Making sure your child is prepared for college is one of the biggest priorities for a parent. Ensuring that your family is protected no matter where life takes them is our biggest priority. At Soucy Insurance, we work hard to make certain that your insurance package offers complete insurance protection.
If your child is living in a dorm or off-campus housing it is important to ensure that their possessions are protected. "Expensive sports equipment, electronics and furniture are increasingly showing up on college campuses today, so parents need to make sure these items are insured," said Michael Barry, vice president, media relations, for the Insurance Information Institute.
For students residing in dorms, their possessions may be covered under their parents' homeowners' insurance. However, students living in off-campus housing may not be covered under their parents' homeowners or renters policy.
Additionally, did you know that if your child was driving the family car and is now away at college, at least 100 miles from home, you may be eligible for a policy discount?
There are several insurance considerations that need to be addressed when readying your child, and yourself, for college. For a complimentary policy review and to speak with one of our experienced agents, please call Soucy Insurance Agency today at 762.2218.
