Are you interested in endorsing your policy for earthquake coverage?
Earthquakes happen in New England more frequently than you might think. There were 38 recorded earthquakes in New England from 9/22/06 to 12/29/06 (see http://aki.bc.edu/cgi-bin/NESN/recent_events.pl). Your homeowners policy does NOT cover damage resulting from earthquakes, but it can be endorsed to do so.

Are you interested in a Personal Umbrella Policy?
If you have a claim that exhausts your home or auto liability coverage, you can be held personally liable for additional damages.

If properly endorsed, your personal umbrella policy can also provide coverage for you while serving as a director or officer of a nonprofit organization.

Do you carry life insurance currently? In what amount? Did you know that if you carry group life insurance through work, your life insurance policy terminates when you leave your job? It may be worth your while to consider buying your own life insurance policy now. Waiting will only increase its cost.
Question - Do you have enough life insurance to take care of your family in the event that they lose your income?

Do you have disability coverage in place now?
Disability insurance protects your most valuable asset, your income. If you are self-employed, the need for disability insurance is especially important because it will cover you in the event that you are injured on the job.

Have you been advised about Long Term Care insurance?
Have you thought about the cost of a nursing home or home health care in the event that you are unable to take care of yourself? The average cost of a nursing home is around $5,000 per month. Long term care insurance is the least expensive way to pay for this cost.

YES
NO
Has your commute or use of your vehicle changed? Are there any additional drivers not listed on your current auto policy?
Your premium could change, if the distance that you drive to work has changed. Also, if your car is used for business purposes (other than commuting to and from work), it may be necessary to endorse your auto policy for 'incidental business use.' Finally, it is important to list all licensed household drivers (or anyone else who uses your vehicles on a regular basis) on your auto insurance policy.
A claim may be denied in the event that an unlisted driver is in an accident.

YES
NO
Do you need insurance on any recreational vehicles or watercraft?
ATV's, snowmobiles, boats, wave runners, etc. need to be insured separately or endorsed on your homeowners insurance policy for liability and physical damage coverage. Any vehicles registered for use on the roadways (such as mototcycles or motorhomes) should be added to your existing auto policy or covered under a separate auto policy.

YES
NO
Does the insurance on your business or rental properties cover Equipment Breakdown?
Insurance covering commercial property excludes coverage for equipment breakdown. Equipment breakdown includes such things as pressure vessels (e.g,, boilers) that burst, phone lines or computer networks that go down and refrigeration units that fail. In each of these cases substantial property damage or loss of income can result that would otherwise not be covered without endorsing your policy for equipment breakdown coverage.
