What is umbrella insurance?

Imagine yourself outdoors on a rainy day without an umbrella. At a minimum, you will get wet and need to retreat indoors for warmth. At a maximum, you will get soaked and have to take days off from work to recover from illness related to your negligence. Now, apply the scenario to an unexpected event such as fire or inclement weather destroying your possessions while you have insurance coverage that does not pay for everything that you’ve lost in Georgetown, TX, and now you have a financial dilemma on your hands.

It is during those times of under-coverage that you wish you had additional funds to help you pay for what your standard indemnity policy did not fund. Umbrella insurance offered by StraightEdge Insurance Agency may be your saving grace. 

What is umbrella insurance?

As the term implies, umbrella insurance is extra indemnity coverage that pays for the items that your standard assurance plan does not cover. Perhaps your auto insurance only covers $15,000 worth of damage, but your at-fault accident exceeds $20,000 in costs. Your umbrella insurance policy will pay the difference so that you do not have to sell your possessions to remain debt-free. 

Umbrella insurance is not just for automobiles. There are also policies that cover homeowners as well as boaters. This type of added protection may especially be handy during the winter season when high winds rip through Georgetown, TX and destroy parts of your residence. Wouldn’t it be nice to have full confidence that home repairs won’t set you back by thousands this year?

How much coverage is needed?

The amount of umbrella insurance coverage depends on the object being insured as well as personal preferences regarding financial limits. StraightEdge Insurance Agency can help you sort out the details of your umbrella indemnity plan. Call today for a quote!
