OKLAHOMA – Each year on June 28th, National Insurance Awareness Day encourages individuals, families and businesses to review their insurance policies and assess any outstanding needs. From home and auto insurance to life and health insurance, having the proper policies in place offer a sense of security and peace of mind in many aspects of people’s daily lives. It is important for policyholders to review insurance policies periodically to ensure coverage needs have not changed.
“The importance of having adequate insurance coverage is something people often forget until they need to file a claim,” said Gary Buckner, executive vice president and general manager of OKFB Insurance. “We take part in National Insurance Awareness Day to remind people that life doesn’t always go as planned, but periodic policy reviews can help ensure your most important assets are protected.”
OKFB Insurance is sharing tips on how to make the most out of this year’s National Insurance Awareness Day.
Talk to your agent. Chat with your insurance agent about reviewing current policies to ensure your needs remain aligned with your insurance plan and coverage limits. This is also a good time to ask about current promotions, services or changes in your premiums.
Consider life changes. Consider any recent changes in your life. Have you moved into a new house? Have you purchased a new car? Major life events can impact the type of insurance you need and simple changes can make a big difference. For example, if your job has shifted to a remote business model and you drive less frequently as a result, your insurance company might re-evaluate your rates.
Fill in the gaps. Setting aside time to review your insurance policies not only provides peace of mind, but it can also lead to opportunities for potential cost savings. It’s important to look carefully at your current policies to eliminate gaps in coverage or remove redundant coverage.
Also, there are issues surrounding the pandemic that may have led to the adjustment or change in the costs of goods and services across Oklahoma. This summer, consider taking some time with your agent to review your insurance policies to discuss if your coverage may be impacted.
