About Umbrella Insurance
Umbrella insurance is a type of policy that provides protection for the assets and income of the insured, in addition to the primary policies that are in place. This type of insurance fills in coverage gaps that may exist in those primary policies.
Generally, an umbrella policy is considered to be pure liability coverage that provides additional protection above that which is provided by the regular policy. This type of policy can also provide coverage for claims that may not be covered by primary policies such as invasion of privacy, slander/libel, and false arrest.
How it Works
Umbrella policies are usually purchased in one million dollar increments. If the policy holder has a homeowners policy with a liability limit of $200,000, and an auto policy with a limit of $400,000, with an umbrella policy in place the limits become $1,200,000 on the homeowners policy and $1,400,000 on the auto policy.
