YOUR WEALTH
Straight Talk from the Money Editor
If you are like most people, you buy insurance policies hoping never to need them. But if you ever did have to file a claim, would you really know what your policies cover and, more importantly, what they don’t? So be honest, have you even looked at your various insurance policies in the last year? Have you ever reviewed them? If you had a big loss, do you know what you will actually collect?

No one plans to curl up at night with a glass of wine to read their insurance policies. Of course, it makes for boring reading, but you need to be up to date because what you don’t know about your insurance policies can cost you.
