There is nothing worse than thinking that your insurance policy will cover your damages after a certain disaster, and then finding that a planning gap in your insurance portfolio has left you needlessly exposed to financial loss. Luckily, if you know how to identify these gaps, you can get coverage to fill them and avoid the devastating financial consequences they can create.
Take a look at a few of the areas many people find gaps in their coverage and see if you share this needless overexposure.
- Floods and Earth Movement: Your home insurance policy may pay for a lot of things, but it won’t pay for damages that occur as the result of flood or earth movement. Instead, you need a separate policy or, in the case of earth movement, a special endorsement should your insurance company allow it.
- Un- and Under-Insured Drivers: Insurance may be required in your state, but that doesn’t mean that every driver is compliant, and if you don’t have un- or under-insured motorist coverage then you may be paying out-of-pocket for damage to your vehicle caused by one of these non-compliant drivers.
- Theft and Vandalism: Having the state-required auto coverage is great, but who pays if your car is stolen or vandalized? And what about if you have a collision? Comprehensive and collision coverage ensures that you get what you deserve after an accident and that you can keep driving, but they aren’t required by your state, so you’ve got to identify the need for this insurance and fill it on your own.
- Preventative Care and Prescriptions: If you have a major medical insurance policy then you might be covered for emergency events and major surgery, but what about your preventative care and pharmaceutical needs? A health insurance policy that covers your everyday medical care would fill that gap and help you get care before you desperately need it.
