Declarations Page
This page is basically a snapshot of the important information regarding your insurance policy. It will have policyholder information, such as name, address, and policy number, as well as coverages, limits, premiums, deductibles, and dates of coverage.
Liability Coverage
Our job is to advise and pair our clients up with the best financial advisors to ensure that any property gets the correct evaluation in case of asset division during divorce or separation.
An insurance endorsement, also called a rider, is a change to your insurance policy that adjusts your coverage. Adding an endorsement to your existing insurance contract usually means adding or modifying coverage.
