Insurance for My Life – And Yours
Since I got this job blogging and managing social media for F.A. Peabody, the old knowledge from my insurance agent days is finding its way back to the working parts of my brain. I’m starting to at least think about insurance again. I’ve been thinking specifically how insurance works for my life – and yours.
My 16-year-old daughter is about to get her driver’s license. I’ve sat in the passenger seat of my old mini-van for 35 hours preparing her, and myself, for this. She is ready. I’m not so sure that I am. I got the quotes from my friend at the office, and our insurance premiums will certainly take a hit. But, I guess it will be offset by the gas savings now that our 35 hours of practice are completed. I’m grateful that my daughter does pretty well in school and can get the good student discount. What’s really cool about our website is that I downloaded the form that she needs for this. There’s quite a few forms on our website that you might need for your insurance.
My husband has been a hunter for years, but I never really thought about liability coverage for him while he’s out in the woods until this year, when he bought my 13-year-old son a shotgun and decided to take him bird hunting. Our first priority is to train our son about gun safety and the rules of hunting. But insurance coverage is not far behind. That’s something you want to talk to your agent about. You might as well do a whole review while you’re at it, because your agent will definitely know the answers! Fill out this form and bring it with you.
Admittedly, insurance is usually the last thing people want to think about. But it’s better to think about it before, as we say, “things happen.” Now that I’m tuning into it a bit more, I will think ahead to future insurance needs – Coverage for kids’ stuff at college dorms? Wedding insurance? Medicare Supplements? Ok, now I’m just getting ridiculous. I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it!
