Personal Umbrella Insurance
People feel their insurance policy, whether it is homeowners or auto, will cover any liability lawsuit resulting from an accident. With skyrocketing awards, chances are high that if you are sued, you won’t have enough insurance coverage available. You’ll end up bankrupt without umbrella coverage.
Take a New York case titled Kelly v. Peterson where a simple auto collision stemming from one driver running a red light led to a $7 million award. The case was appealed and the new judge reduced the amount by approximately $1.5 million. Would your insurance policy cover the full $5.5 million owed to the other driver?
Too many people faced with these exorbitant judgments end up losing their assets and filing for bankruptcy. Don’t let that happen to you and your family! Umbrella coverage protects the assets you’ve worked hard to acquire.
Another benefit to personal umbrella policies involves unexpected cases. If you’re sued for slander or something not covered under your homeowner or auto policy, personal umbrella coverage is there to protect you.
Personal umbrella liability insurance helps protect you against huge liability lawsuits and protects you from lost wages while you are in court. The policy increases your liability protection by increments of $1 million. Adding umbrella coverage to your auto or homeowners insurance policy is the only way to ensure you’re financial standing cannot be affected.

Retirement savings plans are tax-deferred. You save money because your weekly or monthly contribution is deducted before your income is taxed. You’ll pay fewer taxes. Only once you are withdrawing from your retirement account do taxes come into play. By that point, your income is usually lower than when you were working, so you’ll likely be in a lower income tax bracket and still pay less.
If you invest in annuities, you can invest a lump sum of money or pay monthly or yearly. You can choose to receive payments immediately or delay them for a future date. Once you retire and wish to receive monthly payments, you’ll receive some of your investment and the dividends that account has earned. If you withdraw on your annuity before the age of 59.5, you are subject to penalties.
