Combining insurance policies for newly married couples

Wedding season! Such a wonderful time of year – love is in the air, the weather is great, everyone has feelings of happiness. While a marriage is a declaration of a couple’s love for one another, it is also a legally binding institution that requires many considerations, including insurance. If you’re a newlywed or soon to be one, here are some things you need to know about your insurance and your new marital status.

  • If you and your partner both have a vehicle or both have a property, there are extra savings available for combining multiple vehicles or properties
  • If this is your first time living together, ensure all drivers in your home are listed on your auto policy
  • If the occupancy of one property changes due to moving, you need to notify your Steers rep as soon as possible
  • If you and your partner exchanged jewelry as part of your wedding day, make sure you add these to your home insurance policy to ensure you’re protected if they are lost or stolen

If you’re a newlywed, get in touch with your local Steers rep today for updates or changes specific to your policies, and congratulations!
