Does home insurance cover your belongings inside your property?
I know insurance covers my home's physical structure, but what about the things inside?

Yes, you have coverage on your policy that is specifically for your belongings called “Coverage C”. This coverage type is also called “personal property coverage” and it covers things like furniture, electronics, and clothing. However, it does not cover everything and there are payout limits for certain belongings, including jewelry, watches, fur, artwork, and firearms, just to name a few. So you should check with your insurance agent to make sure you have all the coverage you need on your policy.

Why is my car insurance company refusing to pay for the labor on my car repairs?
Esurance told the shop repairing my vehicle that they won't pay for labor costs. I have full coverage and the repairs were initially estimated at $2,500. The final amount is less than this, so I'm not sure why I'm supposed to pay out of pocket for the labor charges. I already paid my deductible.
