Umbrellas are not needed when the sun is shining. But they are needed for that rainy day. For when the rain comes down in sprinkles or in downpours, it helps to have an umbrella handy. It’s the same with insurance. Umbrella insurance covers those unexpected things that can happen for which you are not prepared. It is also like gap insurance because it covers the "gaps" that other types of insurance do not cover.
What Umbrella Insurance is For
Types of situations umbrella insurance covers are listed below:
- Homeowners’ insurance
- Boat or RV insurance
- Personal liability insurance
- Property damage (yours or someone else’s)
- Auto (gap coverage)
There may be other types of things umbrella insurance will cover, as well. It depends on the limits of your primary insurance and the terms of your specific umbrella insurance policy. One way to learn more about what your policy might cover is to visit your Western Trail Insurance Firm that covers the Oshkosh NE area. They have experience selling and maintaining policies for an umbrella or gap insurance policy and they can map out a plan for you, as well.
How Much Do I Need?
The amount of coverage you need will depend on what the value of something is based on how hard it would be to replace it, the standards and limits of your primary policy, and other factors. If you think you have some high-risk areas where you are not covered enough, you may want to invest in umbrella insurance for that extra protection.

Remember, umbrellas are for that rainy day.
