Pennsylvania Renters Insurance
Why do I need renters insurance?
Renters insurance is not required by law in Pennsylvania, but your landlord's insurance will only cover general building damage - not your stuff. And whether you're renting an apartment in University City or a family home in Bucks County, NJM knows you've got some stuff. Finding the money to replace that brand new Eagles Super Bowl jersey or your Macbook from college after a catastrophic event can be tough. That's where NJM comes in, with a competitively priced renters insurance policy that caters to your needs.
How much is renters insurance in Pennsylvania?
From West Chester to Conshohocken and beyond, the Keystone State is home to thousands of renters. The average cost for a renters policy in Pennsylvania is $146. That's an average of $12 a month and can be the difference between having to empty your savings to purchase a new computer if there's a leak in your apartment, or keeping that money for the trip to LA you've been saving for. Plus, if you're already an NJM policyholder, you can bundle your auto policy with a renters policy to qualify for discounts. NJM will also give you a discount if you have a smoke detector or sprinkler system installed in your rental, to reward you for taking steps to make your home safer.
What does renters insurance cover?
Policies in Pennsylvania typically include coverage for personal property, loss of use of your apartment due to damage, personal liability, and medical payments to others. This means that you're covered whether the ceiling caves in, a thief breaks in, or your washing machine decides to wash your entire apartment. Your NJM policy will also cover additional living expenses if you have to relocate temporarily, as well as payments to cover medical costs for a friend who is injured while visiting your apartment. The Pennsylvania Insurance Department provides additional information on choosing the right renters insurance policy based on your needs. Looking for even more coverage? Things that may be expensive to replace, such as jewelry or computer equipment, as well as costs related to credit card fraud and identity theft, can be covered through endorsements.
