Comprehensive car insurance covers losses if your car is stolen or damaged by something other than a collision. This includes:
The maximum comprehensive coverage payout is the actual cash value of your vehicle minus the deductible you choose. Comprehensive coverage limits and deductibles are state-mandated and required if you have a loan or lease your vehicle.
Your car insurance covers only repairs needed as the result of an accident, vandalism, or a weather event. If you’re concerned about covering other repairs, consider adding collision and comprehensive insurance to your policy.
Deductibles are the amount of money that you pay out-of-pocket before your insurance kicks in. Deductibles typically range from $100 to $1,000 and only apply to comprehensive and collision coverage. Higher deductibles keep monthly premiums low, but your deductible should be no more than you can afford in the event of a loss.

Home insurance differs from state to state. It typically does not cover damages from natural disasters such as earthquakes, tornadoes and floods. You can, however, purchase policies to cover these events.
Home insurance policies will consider home improvements, your location, your health status, and how you secure your home.
You can qualify for additional discounts by bundling your home and auto insurance, being a long-time customer, having a history of no claims, or choosing a higher deductible.
No. Home insurance is not tax deductible. The IRS will not allow you to itemize any insurance premiums, even if they are included in your mortgage payments.

Standard home insurance policies require water damage to be sudden and internal, with the requirement that the water has never touched the outside ground. This means the water damage must be the result of one of the 16 perils covered by homeowner’s insurance. Your policy will likely cover damage from:

Additional situations where your standard home policy may not cover water damage are:

Yes. Your policy renews automatically with no medical exam required. There is a chance that premiums may increase if carriers raise prices. If this happens, we can look at other options to make sure that you’re still covered within your budget.
The term of your coverage is dependent upon how long you expect your beneficiaries to depend on your income.

Coverage for your spouse should be in effect until retirement.

If your coverage is rated based upon size of payroll, adding additional payroll costs should be reported right away so that your premium can be adjusted to reflect this change. This will invariably result in additional premium costs, and that increase will depend upon the type of business you are engaged in.
With many carriers, yes. More revenue often equates to more risk/liability, and the carrier needs to charge a premium to properly cover the risk.
A Form E filing is an electronic filing for truckers filed with the FMCSA that is tied to their MC# and shows whether the carrier is current or not with their liability insurance. This is generally verified by a police officer if pulled over or at a highway weigh station.
