“Each insurance company has different rules and regulations when it comes to the number of people permitted to be listed on a renters insurance policy. In most cases, companies will only allow yourself and any immediate family members to be listed on the policy. If your roommates are not part of your immediate family, you each may be forced to obtain a separate policy for yourselves. “

Why is my insurance payout from Progressive lower than the value of my new Chevy Trax?
I purchased a new Chevy Trax for $27,000, including the dealership's warranty. I was in an accident and the Trax was deemed a total loss. Progressive's assessment of my vehicle is $20,250, and I still owe $26,000. Why is the assessment so much lower than what I paid?

If you don't tell your home insurance company that you're running a business from your house and they find out, what will happen? Will there be any penalties?
I've been running my business from home for the last few weeks. It looks like this is going to be a permanent arrangement. I forgot to notify my home insurance company about this, and now I'm worried that I'll be penalized in some way.
