Personal Umbrella Insurance

Umbrella insurance is additional liability insurance. It is intended to help protect you against major claims and lawsuits. For this reason, it helps protect your personal assets and your future. It does this in two ways:

  1. Umbrella insurance provides additional liability coverage above the limits of your homeowners, auto, and boat insurance policies. This protection begins when the liability covered by these policies has been exhausted.

  2. Umbrella insurance provides coverage for claims that may not be included by other liability policies. Some examples of these policies include false arrest, libel, slander, and liability coverage on rental units you own.

 

What Umbrella Insurance Covers

 

Umbrella insurance provides coverage for injuries, property, certain lawsuits, and other personal liability situations. Umbrella insurance covers you beyond the limits of the policies named above. It also covers some situations not covered by other types of policies.
