Insurance Implications After the Loss of a Loved One

Guidance Through This Trying Time

Unfortunately, some of the most trying experiences in life leave us having to rummage through paperwork to get everything in order. While mourning for the loss of a loved one should be at the forefront, it is important that you remember the importance of changing names on your insurance policies once you have had a moment to grieve. The last thing you want after this trying experience is to be refused coverage when you need it most. If you are wondering how to change names on policies, allow these informational points to guide you!

In order to receive coverage for the home that was left behind to you, you must update your homeowners insurance policy. Failure to do so may result in a drop of coverage when you need it most. Therefore, make sure to make the call within a reasonable amount of time to receive coverage.

If your loved one also left behind a car, you will need to inform your auto insurance provider immediately. The only time the car will be covered before the name of the policy is updated is if the executor or administrator of their estate is using the car for maintenance purposes, not personal use.
