Will you soon have teens who will attend college away from home? If so, then you are likely already in the midst of handling that seemingly never-ending list of things to do before they’re ready for campus life. One item that is often overlooked is how this change in your family’s life will affect your insurance coverage. Will they be taking a car to school?

Insurance Discount Tip
If your college student is young, unmarried, attending college full-time away from home with no use of a vehicle, then you might be eligible for a discount on your Auto Insurance policy. Why not discuss this with your insurance agent; and while you’re at it, ask about other multi-policy discounts that might also apply. Then you can cross this item off your college planner, assured that you have the right coverage in place before you send your teen off to school.
