With the new year approaching and tax season around the corner, there is no better time to complete your annual review of your insurance coverage—whether it is your home insurance, car insurance, life insurance, or any other private insurance you have.
We know that most people don’t enjoy thinking about insurance, but it is both necessary and important coverage; so, it is best to review your insurance policies at least once a year to ensure you are getting the right coverage at the best cost for your situation.
The main thing you should be prepared for during your annual insurance review is for your insurance agent to ask you questions about any life changes that have occurred for you in the past year.
These questions are just a few examples of the many life changes that may have occurred throughout the year which have caused your current insurance policy to become out-of-date. Your insurance agent should review your current coverage and consider any life changes you have had to ensure your coverage does not have any gaps in it. They should also help review the coverage with you to ensure you fully understand the coverage you have and answer any of your questions.
Once your insurance agent has confirmed you have all the coverage you need, they can also do a price comparison to see if there are any policy discounts you are not currently taking advantage of or if there is another insurance provider offering the same coverage, or even additional coverage, at a lower cost. You never want to sacrifice proper coverage for price, but it is part of your insurance agent's responsibility to help you find the coverage you need at the best price available.
Another reason it is important to complete an annual insurance review is to ensure both you and your policy are up-to-date and compliant. Laws and regulations governing insurance change frequently, so it is important to make sure your current coverage complies with any changes in these regulations that were made within the last year. But you also need to make sure you are remaining compliant with your policy’s underwriting contact to protect yourself from having a claim denied in the future because of an out-of-date policy.
