Can my landlord require me to list them as a beneficiary on my renters insurance?
I know that a landlord can demand that a tenant buy renters insurance, but can they also demand to be listed as a beneficiary on the policy?
A landlord should never ask to be placed as a beneficiary on a renters policy, but they may ask to be placed on the policy as an additional interest or interested party. This allows them to request information regarding your policy (such as proof that you are insured), and they will also be automatically notified of any changes made to the policy.

What should I do if I'm in an auto accident and I'm in the country on a visa?
"I am on a work visa and was in a bad car accident. I wasn't at fault and the other driver died in the accident. I only had $10,000 in medical payment coverage and the other driver's insurance had $20,000. My medical bills are well over $100,000. Can I file for bankruptcy if I'm not a US citizen? "
