(Sample 2 – Short version)
Underinsurance is essentially not having enough insurance to cover a property claim in the event of property theft, loss or damage. For example, if the value of your property is $200,000 and your policy covers $140,000, you will be liable for the remaining $60,000 out of pocket.
It is extremely important that you properly declare the full value of the property you are insuring. Saving a small amount of money on your insurance premium now can cost you more than you can cover down the road.
