Am I wasting my money by paying for loan/lease coverage with Progressive and gap insurance with the bank?
I just bought a new car and I didn't realize that gap insurance was a part of my loan. I am paying for loan/lease coverage with Progressive, too. Should I get rid of one of them?
“That is a great question! You will really need to look at the differences between the two.
Gap coverage pays the difference between the actual cash value of your car and the balance of your loan in the event of a total loss.
Progressive’s loan/lease coverage does the same thing, but only up to 25% of your car’s depreciated value. Depending on the deprecation of your particular car and the type of loan you have, there may be a small amount left uncovered. “

Can apartment management buy renters insurance for tenants?
"My apartment management plans to increase my rent to cover the cost of renters insurance, which they'll buy for me from a carrier of their choice. But I'd prefer to pick my own insurance company. Can management legally buy renters insurance for me? Can I fight them on this to get a policy on my own? "
