State Insurance Commissioners Recommend Renters Insurance for College Students

Whether you are entering into your next year of college or graduated recently, chances are you are living in a rented apartment or dorm or will at some point. Have you ever considered how much the stuff in your apartment is worth? All of your dorm essentials, your laptop, mini fridge, clothes, and more, reside there. If you were to lose them all, could you afford to replace them?

That’s what renters insurance is for – it can help cover property losses and damage, as well as liability risks. Your personal property, such as your TV, cell phone, or school supplies, is covered should it be stolen, damaged, vandalized, or destroyed in a fire or other natural occurrence.

The insurance is useful for both college students and new graduates. Both dorm and apartment life come with dangers and risks, and the cost to replace all of your important possessions single-handedly can often be too high.
