How Your Insurance Should Change With Your Lifestyle

Insurance Information To Be Aware Of

Once you choose your insurance policies, it can be easy to simply keep paying your premiums and forget about the policy unless you have to make a claim. However, as your life changes, so do your insurance needs. Keep these insurance questions in mind to make sure that you have the right amount of coverage throughout your life.

  • Have you made any updates to your home? Any updates to your home will most likely increase the value of your home, meaning that your existing home insurance coverage will not provide enough protection. Your homeowners insurance is meant to provide enough coverage if you have to completely rebuild your house, so make sure to increase your protection.
  • Are you commuting more than ever? If you got a new job that is further away from your house, you are probably spending more and more time in your car. The more time you spend on the road, the greater your chances are of getting into an accident. Make sure that your auto insurance coverage matches with your risks to keep you safe.
  • Has your family grown? Adding any new members to your family means that you have more people to care for. Checking your life insurance policy to ensure that all of your dependents are named and that you have a large enough policy to meet your growing family’s needs can help to make sure that they will be financially stable when you are gone. You may also want to look over your home inventory to ensure that all of your new assets that come along with your expanding family are protected.

Simple Tips to Stay Safe This Summer

Summer Safety 101

As the weather continues to warm up for summer, you may find yourself spending much more time outdoors with the whole family. While getting some fresh air can be good for your health, there are also many dangers associated with the outdoors. Keep these summer safety tips in mind to ensure that everyone has a safe and fun summer vacation.

  • Cover your head – if you are going on a family bike ride, or your kids are riding their scooters down the street, always make sure to wear well-fitting helmets. Ensure that you have enough helmets for everyone in your family! Mark helmets with your child’s name to ensure that every kid grabs the right helmet when it comes time to head out.
  • Beware of the sun – as the sun shines for more hours each day, it is important to make sure that you protect yourself and your family. Whenever you are headed outside, always put on sunscreen that has at least 15 SPF. Also, bring a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses. If you will be outside for an extended period of time, try to find shade to sit under.
  • Consider water safety – there is no better way to cool down during the summer than taking a dip in your backyard pool. Make sure that children always have the proper supervision when swimming, and those who do not have strong swimming skills wear the proper safety equipment, such as a life jacket. Installing a locking fence around your pool can help to keep children safe this summer.

It is also important to make sure that you look over your insurance policies to ensure that you have the right amount of coverage for any unfortunate situation that you may run into. Contact Alliance Group in Fairport, New York for all of your insurance policy needs.
