Insuring a young driver

Having a young driver under age 25 in the household can bring new insurance needs. Here are a few things to consider:

Higher liability limits

When you select your liability coverage, you choose a limit of liability, which is the maximum amount your policy will pay for injuries to other people or damage to others' property if there is a covered accident and you are found responsible. Higher limits equals more coverage.

Umbrella policy

Auto, homeowners and other property insurance liability limits may not be enough to cover a large court judgment if you, or your young driver are found responsible for a covered incident.
