Whether you're graduating from high school or college, this can be one of the most exciting times in your life. But don't allow your enthusiasm for freedom and the future to interrupt your good sense and the process of purchasing the right insurance policies for all of your risks.
Whether you are moving into a dorm or an apartment, you need specific protections for property such as your computers, clothes, and furniture as well as protection against potential liabilities. If someone should be injured while visiting your apartment you could be found liable for their injuries and the subsequent medical expenses, damages, and lost wages. A renter’s insurance policy will pay for many of these expenses while also protecting you from the loss of your property after an insurable incident.
You may be permitted to remain on your parent’s group health insurance policy if you are going to school full-time or are under the age of 26. But don't take for granted that your parent’s policy can still cover you or is even the best option. Instead, talk to an insurance agent to ensure that you are properly covered and to find out if there are any less expensive alternatives available.
If you've been on your parent’s auto insurance policy, graduating from high school or college may mark the time when you should look into your own auto insurance coverage. Auto insurance rates can vary based on many factors including the amount of driving you do and the location where you park your car. Talk to your insurance agent to discover the best options for your auto insurance coverage.
Locking in life insurance rates when you're young and healthy is extremely important. Insurance premiums will only rise as you age, so taking out a first or supplemental policy when you graduate is a good idea. If you take out a whole life policy you may then be able to tap into cash values for tax-free loans in a few years while also guaranteeing your family some benefits for final expenses should you pass away.
