Separate flood insurance can be purchased to cover damage caused by natural floods.

This coverage should never be viewed as a substitute for a separate flood insurance policy, as it would not provide adequate protection if a flood destroyed your home. Ask your AAA Insurance representative if this coverage is available in your state.
Most standard homeowners insurance plans provide coverage for lost food, up to a limit specified in the policy.
One of the most accurate ways to determine the value of your household goods and personal belongings is to create an inventory list and estimate what the items on it are worth. Your AAA Insurance representative can provide you with a Personal Property Inventory form to help guide you through the process. It's also a good idea to photograph or videotape each room, then keep a copy of the photos or videotape with the inventory list in a safe deposit box or other secure place outside your home. If you ever need to submit a claim, you won't have to rely on your memory to list what you had and how much it was worth.
Your jewelry is covered up to a specified limit as stated in your policy. If you own high-valued jewelry, you should consider purchasing separate coverage for these items. Your AAA Insurance representative may refer to this as "scheduling your valuables." A jewelry appraisal is typically required to purchase this enhanced coverage.
Most standard insurance policies assign special limits to certain personal property items. Valuables which often have special limits include cash and coins, jewelry, furs and silverware. At AAA, your valuables are subject to a specified limit as defined by your policy.

It's also a good idea to make an inventory of the contents of your home, and to have your valuables professionally appraised.

Level vs. Yearly Renewable Term
If you decide to go with Term life insurance, you will need to choose between Level Term and Yearly Renewable Term. The advantage of level term life insurance is that the premiums remain level over a guaranteed number of years. Yearly renewable term life insurance has a lower first year premium but the premium increases each year. Yearly renewable term life insurance is only cost-effective in the first few years, after which it becomes more expensive because the premiums increase each year. You should select a guaranteed term period to match the duration of your term life insurance need. If your needs vary in duration, one cost-effective solution is to purchase multiple policies each with a different term period.

Your personal umbrella policy is designed to provide protection for you and for any relatives living with you. Therefore, their policies must meet the umbrella policy's requirements for minimum underlying limits for auto liability insurance. If you are comfortable with the risk, one option for you is to exclude your family member and their vehicle(s) from coverage under your personal umbrella policy. This can be accomplished by signing an exclusion form.
Whether or not an umbrella policy provides liability protection for your small business depends on a number of factors, including whether this business exposure is covered by your underlying AAA Home Insurance policy. Business pursuits normally are not covered; however, some activities incidental to your business may be covered by special endorsement to your homeowners policy.
Personal umbrella insurance is low-cost liability coverage that provides an extra measure of security beyond the limits of liability insurance on your AAA Auto and Home Insurance policies. Because an umbrella policy provides liability coverage only, it is designed to provide protection for you and those living with you but does not cover damage to your property. It will not, for instance, extend coverage on policies such as an earthquake policy.
Personal umbrella coverage is often referred to as "secondary coverage." That's because it is, with a few exceptions, excess coverage over underlying insurance. This means that the limits of the underlying insurance (your auto and homeowner's policies) will be exhausted before the umbrella coverage is needed. The underlying insurance pays first (primary insurance"), while the umbrella policy pays second ("secondary insurance").
