Umbrella Policies

Understanding Umbrella Policies  

Standard homeowner insurance policies cover liability a person might have for injuries or property damage suffered by someone else. They’re designed to cover accidents for which the insured person might owe tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. However, sometimes the person might cause an accident so catastrophic that the damages are $1 million or more.  

To provide additional protection when an accident uses up the amounts of insurance provided by the other policies, insurance companies offer Personal Umbrella policies. Once the liability limits are exhausted on your home policy, your Umbrella policy takes over and provides another layer of liability protection. 

Consider this:  

While lighting a bonfire in your backyard, your tree catches fire then spreads quickly to your home and neighbor’s garage. Personal Umbrella can help cover costly repairs when Homeowner's liability is reached.  

You should consider purchasing a Personal Umbrella policy if: 

  • Your total assets are greater than your underlying liability limits. 
  • You often host guests on your property. 
  • Your residence includes a swimming pool. 
  • You own waterfront property, a farm, or a ranch. 
  • You own many rental properties.
