Having liability insurance is an important way to keep yourself and your finances protected. When you have both home and auto policies, there is another type of insurance that you may need for better protection. Umbrella insurance is a unique type of coverage that adds to what you have in your other policies.

How Umbrella Insurance Works
More Liability Coverage
Both home and auto policies come with different types of coverage, and one of those is liability protection. The problem is that many of these policies have too little liability protection built-in. This can mean that your policy doesn’t pay all of the liability you owe for medical bills and property damage. When this happens, you end up with an overage, and that is yours to pay from your own pocket. To protect against this happening, there is umbrella insurance.
Adding to Your Existing Coverage
If you were to add extra liability coverage onto your home and auto policies, it could be prohibitively expensive. It is much less expensive to get an umbrella policy, and it adds extra liability to both of those policies at the same time. When there is an accident that occurs with your vehicle or in your home, your home or auto policy will come in to pay what it can. It will only pay up to its maximum payout, and that might not be much. When there are more bills left after that, your umbrella policy will then come in to pay the rest of it.
