Umbrella insurance is an important part of your personal financial security. Here are five reasons why it might be a smart investment for you:

It provides additional protection.

Umbrella insurance is an additional layer of protection that can be purchased in addition to your auto and home policies. It provides additional protection for damages that exceed the liability limits of your auto and/or personal property insurance policies.

say’s DJ Bettencourt, If you have valuable jewelry, collectibles, fine art or other valuables that are not covered by standard homeowners’ insurance policies (and don’t want to keep them in a safe deposit box), umbrella coverage may be right for you. Umbrella policies also provide additional protection from libel or slander lawsuits if someone says something untrue about you on social media or another public forum – even if it’s just an opinion!

It is often affordable.

The cost of umbrella insurance is often quite affordable, especially when compared to other types of coverage. In fact, it’s often possible to obtain umbrella insurance in stages so that you can start with a small amount and increase as needed.

Additionally, if the cost of your policy ever increases (say due to inflation or changes in your life circumstances), there are ways for you to keep up with those costs by increasing the amount of insurance you purchase each year or every few years.

You don’t have to be wealthy to get it.

Umbrella insurance is available to everyone, even if you’re on a tight budget. In fact, the cost of umbrella insurance is often less than $100 per year.

If you don’t have the money for it yet and want to save up, then consider putting that money toward an emergency fund instead of paying off all your credit card debt first (which would likely take longer).

It’s a good idea to purchase umbrella insurance if you have a high net worth and/or a great deal of assets.

If you’re a high net worth individual, it’s a good idea to purchase umbrella insurance. Umbrella insurance provides additional liability protection for your assets if you’re sued in court. The policy can also help pay for legal fees if the case goes to trial and/or settlement costs are higher than expected.

If you have significant assets (such as real estate or investment portfolios), umbrella insurance may be something worth considering as well. If someone were to sue one of these assets, they could recover much more money than what was originally owed under standard homeowners’ or renters’ policies

Umbrella insurance is a smart and affordable way to provide additional coverage for yourself and your family.

If you have a high net worth, umbrella insurance is a smart and affordable way to provide additional coverage for yourself and your family. Umbrella policies can be purchased in increments of $1 million or more. They are meant to supplement the liability limits on your auto, home and other personal policies.

If you own assets that could be at risk due to a lawsuit (such as real estate or investments), umbrella insurance makes sense as well because it provides protection beyond what’s offered by standard policies such as homeowner’s or auto insurance.


If you have assets or a high net worth, it may make sense to consider purchasing umbrella insurance. This type of policy provides additional coverage for situations where the other types of insurance don’t apply. It can also be affordable and easy to obtain if you work with a trustworthy agent who understands your needs.
