A personal umbrella policy (PUP) provides extra liability protection above and beyond what is provided by your home, auto, or personal liability and any other recreational vehicles such as ATV, boat and/or snowmobile. A PUP is written in increments of $1,000,000. It becomes an “umbrella” of extra protection over your activities in life should you get involved in a liability accident or claim.
PUP’s provide two types of coverage:
- Extra liability limits above the current “underlying” policies of auto, home, ATV, boat or
- Liability protection outside or in addition to that provided by the “underlying” policies.
