What Does Life Cost

Written by Business Insurance on . Posted in Uncategorized

Farm insurance is not simple business because of all the moving parts. However, three things that will be familiar are auto insurance, homeowners insurance, and life insurance. Those are baseline topics that probably are not always considered by non-farmers.   Consider it though; agribusiness insurance is just a mouthful of goop to someone that is not familiar with it, at least most likely right? While the later three insurances are familiar to most of the general populace across the United States, the non-business owner might not consider everything that goes into types of insurance – especially farm insurance.  

Auto, Home, And Life The Gateway Insurance

It would be interesting to discover what is the most common insurance Americans first get on their own. Would it be farm insurance? Aside from that one side journey, cars are abundant in the U.S. There are approximately 6 million car accidents annually across the nation. The three most common auto insurance claims are for fender benders, theft, and whiplash.   Distracted drivers are a dangerous driver. It is 23 times higher a chance to crash if silly enough to text while driving. Although accidents do happen, and while not ideal it might not be terrible. However, a driver will have an accident around every 17.9 years so please be an alert driver.   Renters insurance is like the middle child between auto and home insurances, but it can be truly beneficial under bad circumstances. Between 2011 and 2016 renters insurance policyholders increased by 12 percent peaking at 41 percent of total renters. Home insurance is understood relatively well by 79 percent of its customer base. That is the amount of aware policyholders that know insurance covers possessions during a home invasion.   American homeowners are heavily insured as a group. Almost all of them have the most basic of coverage. Fully 93 percent of all American homeowners have minimum homeowners insurance reliably.  

Life Insurance

The final insurance really is the final insurance. Death is guaranteed after all. Health insurance is really a necessary precursor to life insurances though. According to the CDC over 28.6 million people have no healthcare insurances as of 2016.   In 2017 around 84 percent of survey respondents agreed people require some amount of life insurance. As of 2015 an Insurance Barometer Study found that individuals with no life coverage believe it is over three times more expensive than it actually is.   Insurances are there as a coverage or safety net. It is always better to be overly prepared than underprepared. Think of it like a winter excursion. It is always possible to take layers off if you have them on when leaving the house, but what are you going to do if there is a flash freeze and you left in flip flops?
