How much umbrella insurance do I need?

Figuring out how much umbrella insurance you need in Pittsburgh, PA can be tricky. You don’t want to spend too much on coverage that you don’t need, but you also don’t want to be caught without enough coverage if something catastrophic happens. Here are some tips from Daniel Carinici Agency LLC:

How Much Coverage Do I Need?

Pennsylvania generally requires a minimum of $50,000 in umbrella insurance coverage. However, you may want to consider carrying even more than the minimum required amount.

The general rule of thumb is that you should have umbrella insurance that covers at least the amount of your assets. This way, if you are sued and found liable for an accident or incident, your personal assets will be protected.

Of course, every situation is different, and there are other factors to consider when deciding how much umbrella insurance to carry. For example, if you are employed in a high-risk profession such as healthcare or law, you may want to consider carrying more umbrella insurance than someone with a lower-risk job.

How Do I Choose an Umbrella Insurance Policy?

Now that you know the rule of thumb for how much umbrella insurance you should carry, it’s time to start shopping for a policy. When comparing policies, be sure to pay attention to the details to get the coverage you need at a price you can afford. Some things to look for include:

  • The amount of coverage offered
  • The deductible
  • Any limitations or exclusions
