Does home insurance cover volcano damage?
My daughter is considering moving to an area with volcanic activity. Will she be protected from volcano damage?
In order for volcano damage to be covered by homeowners insurance, eruptions would have to be listed as a named peril on the policy. Alternatively, there would have to be an open peril policy without any exclusion for volcano eruptions.
Generally speaking, homeowners insurance rarely addresses volcanic eruptions overtly.
While eruptions may not be included in a policy, some related events like fire and fallen objects may be explicitly covered. This may provide some indirect protection from volcanoes.

Can my grandma cosign my car loan?
Can a grandparent be a cosigner on a car loan? I've been working and saving money for a while, and I'm finally in the position to buy a car. I don’t have credit yet, and my parents aren't comfortable cosigning a loan for me because they have low incomes wouldn't be able to take on the loan if I was unable to pay. My grandma is fairly well-off, though, and would be able to cosign no problem.
