Who Needs Renters Insurance?

Walk through your apartment and start adding up the cost of everything inside of it. Your living room furniture, your television, your wardrobe… If your apartment were to experience damage such as a fire or burglary, could you afford to replace all these items?

Your landlord’s insurance policy won’t cover your stuff. That means you need coverage for your belongings and injuries suffered by guests in your unit. An NJM Renters Insurance policy insures your personal property and personal liability.

Average payout of a renters insurance claim: $7,702§
