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:

  1. Health Insurance
  2. Life Insurance
  3. Car Insurance
  4. Home Insurance

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!

Prep On,
