It’s 2012! Is Your Insurance Up to Date?

There’s no better time to review your current state of insurance than at the beginning of a new year! To make sure you’re properly covered, here’s our short list of areas to evaluate:

  • Life Insurance: Is your life insurance optimized for paying estate taxes? Do you know about grandparents’ policies—a 21st century spin on an old tradition? Have you included a provision for long-term care coverage?
  • Flood Insurance: How might early 2012’s melting snow and heavy spring rainfall affect your home? Most homeowner policies don’t include flood coverage—will you be protected in case of water damage?
  • Home and Contents Insurance: After the holidays, there are more than thank-you notes to be written. Have you added new valuables to your homeowner’s policy? Make sure they’re listed in order to be fully covered.
  • Personal Liability: Do you have sufficient liability coverage? Should you consider an umbrella policy? If you’ve added a new car, a new driver or a new caregiver to your household, have you updated your insurance accordingly?
  • Annual Policy Review: Many people overpay for coverage they don’t need, simply because they don’t set aside time to evaluate it. Sit down with Mavco to review your coverage and make sure you’re maximizing all available discounts!

4 Reasons to Plan Ahead for Spring with Flood Insurance

Flood is the most common natural disaster in the United States, accounting for over $2 billion in property damage each year—and since even an inch of water in your home could mean thousands of dollars in repairs, flooding is too serious of a threat not to plan ahead for. With that in mind, here are four reasons to consider getting flood insurance now:

  1. Floods Can Happen Anywhere. Flooding happen in all fifty states, meaning no one is immune from potential damage. Statistics show that one out of every four insured flood situations happen outside high-risk flood areas. If a flood damages your home, will you be protected?
  2. Home Insurance Doesn’t Cover Flooding. Contrary to what many homeowners believe, most household insurance policies do not cover flood damage. You don’t have to wait until it’s too late to find out you’re not covered—Mavco can set you up with protection right away.
  3. Federal Assistance Will Be a Loan. In response to disasters, the government may offer financial assistance, but it will likely come in the form of loans—loans that must be paid back with interest, putting you not only in a tragic situation but also a financially costly one.
  1. Flood Insurance Could Be Your Best Investment. With Mavco, you can be sure you’ll have a flood insurance policy that provides complete protection—so if and when a flood does occur, you'll have peace of mind knowing you'll be taken care of. When you compare the low costs of coverage with the incredible expense of managing flood damage, you’ll see that obtaining flood insurance could be your single best investment.
