I recently got an email from a reader encouraging me to check out The Simple Dollar blog.
I did and was pleasantly surprised! It is an amazing resource with LOTS of information about personal finance, and in particular, INSURANCE.
I know, I know. If you’re like most people, the word “insurance” probably makes you throw up in your mouth a little.
I fall into the same category.
Every time there is a conversation about it, I’m either feeling like a bad person because I don’t have enough, or once again reminded of how badly I’m getting raped (sans dinner and a movie).
But like it or not, in the legal day and age we live in, having insurance still really is a smart thing to do.
The Simple Dollar is a great resource to help you navigate the insurance waters. It’s full of posts organized into 4 categories:
If you want to go above and beyond, you can pretty much find somebody that will insure anything in this world (yes even your prized rear end J-Lo!), but I think these 4 areas represent the baseline coverages that most people want in life.
What Will You Find in These 4 Sections?
For each of these 4 sections, you will find a free comprehensive guide (download or read online), CHUCK FULL of really good insurance wisdom. Things like:
- High deductible vs. High Premium
- Laws and coverage limits by state
- The questions you need to ask before purchasing policies
- What to do when you’ve had a car accident
- and a ton more!
In addition to their exhaustive guides, each of these 4 sections also has several supporting articles that go into more detail on a specific topic.
The site is well laid out, easy to navigate, and full of charts and visuals that makes the information really easy to sort through quickly.
In short, I have been really enjoying it so I thought I’d pass it along. Big thanks to the crew at The Simple Dollar for putting together such a great site!
