Adopting a dog? Here’s what you need to know about your insurance.

These claims generally happen one of three ways:

Your pet bites a human.
Your pet injures someone else’s pet.
Your pet injures another human- by knocking them down.  Typically, this is a child, a bicyclist, an elderly person, or someone at a dog park who had their back turned to a wild, running pack of dogs.

Do I need renters insurance if I live with my parents?

Here’s a little known fact:  You don’t have to pay rent to have a “renters” insurance policy.  Don’t need to have a lease.  You don’t have to be living in an apartment building.  If you are living in a house or a space that you don’t own- it is a good idea to buy renters insurance.  Even if the people that own the place are your own parents.

The Joys of Teenagers

Young drivers cost more to insure because to put it bluntly- they are more risky.  They are more likely to get into an accident and when they do get into an accident- it is much more likely to be fatal or have severe bodily injury.  Car accidents are the leading cause of death for teenagers ages 15 – 20.

The cheapest auto insurance possible…

We care whether there is enough money in your underinsured and uninsured motorist coverages so that if you get hit by someone with less-than terrific insurance and you get injured and can no longer do your job… in fact… are injured to the point that you can no longer work- that there is some money to help you with the bills.

We care whether there is enough money to pay for all of the cars you hit on that icy road…  so that if you are sued – you don’t have to sell the house your children are growing up in.

And yes,  we care if you have enough coverage to get a new car if you get into a fight with a deer and the deer wins.

And we want you to care too.

5 Reasons to Start a Trust

“…And although I am definitely NOT a millionaire (not even close!)- my husband and I have been talking with my estate attorney about creating a trust- so that our property and assets will be distributed according to our wishes after we die.  Having a trust in place will save our family money, time, and paperwork.”

What happens to my life insurance money if I die…

When I was a senior in high school my grandfather passed away. He was a business owner (he owned an auto body shop for over 50 years) and he and my grandmother supplemented their income by owning some rental properties. When he died, he left my grandmother an estate including a family farm a few […]

Employer Life Benefits Aren’t Enough

If the company you work for goes out of business- your life insurance benefits may go with them.  The older you get- the more expensive it is to obtain life insurance.  The more likely it is that you have developed health conditions that make life insurance more expensive or possibly- even impossible to get.

When Better Call Saul Comes After YOU!

What do you do when the attorneys come after YOU after an auto accident?

Baby it’s cold out there

Winter in Wisconsin comes in many forms.  Snow, ice, freezing rain, freezing fog (yes, that’s a thing).  All of these winter events make driving very hazardous. In a previous job, I used to drive throughout the state and during the winter months experienced some adventurous drives home.  The goal was to not get into an […]
