Why do I need a personal liability umbrella insurance policy?
All of your insurance policies have limits. Your auto insurance, homeowners insurance, RV insurance, boat insurance, motorcycle insurance and/or business owner’s policy may not be sufficient in the event of a major claim.
An umbrella liability policy will “kick in” where you’re existing coverage reaches its’ limit, up to limit of the umbrella policy purchased. This extra layer of protection ensures that in the event of a major claim against you or your family, that your financial well-being will be protected.
