A message from Liberty Mutual Insurance

What is an Umbrella Policy?

By Dennis Goebel, vice president, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company

Personal Liability Protection offers additional protection to home and auto insurance.
You may have heard of personal liability protection or “umbrella” insurance. But do you know what it covers and if you really need it?  Liberty Mutual’s standard home and auto policies cover your personal liability when an accident occurs in your home or on the road. Personal Liability Protection (PLP) provides a second line of defense:

  • Coverage starting at $1 million for an affordable price (higher limits also available)
  • Additional protection, should a jury award for covered damages exceed the limits of your underlying policy
  • Defense against covered claims and lawsuits, even if they’re groundless or fraudulent, anywhere in the world
  • Coverage for accidents caused by any recreational vehicle you operate
  • Peace-of-mind that you and your family are covered in the event of unexpected and unusual occurrences, such as a costly legal judgment

To determine if “umbrella” protection is right for you, consult with your Liberty Mutual Insurance agent and consider the following questions:

  • Are the limits on your home and auto liability sufficient to cover you and your family?
  • Do you have a swimming pool or a dog?
  • What is your tolerance to risk?
  • Do you have retirement assets to protect?

Click here to learn more about Liberty Mutual’s Personal Liability Protection coverage.
