At Farmers® we've seen almost everything, so we know how to cover almost anything – like a bear turning a garage upside down. So do you have a plan for the unexpected? I'm happy to lay out the insurance options for you to select the coverage you want.
The 2018 hurricane season is making property owners think twice about their insurance coverage. When a hurricane or other severe storm damages your home, here are five steps to take.
1. Understand what is covered, what is not covered
Before a storm hits you, make sure you clearly understand what your home insurance policy does and does not cover.
2. Do a damage inspection after extreme weather
You need to perform a careful inspection of your home and property after a serious storm. Check for missing shingles on your roof and damage to your siding and gutters, and any other exterior features on the home. Be sure to take pictures of any damage you find!
3. Have contractors provide estimates
If you discover damage that is covered by your homeowner’s insurance, you’ll be wise to have multiple contractors over to see the damage (and inspect for additional damage that you might not have noticed). Ask each contractor for a repair estimate. Get at least three written estimates for your insurance company.
4. Compare the estimates against your deductible
Use this test to determine how to proceed:
• If the estimates are less than your deductible, pay for the repairs yourself.
• If the estimates are equal to your deductible, pay for the repairs yourself.
• If the estimates are slightly higher than your deductible, pay for the repairs yourself, if you are able. Why? Because every time you file a claim your claims are recorded in a shared insurance database. As your claims add up, if can negatively affect your future ability to insure your home. You really only want to make a claim when you have to.
• If the estimates are clearly higher than your deductible, file the claim and have your insurance company pay for the repairs or replacement.
5. File your claim promptly
When you determine that you do need to submit a claim, do it immediately. Many insurance policies provide a specific window of time in which you can file your claim after the damage occurs. If you delay your claim could be denied.

Industry studies reveal that young adults generally are not buying health, renters, auto and life insurance at the same rate as their parents. This perpetual status of being underinsured is a gamble that can lead to financial ruin.
They’re going without essential protection
A 2015 Gallup poll estimated that 12% of the US population lacks health insurance (even in the age of ObamaCare). However, that number more than doubles among the Millennials with about 25% of lacking health insurance.

Other findings about Millennials’ insurance coverage includes these surprisingly low numbers:
• Only 64% have auto insurance
• Only 12% have renters insurance
• Only 36% have life insurance
Why aren’t Millennials buying insurance?
Economics: Millennials are facing a changing and disrupted labor market, and when coupled with the burden of student loans, many Millennials simply don’t have the cash available to buy protection.
Mom and Dad: Millennials are relying heavily on Mom and Dad for their car and health insurance. The Affordable Care Act allows parents to list their children on their health coverage plans until they turn 26.
A risky choice
Simply put: Millennials driving, renting and living without insurance protection are putting themselves in positions that could result in the loss of their possessions and/or stifling new debt.
Consider this about car insurance:
• If you drive a car and do not have auto insurance, you’re breaking the law.
• If you’re at fault in a collision in which people are injured or killed, you are responsibly to pay for medical expenses.
• If you’re at fault in a collision that damages someone’s property, you’ll have to pay for medical repair or replacement costs on your own.
• You could be on the hook for tens of thousands of dollars, and in some states, jail time.
Consider this about renters insurance:
• In the event of a fire, flood, tornado, etc., your landlord’s insurance policy won’t protect, repair or replace your personal possessions.
• If a guest is injured while at your apartment and needs medical attention, again, you could be responsible for bills that result from a trip to the ER.

If you’re already cash-strapped, rolling the dice on being uninsured is a careless and potentially dangerous move. The key to finding affordable coverage is exploring your options.
No matter your budget, there may be a level of insurance protection that is just right for you.
We’ll be happy to talk with you about your level of risk and how to protect yourself

It’s not exactly cheap to own a car these days – and auto insurance increases are all over the local news lately. But these tips may help you reduce your insurance costs.
As Americans, we love our cars. We may not love our car insurance costs, but the financial protection we gain from those policies is a trade-off we just can’t live without -- just ask anyone who’s been involved in an accident.

1. Comparison Shop. If you have a good driving record and/or buy a safer car, your premium may go down. But shop around - increased competition means better auto insurance rates!
2. Ask for discounts. These factors may lower your insurance premiums:
• Combining two or more cars on one auto insurance policy
• Buying a car with airbags or other safety equipment like stability control or automatic braking
• Installing anti-theft devices in your vehicle
• Completing a safe driver’s education course
• Insuring your home and auto with the same insurance company
• If you’re between 50 and 65 years of age, ask about a mature driver discount
• The good grades discount (for students under 25)
3. Increase your deductible. The higher your deductible, the lower your premium. Set your deductible as high as you comfortably can.
4. Remove comprehensive and/or collision coverage on an older car. If your vehicle is several years old–or worth less than $1,000–it may not be worth much anyway, and you’re overpaying for protection. Dropping unnecessary coverage can reduce your monthly premiums.
5. Find out what your insurance will be before you buy a car. Auto insurance companies know which cars are expensive to fix and/or which don’t protect you so well in accidents. Don’t let yourself be surprised. Before you buy a new car, do some research and ask your insurance company what would happen to your rates. If you can get a VIN on the new car, you’ll get a more accurate idea of what will happen.
6. Review and update your policy regularly. Your auto insurance rates change due when you add or remove drivers or automobiles, or even if your daily commute changes. Talk to your insurance company about any changes you make. You could walk away with lower premiums!

If you were among those who received an unpleasant surprise when your auto insurance policy renewed this year, don’t despair. There are ways to take the sting out of your car insurance premiums. Just try these simple tips:

There are very specific things a driver can do to reduce auto premiums. Here is a list of six specific things you can to make your auto insurance more affordable:
1. Take a defensive driving course. Drivers who have taken defensive driving courses generally have a lower chance of causing an accident. Such courses can help new drivers and/or high-risk drivers reduce their insurance premiums.
2. Park it inside. A vehicle that spends most nights in a garage enjoys a lower risk of damage than a vehicle that is regularly parked on the curb. If you can keep your car inside at night, you may see a reduction in car insurance premiums.
3. Choose a car with safety devices. Devices such as airbags, always-on headlights, anti-lock brakes, rearview cameras, and blind-spot warning systems will improve a car's safety rating and functionality.
4. Improve your own credit score. In many states, car insurance companies factor in your credit score when calculating your premiums. Data proves that people with higher credit scores make fewer automobile insurance claims that drivers with lower credit scores. As you clean up your credit, you may see better insurance rates.
5. Bundle with other policies. Most insurance companies offer discounts when you carry multiple policies with them. Talk to your insurance agent and find out what additional discounts are available. Don’t worry about how difficult you think it might be to switch your other policies (renters, home, life, umbrella, etc.) – let your agent help you do that.
6. Keep driving that old car. Newer cars that are leased or purchased via a loan have higher coverage requirements by the bank (to protect their ownership interest in the vehicle). But in some cases, you can carry less coverage on an older car – probably just liability coverage. If post-accident repair costs exceed the (lower) blue book value of the older car, it would be more cost-efficient to just replace the car. As such, the cost of car insurance would be significantly lower than a new car.

Before you take any of these steps, let’s talk and see which of these may have the greatest positive impact on your auto insurance rates. We’re happy to review your current car insurance and make sure you understand what your policy covers, whether or not you have enough liability insurance, and check for all available discounts!
