As a parent, helping your child find the proper insurance coverage provides peace of mind when it comes to life’s unexpected events. Read these five tips about insurance that will help your child transition into life after college and plan for the future.
1. Enroll in Their Own Auto Insurance Plan
Up until now, your child may have been on your auto insurance. Many states, however, require that they have their own auto insurance once they have their own residence. Talk to an independent agent about the requirements in their state to make sure they are covered.
2. Get Renters or Homeowners
For your child, moving into their own home is a big accomplishment and they need rental insurance to protect their belongings. Whether they rent or own, there are coverages available to meet their specific needs.
3. Learn About Liability Insurance
Although many renter’s insurance plans include some liability coverage, it may be worthwhile to have extra coverage to protect your child’s liability at home and while in an automobile. An umbrella policy provides coverage limits beyond a standard insurance policy and can help protect your child as they build their future.
4. Check Their Benefits
As your child starts their professional career, they may have benefits like health insurance, life insurance and a retirement saving plan. Once they know what their company offers, you can help them decide if additional coverage is needed.
5. Work with a Professional
