicle.

Coverage:
Comprehensive coverage can help when your car is damaged by something other than a collision.

An uninsured driver hits you

Risk:
You suffer minor injuries when another driver runs a red light and clips your car’s rear fender. On top of it all, the driver doesn’t have auto insurance.

Coverage:
Uninsured motorist coverage covers the costs of your bodily injuries — up to your policy limit – when they are caused by an at-fault driver without any auto insurance. Underinsured motorist coverage picks up the costs of your injuries when an at-fault driver has some insurance, but not enough to cover all of your damages.

Your son is injured in a single-car wreck

Risk:
Your son and a passenger are both injured when his subcompact hits a tree.

Coverage:
Medical payments coverage can help with medical expenses if they’re caused by a covered accident — regardless of fault.

You can’t work during physical therapy

Risk:
You miss several days of work while receiving physical therapy for injuries sustained in a car accident.

Coverage:
Personal Injury Protection (PIP), where available, can help with medical and rehabilitation expenses, as well as lost wages.
Homeowners Insurance
How do you define dream house? You might’ve chosen a Spanish-style hacienda on your favorite golf course, a center-hall colonial in a great school district, or a perfectly restored mid-century modern. Your home is a major investment, but — more than that — it’s where you raise a family, entertain friends and create lifelong memories.

Whether you live in the perfect starter house, a custom-built dream home or something in between, one thing is true: You want to protect the life you’ve made there.

Here are some typical situations in which Homeowners Insurance can help:

There’s a fire in your kitchen

Risk:
You act quickly and prevent a grease fire from getting out of control, but smoke damages the counters and cabinets in your kitchen.

Coverage:
Property coverage in your policy can help if your house is damaged by fire and/or smoke.

Thieves strike while you are away

Risk:
You return from a family vacation to discover thieves have stolen electronic equipment from your media room.

Coverage:
If your possessions are stolen, damaged or destroyed in an insured loss, your coverage can help replace them, up to the policy’s stated limits.

A visitor is injured

Risk:
A guest at your annual Fourth of July barbecue trips on the steps between your deck and the lawn — fracturing his wrist when he falls against a stone retaining wall.

Coverage:
Medical payments coverage can cover the medical costs if a visitor is hurt on your property, regardless of liability.

A tornado hits

Risk:
You heard the warning sirens and escaped uninjured, but you can’t live in your house while tornado damage is repaired.

Coverage:
Coverage for additional living expenses can help with the extra cost of temporary relocation caused by a covered event.

Instance where your homeowners insurance could help with losses away from your home:

Your jewelry is stolen

Risk:
You mastered the basics of surfing during lessons in Hawaii — but your wedding ring is stolen.

Coverage:
With personal possessions coverage, lost jewelry is covered up to your policy limits.

You lose your passport

Risk:
While on vacation in Europe, you lose the tote bag that has everyone’s passports.

Coverage:
Your homeowners policy can help with the cost of replacing passports and other valuable papers.

Homeowners policies generally cover valuable items like jewelry, artwork and collectibles — but usually at relatively low limits. With personal articles floaters, you can insure specific valuables at higher limits.

What do you love about your life? You might be grateful for a partner who understands you better than anyone else. Maybe you delight in watching your children embrace their talents. Perhaps a recent promotion is giving you the chance to flex some leadership skills.

If all goes according to plan, you’ll pay off the mortgage, put your kids through college and enjoy a long retirement. But you know the unexpected could happen — do you want to help plan for your family’s future if they must go on without you? Life insurance may help lighten their financial burden.

Your Farmers® agent can show you a number of coverage options you can tailor to your priorities and budget. In fact, life insurance plans may be more affordable than you might think.

Types of life insurance
Farmers Life® offers three types of life insurance — and each has unique characteristics:

Term Life Insurance
Term life is a type of life insurance policy where premiums remain level for a specified period of time —generally for 10, 20 or 30 years. After the end of the level premium period, premiums will generally increase. Coverage continues as long as the premiums are paid. Perhaps this is an option you may want to consider when you’re on a more limited budget and will have significant expenses over a shorter period of time.

You can often pay a lower premium when you select a shorter term — say, 10 years instead of 20. But since premiums are based on risk of death, once you are outside of the level premium period, a term life policy generally gets more expensive as you grow older.

Whole Life Insurance
Whole life is permanent insurance — you’re insured throughout your lifetime, or until the policy matures, as long as you continue to pay your premiums per terms of the contract. And those premiums will stay level as long as the policy remains in force. Over time, permanent insurance typically accumulates a cash value that can be accessed1 for a variety of purposes while you’re still alive.

Universal Life Insurance
Like whole life, universal life is permanent insurance that may also accumulate a cash value. It offers more flexibility, though. You can tailor a policy to meet changing priorities with flexible premiums and face amounts. Universal life also offers you more control over how quickly your cash value grows.

What’s the best coverage for you?
When it comes to life insurance, there’s no such thing as “one size fits all.” Everyone has different needs, goals and financial considerations. That’s why coverage comes in a variety of forms, with a range of features you can tailor to your unique situation:

Your family is young and growing, so you may be juggling a mortgage, auto loans and childcare costs. While your expenses may continue to expand over time, you may want an affordable life insurance policy that helps you plan for your family’s financial future until the kids are grown and the house is paid off.

You’re more established in life. In addition to providing a death benefit to your beneficiaries, you may leverage the loan1 or partial surrender features of certain policies to help support things like supplemental retirement income, caring for a family member with a disability or preparing for eventual estate taxes.

You’re single and have no children. The death benefit proceeds from your life insurance policy may help support obligations such as the costs of your personal debts, medical bills or final expenses — and may also help leave a legacy to someone you love or a favorite charity.

Your Farmers agent can explain your options, along with information about riders like:
Disability riders that may help pay your policy’s premiums, and may supplement your lost income, if you’re disabled.

An accelerated death benefit rider that lets you collect a portion of the policy’s death benefit if you become terminally ill with a short life expectancy.

A critical illness rider that pays a lump sum to you if you’re diagnosed with one of several specified critical illnesses such as cancer, heart attack or stroke.
The last month or so has seemed extra windy here in Western Colorado and we have received a number of questions regarding wind claims and roof issues from clients and locals in the real estate industry. Here are a few quick tips that can help you and your clients avoid any issues with Homeowners Insurance when making a purchase.

*Insurance underwriting typically requires roofs to be in "like new" condition, even one missing shingle on any part of the roof, could cause a home to be ineligible for some policies.

*Claims filed by a previous owner can affect the rates and insurability of a new buyer. We can let you know if a home has had previous claims by running a quote.

*Having more than two layers of shingles can make a home ineligible for coverage.

*If a home has wood shake shingles that have been covered up with new asphalt shingles it may also be ineligible for coverage.

*Watch out for "split" or "percentage" deductibles, and actual cash value (ACV) coverage on roofs. These things can be very confusing if they are not explained properly, and may cause you or your clients to have a bad experience when filing a claim if needed.
