National Insurance Awareness Day 2021June 28, 2021
Monday, June 28 has been designated National Insurance Awareness Day. Your agent is ready to assist you in reviewing your insurance coverage and any potential needs for coverage. You should consider carrying insurance for property you own, property you rent to or from others, and liability for your personal protection. A call to your agent can assist in determining if you have adequate coverage. Be sure to mention what has changed since any of your existing policies were issued.
Some changes are significant and can affect your coverage, so be sure and discuss any changes you have made. Adding or removing wood heat, other adults living in the home, renovations and purchases are examples of things you should discuss. Please don’t wait for a claim to happen before you contact your agent!
Also consider an annual update to your personal inventory to be sure you have a current list of all your belongings. If you don’t already have a list, you can download a PDF file or order a hard copy booklet for tracking your home inventory from the Missouri Department of Insurance: https://insurance.mo.gov/consumers/home/homeinventorychecklist.php.
We would love the opportunity to serve you by providing for your insurance needs. Find an independent agency in your area that represents our company: https://bartonmutualgroup.com/agents.
This information is meant to be a broad overview and should not be the only source you consult for evaluating your risk management needs. Adherence to the above guidelines does not ensure coverage under your policy, nor does it guarantee your risk will be accepted by an insurance company or that your property or operations are safe, healthful, or in compliance with laws, rules, or regulations. Coverage is determined by specific policy provisions, limitations and exclusions that can only be expressed in the policy itself.
