In our latest roundup of personal insurance news, notes, and tips, we begin with a reminder that seeing someone's proof of insurance is one thing -- but hearing an agent verify that coverage is believing.

Hiring contractors? Verify their insurance with an agent, then trust.

Spring is ideal for home improvements, some of which might require a contractor's expertise. But before anyone starts work on your home, make sure they have insurance. Ask your contractor to furnish proof of insurance, with their agents contact information to verify the insurance is active. A reputable contractor will welcome your due diligence, and you will have peace of mind. Have any questions on this topic? Call us at 847.307.6100, and any of our Plexus Private Client Solutions team members will be happy to help.

Florida: the king of uninsured motorists

Ah, Florida. Sunshine. Beaches. And, unfortunately, a higher percentage of uninsured drivers than the rest of the country, according to the most recent available data from the Insurance Research Council (via the Insurance Information Institute). Therefore, there is no guarantee insured Florida drivers are carrying all that much coverage. According to the Insurance Information Institute, Florida drivers are only required to carry $10,000 in liability coverage per person, with a minimum $20,000 per accident in liability insurance. Furthermore, drivers need just $10,000 in property coverage, per state law.
