All You Ever Wanted to Know About Insurance

Popular Insurance Myths Debunked

Orlando, Fla.—When we talk about insurance, some people feel a little hesitant to make decisions because of lack of knowledge and sometimes even prejudice. That is very unfortunately because in most cases that becomes a barrier between facing risks unprotected, or taking full advantage of the benefits that come with different types of insurance policies depending on the type of event or situation. Especially for us in Florida, where insurance has become by all means a part of our way of life.

Our main goal should always be to protect our personal or business assets in a way that our financial situation doesn’t get substantially affected at a time of potential loss.

Three important myths we want to particularly address today are:

  1. High cost— “Insurance is costly,” that’s usually the first thought of many people, however, it is completely false. There are different types of insurance coverages for all kinds of needs and budget. You must make an analysis between your insurance premium cost, the extent of coverage you receive, and whether or not it fits your current needs. That way you’ll know if you are paying a fair price.
  2. Unnecessary expense—Insurance is an essential financial tool for risk management, and a long term investment. An insurance policy not only provides economic resources during difficult times, but it also adds peace of mind and protection through time.
  3. Unwanted policy additions—A popular myth is that insurance agents will always offer you additional products you may have not considered. The truth is, a good insurance agents, in fact, the best ones, have the responsibility to evaluate your case. That includes assessing risks that may affect you, your business, or your property, and make sure you don’t end up exposed. At the end of the process, it is always your decision to make depending on your priorities and budget at the time of purchase.

Don’t let any of these myths shy you away from being adequately protected, and take some time to compare rates and policies from one insurer to another in order to obtain the best possible price for the coverage you want.
