Since the whole point of personal umbrella insurance is to protect your assets from a risk, it makes sense to buy
it if you have assets to protect.
There is no shortage of unforeseen circumstances that could impose a real risk to your family’s assets and financial future.
Personal umbrella coverage is critical coverage, designed to help protect you from life’s unexpected events.
Also umbrella coverage can step in when any underlying policy’s coverage limit runs out like auto, homeowners, landlord, motorcycle and yacht etc.
A personal umbrella policy can help you protect you in situations, such as:
If you have an underlying auto policy that covers $250,000 in bodily injury and $1 million personal umbrella
policy. After big auto accident, you’re found liable for a $1 million judgement.
Your underlying coverage “runs out” at $250,000 -meaning you’re potentially on the hook for the remainder.
That’s where your personal umbrella coverage kicks in, picking up where your underlying a auto policy stops and covering the remaining $750,000.
Kid slips on your deck while he or she plays and breaks his or her wrist. Hospital and doctor visits can be covered under your underlying homeowners policy. But the limit is “runs out” from coverage limit, umbrella coverage will steps in to cover the remaining cost.
The cost is depends on many factors like number of drivers, cars and driving records etc. where you live and
how good a risk the insurance company thinks you are.
But roughly the cost of $1mil /yr. is at around $200 and another $100 for each additional million.
