Preparing to send your child off to college? While bedding and school schedule planning may be at the top of your to-do-list, analyzing the insurance implications of the big move should be number 1. Gathered are some helpful tips to guide you through the process:
- If your new college student will be living in a dorm, their personal belongings will receive a limited amount of coverage through your homeowners’ insurance policy.
- If your child will be moving into an apartment, their personal belongings will require a renters’ insurance policy in order to receive protection.
- If your child will be bringing their car with them to school, you will need to inform your insurance provider so that all state laws and regulations are followed.
- If your child will be leaving their car at home for the school year, you will want to contact your auto insurance provider to see if you are eligible to receive the resident student discount.
