Does renters insurance cover lost food?
My apartment lost power for several days and I lost most of my frozen and refrigerated food. Does my renters insurance cover the cost of this food?
“Yes, it actually does cover food as your personal property. If your apartment loses power and the food gets spoiled in the refrigerator, your renters insurance should cover food replacement subject to your deductible.
Be aware that the policy will only cover the food if the power outage was an unforeseen incident, not if you failed to pay your bill and the power was shut off for that reason. “

"Why am I not able to refinance my car at a lower rate after improving my credit score? "
"I got a car loan a year ago at seven percent with a 700 credit score. Now my score has gone up. I applied for a refinance loan and was approved for the same exact interest rate as before. While it doesn’t make financial sense to make a lateral move like that, I would like to understand the lender's logic here. "

What auto insurance limits should I carry to protect my retirement funds?
I am in my early 30s and have about $200,000 invested in my 401(k). Right now, I only carry state minimums for my auto insurance, but I know I need to increase my limits. How do I know if I have enough coverage?
