How much will this coverage cost?
The cost of home or renters insurance varies by insurance company and specifics about the home or dwelling, such as the year it was built and the type of dwelling to be insured. A licensed insurance counselor can provide you with an accurate quote based on your situation and apply any discounts you’re eligible for.
For quotes, make a phone call to speak with a trained insurance counselor, licensed and based in the U.S. If the quote you get is better than what you’re paying now, you can switch right over the phone.
What if my employment status changes?
When you leave or retire from your employer, you can continue your home or renters coverage without interruption, subject to applicable law and the policies' terms and conditions. Although payroll deduction will no longer be available, you can opt for other payment methods such as direct bank account deduction, credit card billing or home billing.
When would my new policy begin?
Almost immediately, if you would like! If you are accepted for coverage, your insurance can start the day after you apply for the coverage over the phone.
