Shopping, baking, traveling and time with family are high on the to-do list this holiday season. Reviewing our insurance policies probably didn't make the high cut, but maybe it should. Consider the following to ensure you're covered in the case of a holiday calamity. 

1. Did you purchase any electronics for gifts? 

Televisions, smartphones, tablets, laptops, gaming systems and cameras are fun to give (and receive)....

Can you smell it? The teasing, wafting savory scent of roasting turkey, the sweet yeast rolls pulled from the oven or the oh-so-spicy pumpkin pie cooling to follow a delightful holiday meal.

Or maybe it is the salty-ocean air or earthy mountain pines you breathe in. Whether you are traveling to visit family or just getting away during the holidays, do you know if you are covered if something were to go wrong?

"This is ridiculous! I have to pay this premium and I never file a claim on my insurance. I don't understand why I need this."

Sound familiar? It may just be the script that plays in our heads every time we receive our premium due notice.

A few years back, I had a cow die for an unknown reason so I called my insurance agent. I discovered that while the cow was covered under my farm blanket insurance policy, she wasn't covered for anything other than lightning, accidental shooting or suffocation. Talk about a learning experience!
