Car Insurance, Home Insurance, Renters Insurance, and Marriage

Getting married is such a fun and exciting time but it also comes with a lot of tasks afterwards. One of those important tasks is combining your households, especially your car insurance and renters or homeowner's insurance. You'll need to add to your new spouse to your auto insurance policy as a listed driver and to your renters or homeowner's insurance policy. As an added benefit you may also qualify for additional discounts depending on what the insurance company/carrier has available such as a multi-car discount and/or multi-policy discount and if a car has smart technology, you may also receive a discount for that as well.

A few other important things to think about is re-evaluating the amount of personal property since you'll most likely be combining two households and/or adding all those wedding gifts. Most people don't think about their wedding rings either. If you have and/or your spouse have a valuable wedding ring(s) it may be beneficial to add an endorsement to your policy. You want to make sure you have enough coverage should a claim need to be made in the future or you have stolen jewelry. For more valuable jewelry you may be asked to provide an appraisal or an updated appraisal if the one you have now is more than 5 years old.
