Week 3 September 16-22: Check Your Coverage
Gather financial and critical personal, household and medical information. While there are resources to replace lost or damaged documents, it makes the recovery process smoother when you have everything already. You can store them in a sealable plastic bag, a dry storage bag, a safety deposit box, an external drive or on the cloud to make them easily accessible.
Take pictures of the rooms of your house. They can be used as documentation of personal property with your insurance company.
Obtain property, homeowners or renters, health and life insurance if you don’t have them already. If you do have them, review the policies to make sure that it is what you need.
You may also need to purchase flood insurance, if your homeowners insurance does not cover flooding. More information on flood insurance can be found at floodsmart.gov.
