What is Umbrella Insurance? An easy guide to umbrella insurance: A blog around umbrella insurance and its benefits.
Umbrella insurance is an extra layer of protection, particularly for those with high incomes, who have assets to protect or own a home.
Umbrella insurance is a form of liability insurance that provides extra protection over and above your existing policies.
It is not a substitute for other types of insurance; if you need Auto Insurance or Home Insurance, you’ll still need to have those policies in place.
In other words: umbrella insurance can help protect your assets in case something bad happens.
If you have high income or own valuable assets such as a home or cars with equity in them, it's especially important for you to have umbrella coverage.
It’s also important to note that umbrella insurance does not cover all risks: it only covers the excess amount over what’s already covered by your other policies. Make sure the underlying policies are sufficient on their own before purchasing an umbrella policy on top.
