Can I submit receipts to my insurer for home repairs that I do myself?
I'm thinking of doing some home repairs myself to save money. Will my insurance company accept the receipts for these repairs?

In most cases, insurance companies will allow you to do complete repairs to your home after suffering a covered loss. You may be required to follow specific guidelines to make sure the work is completed to a satisfactory level. Once the repairs are complete, you can submit the receipt to the insurance company for review and they can reimburse you for the cost of materials.

Why did my car insurance skyrocket after trading in my car?
I was leasing a 2019 Audi A3 and recently traded it in for the 2021 model. My premium has gone up $400. The dealership said it was because I didn't have full coverage on my previous vehicle, but I'm almost positive I did. I also recently moved from a suburban area to a city. Why did my rate change?
