Do I need business insurance for my equipment?
"I work from home and I have a laptop, some monitors, and a printer that I can't afford to lose. I thought my renters insurance would cover this equipment, but my friend says I need to get separate business insurance. Is my friend right?

“If your employer owns your work equipment, it’s their responsibility to repair or replace these items for you. If you are self-employed or if you purchased the work equipment yourself, you will want to make sure that you have the necessary extra protection since your coverage limit may be too low. With most renters insurance policies, you can add endorsements to expand coverage for work equipment.
If this is for a business that you own, you can also look into getting business insurance. At a minimum, you would want to consider getting property and liability coverages. “

I was recently involved in an at-fault accident while driving for Grubhub. I have liability insurance, but when I called my insurer, they said they wouldn't cover the accident because it happened while I was making a delivery. Do I have to pay for the damage to my car and the other person's bills?

"I need some cash to pay off my credit card debt, so I applied for a personal loan at my bank. They offered me a loan with a 12% interest rate, but their car loans have a 3% interest rate. Can I just apply for a car loan and use the cash to pay off my credit cards? "
