What Does Renters Insurance Cover?
Renter insurance is normally a special package that combines the following coverages:
Personal liability provides protection against claims someone else makes against you in the event of an accident or injury.
Premises medical coverage
Premises medical coverage pays the medical expenses of others who are accidentally injured on the property you rent.
Additional living expense
Additional living expense pays for your additional living expenses if your home is deemed unlivable and you have to stay elsewhere temporarily.
Personal property (contents) coverage
Standard renter policies only cover the actual cash value at the time of the loss. Some personal property, like gold or jewelry, has a specific dollar limit that the policy will cover.
The limits in your policy may be less than the value of your property, so you may want to buy additional coverage to cover it. Our agents can help you accurately determine these amounts so that you can have peace of mind knowing that you are protected.
