Apartments with a poolGraduation is here! That means it’s time for students to move – and lots of new renters will be entering the market.

But while their graduation shows they’ve learned a lot, a recent survey proves most people know very little about Renters insurance.

For example, six of 10 U.S. adults who rent a house or apartment don’t have renter’s insurance, and of those uninsured:

  • 57% think they don’t need it because their apartment has decent security,
  • 48% believe their landlord’s insurance will cover their belongings, and
  • 21% assumed it would cost $1,000 or more each year.

Agents can make the difference here. Educate your clients on the availability, need and affordability of Renters insurance. With policies averaging under $200 per year and coverage options like:

  • Replacement Cost on Contents,
  • Contents Coverage Limits up to $50,000,
  • Liability Coverage Limits up to $300,000,
  • Medical Payments Limits up to $2,000, and
  • Theft Coverage

There really is no reason for your clients to be caught unprotected.


(The telephone survey of 1,004 adults was conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates International from Feb. 7-10, 2013.)
