3 Types of Insurance You Probably Need

by June Peterson

Insurance is a product that you can purchase to reduce your risks. When you buy it, you might never use it, but you will be glad you have it if you need it. You can buy all kinds of different insurance policies. Some are well known and others are less popular. Here are three of the most common types of insurance policies that people purchase.  

1. Car Insurance

Most adults have car insurance, primarily because most people drive. In fact, driving without insurance is illegal. If you drive without it, you assume many risks that can lead to significant consequences.

Car insurance comes in many types. You can buy a basic plan that might not cost a lot, but this plan might only include liability coverage. You can also buy more comprehensive plans, which often include collision and comprehensive insurance coverages. You can ask an agent to explain your options and to recommend the right types for your situation.

2. Home or Renter's Insurance

If you own or rent a place, you will need the right type of insurance for the dwelling. If you own a house, you will need homeowners' insurance. If you rent a house or apartment, you will need a renters' insurance policy. Home insurance covers the dwelling of your home and the things you own. Renters' insurance covers the things you own. You must choose the right policy when buying this insurance type, and an agent can help you accomplish this goal.  

3. Life Insurance

The third type of insurance you might need is life insurance. Life insurance helps your family after you die, and it comes in many forms. The most affordable type is term life insurance. Term life insurance only lasts for a specific timeframe, though. If you want life insurance that guarantees a payout no matter what age you live to, you might want to select a whole life insurance policy. An agent can provide quotes for both types if you are interested in learning about the costs.

If you need any of these insurance types or all of them, contact an insurance agent. Most insurance agencies sell all three types. If you can buy all your insurance from one company, you might receive a discount on your policy for bundling. You can learn more about these types and others by consulting with an insurance agent of your choice. To learn more, contact an insurance agency near you.
