Whatever you purchase this Valentine’s Day, make sure you take the appropriate steps to insure your valuables.

Homeowners and renters insurance policies provide coverage for personal property; however, there may be limits. In addition, homeowner’s policies cover named perils that may include fire, lightning, wind, and theft. But what if that expensive ring falls down the bathroom drain? Do you have coverage?

If your home was destroyed by fire, would you remember every possession and the value of each one? Keeping an inventory of what's in your home, as well as appraisals for expensive items like jewelry and other valuables, can be very beneficial during the claims process.

If you plan on going out for a nice Valentine’s Day dinner and your credit card is compromised, do you have protection against identity theft?
