Renters InsuranceA world of protection, for less than a dollar a day

For the more than 44 million renters in America today, renters insurance has a tendency of getting overlooked. According to statistics, only two in five renters actually carry it.

That’s too bad because as many apartment dwellers and tenants can tell you, unpredictable stuff happens all the time. From a broken water pipe to a liability lawsuit, renters insurance can be the only thing protecting you against potentially devastating financial consequences.

Do I need renters insurance?

When you’re a renter, it’s easy to think all your property is covered under the building owner’s policy. But that’s likely not true. Your landlord’s policy probably only covers the physical apartment unit and building. It’s up to you to protect your personal belongings. The best way to do that is with renters insurance. And with POM, you can have peace of mind protection for less than a dollar a day.

Say, for example, your apartment is deemed unlivable due to a disaster such as a fire or major water damage and you need to stay at a hotel, renters insurance can cover your living expenses.

What does renter insurance cover?

A renters insurance policy from POM can cover your valuables in your rented house, condo or apartment. And that’s just the beginning. It also covers:

Your personal property anywhere in the world

If you’re on vacation and your laptop gets stolen, your renters insurance will cover the loss.

Legal liability for injury or property damage to others

If someone gets injured or their property is damaged and it’s your fault, your renters insurance may be able to help cover the damage—whether the event happens in your apartment or not.

Improvements to your rental property.

Sometimes, landlords can hold you financially responsible for improvements to your unit. Renters insurance may also be able to help with that.

Additional living expenses.

If your unit becomes temporarily unlivable due to a covered loss, renters insurance can help pay the costs for you to stay elsewhere.
