Umbrella coverage is aptly named — it gives you added coverage on top of your personal insurance (like homeowners, auto, watercraft, or motorcycle). But how does it relate to you and your current insurance policy? Here's a basic overview to help you understand the coverage.
You never know when you might get in an auto accident — or who the other driver will be. According to the Insurance Research Council, one in seven drivers doesn’t carry auto insurance. If your car is hit by one of those drivers, it could mean substantial costs to you.
That’s where uninsured motorists and underinsured motorists coverage come in. They often are built right into your auto policy, although the coverage requirements vary by state.
This year our company celebrates 120 years of serving policyholders. What started in Julius Bubolz’s farmhouse has grown to become a property and casualty insurance company with coverages for businesses, homes, autos, farms, agribusinesses, nonprofits, and special events in 12 states.
