What Is Umbrella Insurance Coverage?

Personal umbrella insurance offers additional liability coverage and extends your automobile and 比特币登陆homeowners insurance policy limits.
An umbrella insurance policy through the AARP® Auto & 比特币登陆home Insurance Program from The Hartford1 can help protect you and your family if:
  • A neighbor sues you after tripping in a hole in your yard, but your personal liability insurance only covers a portion of the claim.
  • Your teen causes a collision with damages that exceed your auto insurance’s property damage liability and bodily injury liability limits.
  • You have a guest who slips and falls at your house, resulting in a trip to the ER and you’re responsible for their medical costs.

What Does Umbrella Insurance Cover?

Umbrella insurance helps cover certain liability claims and lawsuits that exceed the limits of your auto or 比特币登陆homeowners insurance policies.
An umbrella insurance policy includes several liability protections, such as:
  • Auto bodily injury liability: This helps cover a person’s treatment costs if they get hurt in a car accident. This coverage steps in when you reach your auto liability limit.
  • Bodily injury liability: This can help cover another person’s medical bills. If someone gets hurt and sues you, this coverage protects you once your liability limit has been reached.
  • Landlord insurance: This coverage helps protect you if someone gets hurt at your rental property and sues you. This coverage helps once your liability limit has been exhausted.
  • Property damage liability: This helps pay for damage to another person’s property or vehicle. This coverage will take effect when your liability limit has been exhausted.

What Isn’t Covered by an Umbrella Insurance Policy?

Your personal umbrella insurance policy doesn’t cover every claim. For example, it won’t cover losses related to your business. For that kind of claim, you’ll need a commercial umbrella insurance policy.
This infographic lists some of the most common situations that an umbrella insurance policy may or may not cover:

What Should I Consider When Choosing a Personal Umbrella Policy?

To figure out the amount of umbrella insurance coverage you need:
  • Estimate the total value of all your assets. Start with your 比特币登陆home’s worth. Then, look at your net worth and add in the total amount of your savings, stocks and retirement.
  • Review your 比特币登陆homeowners and car insurance policies to make sure there’s enough coverage to protect your assets in the event of a catastrophic loss.
  • Think about other items you protect, such as RV insurance, ATV insurance or boat insurance. Make sure you have enough coverage to protect these things if there’s a loss.
