What is a personal umbrella liability policy? 

The personal umbrella liability policy is designed to increase your liability protection. This single policy acts as an "umbrella" over all of your other personal liability policies — home, car, boat, RV, etc., so you have a higher personal liability limit, than what would otherwise be available. In certain circumstances, an umbrella insurance policy may provide personal liability coverage that is otherwise excluded from your other policies. For example, an umbrella insurance policy provides coverage anywhere in the world, whereas your car insurance policy usually provides coverage in only the US and Canada. 

When to file a claim and when not to file a claim?

An agent who is proactive will ask the right questions to make sure the policy meets the needs of their clients. However if the needs of the client does change they should have regular contact with their agent.  AZ Insurance Team will reach out to our clients a couple times a year to make sure their needs have not changed.

Bottom line, when thinking about filing a claim you should contact AZ Insurance Team not the 1-800 number for customer service. If you call customer service and say you want to file a claim there is no way to remove it even if they do not pay out and your rates will increase. AZ Insurance Team will help to consult you and make sure you made the right decision. 

How do I know if I need a personal umbrella liability policy?  

It used to be that the only people who needed personal umbrella liability policies were wealthy individuals, who had sizable amounts of personal assets that would be at risk in a lawsuit. However, in our very litigious society, even individuals with modest incomes and assets are often subjects of large lawsuits. Since those with modest incomes are even less able to pay damages than a wealthy individual, AZ Insurance Team recognizes the need to provide coverage limits greater than what can be obtained from their homeowner insurance or car insurance policies.
