Millions of people are still reeling from the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy.
The rest of the country is watching with sympathy and helping with relief efforts. All of us, those directly impacted by Sandy, and those who were not, can learn from this storm and make sure that we are properly protected financially from natural disaster.
People often buy a house and take out a homeowner’s policy at the same time. Then, they dutifully pay their premium every year.
What they often don’t do is revisit their insurance policy to make sure that they have enough coverage as years go by. Most people just don’t think much about their insurance–until they need it.
