Ask Me About:

When buying car insurance it is important to find the right balance between coverage and affordability, right? If you have a loan on the vehicle, or are leasing the vehicle, you’ll be required to carry higher amounts to cover the value of the car and protect the lender. If your car is 20 years old, maybe all you need is liability insurance to cover damage and/or injury to other people and their property.

How do you know?

The best way to make sure you’re getting the right balance between coverage and affordability is to ask an insurance agent these three questions:

1. What does the policy cover? Make sure you know what you are paying for, and add things you want (Roadside assistance? Towing?) and drop things you don’t want (Roadside assistance? Towing?).
2. Do I have enough liability coverage? Liability coverage may be mandatory and state laws set a minimum coverage limit, however, those state minimums are often too low to protect you in the event you cause a multi-vehicle accident. Ask your agent what the average claim amount is.
3. Are there any available discounts? Many drivers can benefit from discounts. Many carriers offer discounts based on lower miles driven per year, or for going a certain number of years without an accident. You can’t get the discounts if you don’t ask about the discounts!
Technology is everywhere, and its application seems to be ever-expanding. The auto insurance world is already providing personalized discounts to drivers who voluntarily use driving tracking gadgets – is the home insurance world far behind? Will there soon by discounts for homeowners with internet-connected safety systems?

From app-connected doorbells to smart smoke detectors and remote lighting and temperature control (even WiFi-enabled fridges that tell you when you’re low on eggs), homeowners are hooking up to WiFi. But, according to the Wall Street Journal, the technology that promises to prevent damage and loss doesn’t yet translate to a safer house in the eyes of insurance companies.

Yes, the insurance industry is hearing from customers who want discounts for the devices they’ve added to their home, but there isn’t yet meaningful data that proves the devices actually improve security, or prevent significant loss, or reduce the replacement costs of a home and the items within it. Despite the lack of significant data-based proof, individual homeowners like these connected security devices and claim they already feel safer.

But if/when these technology-based home security devices prove meaningful in improving home security and preventing damage or loss over time, the insurance industry may indeed respond by reducing rates. Some insurers are already offering small discounts for connected devices while they test their efficacy, but not in amounts that significantly reduce average premiums across the board. According to the WSJ the average premium in the U.S. for homes is predicted to increase 5.5% this year.

But unlike the auto-insurance industry, where drivers can get discounts of as much as 30% for agreeing to use technology that monitors their driving habits, experts say it could be several years before there’s enough data about smart-home devices to offer similar discounts in the home insurance world.

Technology certainly introduces exciting possibilities. It bears watching how the data stacks up to see if these connected devices and gadgets significantly reduce damage, loss and risk to the point that meaningful discounts would be offered to homeowners.

While there are a lot of things you need to be aware of when reading and understanding your home insurance policy, there are 5 key terms you need to know in order to make sure that your personal assets are protected and any potential liability is covered.
1. Replacement Cost
Whether due to burglary or a natural disaster, you want to make sure that your home and possessions are replaced.
2. Water Backup
Water backup is a vital feature in coverage, and if you encounter an issue with water accidents, you'll be glad that you made sure it's included in your home insurance policy. Normally, the coverage is for situations that are not covered on a standard home policy.
3. All-Risk Coverage
All-risk coverage doesn't list everything that is covered - instead, it lists everything that isn't included. It's not imperative to purchase an all-risk coverage plan, but it's always good to ask for and evaluate. While there are some exceptions to all-risk coverage (nuclear war, flood and ground contamination), it can increase your sense of protection.
4. HOAs
If you're in a home that relies on a master policy as your primary coverage, read it carefully and pay attention to the details. You want to make sure that there are no special items, deductibles or gaps in the coverage between your personal and your master policy. You can easily get more clarity on this information by talking to your insurance agent or an HOA representative. It could come in handy to record these conversations (with their permission) so that you always have the information on hand when you need it.
5. Valuable items
It's not uncommon for valuable items like jewelry, guns, furs, precious metals, etc., to only be insured up to $2,500. If your possessions are worth more than $2,500 each, you will need a professional appraisal of the item in question and a photo of it to add to your home policy.

More than 40% of Americans have no life insurance, according to a 2015 study by trade group LIMR. Another 19% only have group life insurance (coverage available through work) which is rarely enough to cover a family’s long-term needs. Here are some reasons to consider life insurance when you’re a married couple and some options for policies:

1. You’re adding expenses
Couples often use their combined incomes to take on bigger financial obligations, such as renting a nicer apartment, buying a home or new cars and/or having children. Many couples wouldn’t be able to bear these costs on just one income. One of biggest reasons for buying life insurance is the income replacement it provides, which allows your family to continue with their plans and lifestyle.

2. Your spouse may inherit your debts
Any debts still owed when you die would have to be paid out of your remaining assets. This will reduce the amount of what you pass on to your spouse. In community property states (Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin), your spouse would be responsible for debts you took on after getting married, such as personal credit card balances. Do you want to leave them on the hook for that?

3. Life insurance cost more the longer you wait
The sooner you buy a policy and lock in your life insurance rates, the more money you’ll save over the long run, because prices go up with every year you get older. Buy it while you’re young and healthy – if you later develop a medical condition you could pay much higher rates, if you even qualify at all.

Once you’ve decided to add life insurance, the question becomes what kind of coverage to buy and how much you need. Your decision generally depends on what financial obligations you want to cover, how long those obligations last and how much protection you can afford.

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:

Learn More

1. Not Buying Enough Protection, or for Long Enough
Always buy at least 10x your income in life insurance coverage. If you’re getting a policy through work, it is likely only one year’s worth of coverage, which isn’t nearly enough for those who depend on you now.

If you’re the primary earner in your household, your spouse and children need to be taken care of if something happens to you. When you have plenty of coverage in place, it will allow them to maintain their lifestyle until they figure out their next steps.
Regarding the length of the term, you might think you’re saving money by choosing a shorter term of coverage, like 10 years instead of 20. But what happens if you buy a 10-year policy and you have medical issues nine years from now that raise the cost of your next plan—or make you ineligible for coverage? Those few dollars saved earlier are now exponentially more expensive.

2. Waiting Too Long to Get Covered
The longer you wait to buy life insurance, the greater the possibility something will happen that will disqualify you from life insurance, or that will make your coverage more expensive. Life insurance premiums generally increase as you get older, so buying sooner rather than later can save you money.

3. Failing to Review and Update Your Life Insurance Policy
It’s always a smart idea to go over your term life insurance policy to make sure you have exactly what you need for your current situation. Your coverage might have been fine 10 years ago, but that doesn’t mean it works for you now. If you have added a mortgage or student loans, that initial term payout may no longer be sufficient.

Life insurance is a major part of a healthy financial plan. Don’t put off buying it, or you could find leave your family in a major financial hole one day.
