LINCOLN, R.I. - It’s National Hurricane Preparedness Week, and Amica Insurance suggests reviewing insurance policies in advance of these storms.
Amica is sharing the following tips to consider before hurricane season begins:
- Locate insurance documents and thoroughly review them: Become familiar with important details pertaining to hurricane damage, including coverage amounts and deductibles.
- Create a home inventory of belongings: Even if you’ve already taken stock of these items, it’s a good idea to figure out how much everything is worth. In the event of a disaster, you may need to replace some or all of those belongings.
- Prepare your home and auto to ensure coverage: Often, insurance policies state that certain precautions must be taken by a homeowner in order to maintain coverage in the event of a hurricane. Review policies closely, and create a checklist to stay prepared.
- Make a list of any questions or concerns: Write them down, and call your insurance company as soon as possible. Be sure to document the answers.
