I'm about to move into an apartment that will be shared with a roommate. Can we split renters insurance?

Roommates can split renters insurance as long as both people are listed on the policy as a named insured. If there are residents living in the home but not listed on the policy, they may not be covered under the renters insurance if there is ever a loss or a claim made.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
