Specialty insurance remains so special that few people know what it really does so Huntington, TX’s Integra Insurance Services created this blog to let you know how to use this little-known type of policy. Most individuals who do know think of it in terms of event insurance. This is the type of policy that people usually purchase to protect their conference, convention, or wedding.
You can also use this to protect jewelry, a common need when people get engaged since they want to protect the ring through the time of the wedding ceremony. It also protects family heirloom pieces though. A specialty property insurance policy has many uses and while this is not the most common, it does come in handy.
This type of policy can be a primary or a secondary. You can use the property insurance coverage in your home insurance as well as a specialty insurance policy to protect property such as family vases, furniture, jewelry, and other heirlooms. When you use it this way, it functions as a secondary policy.
When you purchase a specialty policy as coverage for an engagement ring, but you have no other insurance policy whatsoever, the policy functions as a primary policy.
Specialty policies protect both tangible and intangible property making them one of the most flexible types of insurance. You can purchase these policies to suit the items you need to insure. You might purchase a policy to cover your engagement ring for $5,000. Two years later, you might purchase a different specialty policy to insure the antiques left to you by a deceased relative in the amount of $500,000. These flexible policies can insure almost any amount as long as your insurance company will underwrite that amount.
