Everyone needs some sort of insurance policy in their life, either for personal or commercial reasons, but the monthly payments represent a significant overhead. Instead of sticking to paying too much for your insurance, there are a few ways you can talk to us to see if you can bring down your insurance payments.
One way that a monthly premium is determined is through your credit score. While this isn’t a huge factor when setting up insurance, if you have a significantly improved credit score compared to when you first created your policy, it’s worth getting in touch and seeing whether it makes a difference with your policy.
Changing the maximum coverage level for the contents of your house or apartment with homeowners and renters insurance helps to adjust the premium as well. If you increase your coverage level, your monthly premium is adjusted accordingly. You may want to look into specialty insurance if you are increasing your coverage level due to assets such as a boat, which can have its own separate insurance policy.
If you change the deductible, you are altering the amount of financial liability you have before the insurance company covers the bill. A lower deductible is great if you want to avoid paying large lump sums when accidents happen, but it’s not as good if you aren’t able to afford the higher monthly premium. Raising your deductible generally brings down your monthly premium.
