As this year begins, it offers the perfect time to reflect on your life over the past 12 months – what worked for you and what didn’t. As you take stock of where you are, why not take the dawning of a new year as a prompt to check out your insurance policies and decide what should change.
Your insurance portfolio should always be a work in progress because, just as your life changes constantly, your insurance coverage must change to fit your circumstances. Whether it’s your auto insurance or the coverage on your home or maybe the amount of life insurance you carry, the new year is a good time to take a close look at what you have versus what you might now need.
Now you might be wondering why do this and, in fact, how to go about evaluating your insurance. The reason to do it is to be best prepared for whatever comes your way. As to how to do it: you might want to start by focusing on what you see as the worst that might happen to your vehicle, your home, your health/life. When you’ve come to terms with those scenarios, then decide what role your insurance portfolio needs to play should you need to recover from a setback. Armed with that information, you will know what your insurance needs are; and then it’s time to schedule a visit with your insurance agent to review your current policies and discuss your options.
