What is an umbrella policy?
An umbrella policy extends all of your current liability coverage on your homeowners policy up to another $1, $2, or $5 million. In the event that you get sued, this ensures you extra coverage.
If you're like most people, you probably think umbrella insurance is just for big corporations or high-income households – but you couldn't be more wrong. This type of insurance is a great idea, because you never know when an unexpected event will happen; for example, a neighbor getting hurt on your property. Many lawsuits today settle for far more than the amount covered on most homeowner's policies.
Something to keep in mind: Most of the companies that offer umbrellas will require a certain amount of coverage on your auto and liability on your home. It can change from company to company, but oftentimes it is 250/500 for the liability on your auto and $300,000 for the liability on your home.

Considering its relative low cost and the level of protection it provides, umbrella policies are one of the best deals in insurance today.
