As an out-of-state college student, where do I get car insurance?
I have Nevada car insurance, but I’m moving to California for college. I’ll return to Nevada when school's out. Where am I supposed to get insurance?

You are able to keep the insurance in Nevada because your primary residence is still going to be located in that state. You just want to make sure you carry the correct limits on your policy.
California has a minimum limit for your bodily injury of 15/30 ($15,000 for injury or death to one person; $30,000 for injury or death to more than one person) and $5,000 for property damage. As long as your limits are above that amount, you are fine to keep your Nevada policy.

I don't know if my delivered watch was stolen or lost. What do I do?
"I bought a pre-owned luxury watch online and had it delivered by mail. I left the unopened package on a table by the front door and it vanished. It might have been stolen by a thief, or maybe someone in my family tossed the package without knowing there was something inside (though my family denied doing this). My home insurance covers theft, but what about loss? Can you tell me how to approach this situation, since I have no idea what happened to the watch? "
