As the global climate changes, have you wondered what you would do if your home was destroyed by fire, flood, tornado, earth quake or any other natural event?
Like most of us, you may think the probability of something happening to you is slim to none – it only happens to other people. Right?
But what about all the inclement weather and fires we’ve had over the recent years, and all the tornados and hurricanes we endure every year? Surely, the people who lost everything to those events didn’t think they were in harm’s way.
What about home invasions? Statistics show that a burglary occurs every 13 seconds, roughly 325,000 every year, resulting in losses exceeding $14.3 billion.
The police will tell you that if your property is recovered and you can’t prove ownership, there’s a good chance you won’t get it back.
When under duress of a tragic event, you’ll be hard pressed to recollect everything that you’ve lost. And, although your homeowners’ insurance may cover some of your losses, you may be surprised to find out that there are loopholes to prevent financial recovery.
Not only can you lose personal property, you could lose birth certificates, passports, financial records, vehicle registrations, to mention a few. How would that impact your life?
