Insurance To-Dos When You Tie The Knot
February is all about love. In fact, it is estimated that as many as 4 million people will get engaged this Valentine’s Day!
With all of that love and wedding planning in the air, it can be hard to think about the boring, adult parts of a marriage.
So I'm here to make it easier on you. Here's a few things you need to think about in regards to your insurance policies after the big day.
Combine your auto insurance policies. If you both own a vehicle, the easiest thing to do is combine your policies by adding your spouse and their vehicle to your policy. And most companies offer some sort of multicar discount. We can take care of this in just a few minutes!
Make sure you're both listed on every policy. You both need to be on the homeowners or renters insurance so you can get assistance if needed. Do all of them at the same time and you won’t have to worry about it again.
Schedule an overall review. When you combine two households you'll have more belongings! Speak with your agent and verify that you have enough content and liability insurance to cover any new assets. (And to make sure those rings are put on the policy the right way!).
Purchase life insurance. It’s your honeymoon and you don’t want to think about death, but now is the time to get this very important coverage in place. It doesn’t cost much and will give you peace of mind that the person you love will be taken care of in the future. It’s the very best gift you can give to those you love.
The best part? It doesn’t have to be hard! One short appointment can check off every item on the list. Give us a call today to schedule a review with one of our agents.
