2017 Insurance Resolutions

2016 – what a year! We lost Harambe, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series, and America elected a new president. It’s been a wild ride, but it’s over now. It’s almost time to say hello to 2017! On your list of New Year’s resolutions, be sure to include some insurance resolutions.  The first step to forming your New Year’s insurance resolutions is to consider any changing circumstances that might take place in 2017.

Auto Policies

Will the number of drivers in your house change? For example, maybe you have a teenager who will begin driving this year. You should start thinking about the process of adding a new driver to your policy and, possibly, another car. Don’t forget to ask your AWS agent about good student discounts! If you have just welcomed a new baby, consider making changes to your auto insurance policy. With one parent staying at home now, your auto insurance needs have changed.

Home Insurance

Did you receive any jewelry or other high-value items this holiday season? If so, you will want to make sure your policy covers it. This warrants speaking with an agent about protecting your items.

If you haven’t done a home inventory recently (or ever) this is the time to do one. A home inventory will save you a lot of trouble if tragedy is ever to befall you. It will ensure that you can replace your possessions if your home is destroyed or burglarized. Most importantly, make a resolution to sit down with your AWS agent! The more informed you are about what exactly your policy covers, the better decisions you can make. Chatting with your agent can help you find potential gaps in your coverage, as well. 

We know all of these changes can be a little overwhelming! Remember that you can always speak to an agent at AWS to be sure your current policies are providing you adequate coverage.
