Why Reviewing Your Insurance Should Be on Your End of Year Checklist

Why Reviewing Your Insurance Should Be on Your End of Year Checklist

Carry the right insurance policies into the New Year! 

The holiday season is here! While many of us are still reeling from the festivities and getting ready for the New Year ahead, there may be one task that you’re forgetting – to review your insurance policies before the New Year! As 2018 approaches, take the time to be certain that your insurance policies match your needs, budget, and family so that you can enter the new year worry-free! Not only this, but a quick insurance review could end up saving you time and money in the long run.

Here’s why you need to review your policies!

  • Changes with your situation

Your homeowners and auto insurance policies need to be up to date with accurate information. If you changed your address, added a driver or a vehicle, you need to update your auto insurance. If you put a new addition on your house or adopted a certain dog breed, your insurer should know, too.

  • Possible discounts

You may be eligible for discounts and not even know it! It’s worth checking to make sure you’re receiving all applicable discounts on your policy each year. Common discounts are savings for married people, recent graduates, and if your college student left home without taking the car with them. Another major discount a lot of people don’t take advantage of is the multi-policy discount. Bundle your auto, home, life, and business policies with the same insurer and you could save yourself quite a bit of money!

  • Sudden premium increase

There are many reasons why your auto insurance premium would have increased suddenly, but the easiest way to find out is to ask your insurance agent. Most people have their insurance set up to automatically deduct from their bank account and pay their home insurance through their escrow account. However, it’s worth taking a look at the premiums now and again to ensure you aren’t being charged more for the same level of coverage.
