Are you handling the administration of an estate? Be sure to check in with the decedent’s insurance agent.
There can be gaps in insurance coverage from the time a person dies until the executor opens his or her estate. After someone has died it’s important to reach out to the home and auto insurance agent as soon as possible. The agent can make sure that the policies are all paid up and that the proper coverage is in place. When a home is vacant, nobody is there to make sure that it is safe from damage and intruders. The sooner the insurance agent knows what is going on, the more peace of mind the executor will have.
