Galt FAQ

What is the best insurance to cover my family from substantial expenses in an auto accident?

The best way to ensure that you and your family are protected in an auto accident is to purchase a substantial limit of Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist policy. A single night at UCD can result in charges over $30,000.

Many drivers on California roads have minimal or no auto coverage. We suggest that anyone with a household income of $40,000 or more should purchase a $250,000/$500,000 UM policy. Such coverage is actually quite reasonable as the most expensive part of an auto insurance premium is usually the collision coverage on the car.

For families with a household income of $75,000 or more, we suggest that they buy the coverage above and add a one Million Dollar Personal Umbrella that also covers you or your family members if the $250,000 UM coverage above is inadequate. Please do NOT confuse a “personal umbrella with UM with a regular Umbrella Policy. A standard Umbrella does not cover UM.

If you have any questions about where to best buy a personal umbrella, please call me at 916.921.6400. We"ll be glad to connect you to an experienced personal umbrella agent.
