Let’s say you’ve got your retirement strategy down. You have an idea of how much you’re saving, the ideal age you’re retiring, everything is planned out. Suddenly, you are involved in a fender-bender and suddenly you’re looking at a lawsuit. Are your assets protected, or is there a gap in your insurance coverage?
Accidents can start as small as swerving to avoid a squirrel crossing the road and quickly build to a lot of damage if other cars or pedestrians are involved. In these cases, insurance companies and attorneys could target you, as doctors typically have a variety of assets, whether it’s a savings account, equity in your home or future earning ability.
Regardless of whether you’re covered or not, don’t fall victim to a common mistake: letting your coverage lapse or not updating your plan. As you go through changes in income growth as you progress in your career, make sure you make it a priority to re-evaluate your coverage as you go.
Another good idea is to talk to an agent to discuss total coverage, rather than shopping for coverage at a policy level. Consolidating your coverage with one company can help keep your support consistent and could even save you money.
If you’re worried about your coverage, or need a place to start, consider having a chat with your insurance agent. Talking through your lifestyle and assets can help your agent find the right coverage for you to keep you protected from a broader range of threats. You can also talk to your agent to easily change or update your policies, should your needs change.
