Life Insurance FAQs

This is a question that only you can answer, but here are some things to consider:

  • Do you have dependents who rely on your income?
  • Do you have any outstanding debts that would need to be paid off if you died?
  • Do you have any financial goals that you want to achieve for your family?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you may need life insurance.

Term life insurance is a type of life insurance that provides coverage for a specific period of time, such as 10, 20, or 30 years. Permanent life insurance is a type of life insurance that provides coverage for your entire lifetime.

Term life insurance is typically less expensive than permanent life insurance but does not build cash value. Permanent life insurance builds cash value over time, which can be used to pay for premiums, make withdrawals, or borrow against.

The amount of life insurance you need depends on your individual circumstances. Some factors to consider include your family’s financial needs, your debts, and your retirement goals.

Life insurance premiums are based on various factors, including your age, health condition, lifestyle choices, occupation, coverage amount, and the type of policy you choose.

Auto Insurance FAQs

Auto insurance is a type of property insurance that covers your car against damage caused by accidents, theft, and other perils. It can also provide liability coverage, which protects you if you are sued for someone’s injuries that occurred in your car.

Auto insurance is required by law in most states. It is also a good way to protect yourself financially in case of an accident. If you are sued for someone’s injuries, your liability coverage can help pay for their medical bills and other expenses.

There are two main types of auto insurance: liability insurance and comprehensive and collision insurance. Liability insurance covers the cost of damages you cause to other people’s property or injuries to other people. Comprehensive and collision insurance covers the cost of damage to your own car, regardless of who is at fault.

Auto insurance offers a number of benefits, including:

  • Financial protection in the event of an accident
  • Peace of mind knowing that your car is protected
  • Liability coverage that protects you from lawsuits

When calculating your auto insurance premium, several factors are taken into account, including your driving record, age, location, the make and model of your vehicle, annual mileage, coverage limits, deductibles, and any applicable discounts. Our agents will assess these factors to provide you with an accurate premium quote.

Collision coverage protects your vehicle in the event of a collision with another vehicle or object, regardless of fault. It helps cover the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle. While collision coverage is optional, it is highly recommended if you have a newer or more valuable vehicle.

In most cases, auto insurance follows the vehicle rather than the driver. This means that if you lend your car to someone and they are involved in an accident, your insurance coverage typically applies. However, it’s important to review your policy and discuss specific scenarios with our agents to ensure you have the necessary coverage.

Florida residents are required by law to have $10,000 in personal injury protection insurance and at least $10,000 in property damage liability insurance.

Personal auto insurance policies typically do not cover vehicles used for business purposes. If you use your vehicle for business-related activities, such as deliveries or transporting clients, it’s important to discuss your specific needs with our agents. We can help you find appropriate commercial auto insurance coverage options.

If you need to make changes or update your auto insurance policy, such as adding a driver, changing coverage limits, or updating your vehicle information, simply contact our agency. Our agents will assist you in making the necessary adjustments to ensure your policy reflects your current situation and provides adequate coverage.
