Will renters insurance cover your rent if you lose your job?
I've been hearing rumors at work that layoffs are coming. If I'm laid off, will my insurance cover my rent?

Unfortunately, no, renters insurance does not cover your rent in the event that you lose your job. What it does cover is your personal property, medical and legal bills if you’re liable for damage or injury to others, and temporary living expenses if your home is uninhabitable for a time.

How much car insurance coverage do I need on a 2017 Nissan Rogue?
Currently, I'm looking at a 500/750/500 liability policy, collision and comprehensive with a $500 deductible, and a 300/300 uninsured motorist policy. I also want to be as frugal as possible. Is this enough coverage or is it too much?
