Do I need an umbrella?

A lot of people sue, and they sue for a lot. The more assets you have, the more protection you need — particularly when court awards are trending increasingly higher. An umbrella policy offers that extra protection. Plus, it’s valuable if you add a teen driver to your insurance policy. A majority of the claims covered by umbrella policies involve auto accidents, so having an umbrella policy can give you peace of mind when you or a family member are on the road.

Umbrella insurance is relatively inexpensive, especially when compared to the amount of coverage you receive. In fact, you might be eligible for a discount if you add umbrella to your MILE-STONE policy. Talk to Customer Care to learn more or to purchase an umbrella policy.
