How Important is Insurance? Camie Sims Updated On: September 1, 2022 • 1 Minute Read Insurance Owning a home or renting. Driving to work. Just living life. What do all of these activities have in common? Risk - things can go wrong; and this is what insurance can help give you peace of mind over. There are different types of insurance that consumers are using or even are required to have, including, but not limited to, auto, health, homeowners, and renters insurances. We’ll take a quick look at these types and what they can each help you with in protecting your finances. Auto Insurance You use your vehicle to get where you need to go on a daily basis and unpredictable accidents happen. These surprise expenses can be tough on anyone’s budget, especially when you might be responsible to pay some or all of the costs for the other party involved in an accident. One benefit of having auto insurance is that your provider can help you contact a professional who assists in determining payments and responsibilities in an accident. Health Insurance You never know when a sickness or injury will happen to you or your family. Having health insurance helps you stay prepared for expensive healthcare that may be needed. Healthcare plans have many varieties and options, so it is extremely important to research the different plans to find the best coverage for you. Home Owner / Renters Insurance Your home, or the place you call home, is usually one of the biggest expenses in life, so protecting it is important. These insurance policies offer a safety net in the event of an environmental disaster or an accident on your property. With homeowner’s insurance, an unexpected tragedy will not be putting as much of a strain on your finances. Renter’s insurance offers similar benefits as homeowner’s insurance in regards to offering coverage for your personal belongings as well as liability coverage. Renter’s insurance is essential for anyone renting, and sometimes required by landlords.
