Insurance and Your College Student
If you have a child going to college this fall, there probably are a lot of things on your to-do list. But don't forget to address a couple of insurance issues:
To discuss these or any other insurance questions, contact us at 847-572-0800 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Let us know your child's address at school, so we can add that address to your policies.
- If your child is not taking a car to school and if school is more than 100 miles from home, you probably are eligible for a discount on your auto premium. If your child is taking a car, remind the child that he or she should never lend the car to someone else.
- You probably should not buy dorm insurance offered through the school, because your homeowner's insurance covers your child's property at school. The coverage is subject to your deductible, but you can add first-dollar coverage for specific items such as computers and iPads.
