According to a study published by the Insurance Information Institute, 59% of renters do not have renters insurance. Chances are you know one of them. If they experience a fire or break-in, are their belongings covered? The answer is no since laptops, gaming systems, televisions, furniture and clothing are not covered under the landlord’s policy. Share the following with them and you might help them prevent future headaches.
- Loss of Use: If a renter’s apartment is deemed unlivable due to a disaster covered under their policy, their additional living expenses will be covered. No need to crash on a friend’s couch for months – hotel bills and meals may be included while their living space is being repaired.
- Liability Claims: Paying out of pocket for property damage and bodily injury lawsuits might be more than a renter can handle. If someone slips and falls on their property and sues them, medical payments can be covered up to the liability limit.
- Additional Coverages: Optional features include lock replacement, identity fraud, refrigerated product loss and more. Educators can help you determine any additional coverage you may need depending on your situation.
