New Jersey Umbrella Insurance
Coverage for the Unexpected
An umbrella policy provides additional liability insurance, which gives you added protection for covered claims in which the damages or injury exceeds the limits of your auto or home insurance policy.
Added Protection for Your Auto Policy
Your liability for a serious car accident could exceed the liability limits of your car insurance policy. In the event of a lawsuit resulting from a covered car accident, your umbrella policy limit will provide another level of protection above the liability limit of your auto policy.
Safeguarding Your Home from Liability
Unfortunately, accidents happen in the home, sometimes resulting in serious injuries to visitors. Such accidents could lead to a significant claim against the homeowner. If someone makes a claim against you that is covered by the policy, umbrella coverage can give you additional protection beyond your homeowners policy's liability limit.
See If You're Eligible
Umbrella policies are available to current NJM Auto policyholders and NJM Auto policy applicants, once their auto policy is purchased. Your auto and homeowners policies each need to have a minimum liability limit of $500,000, and members of homeowners or condominium associations need to have a minimum of $50,000 in loss assessment protection.
How Much Does It Cost?
Umbrella policies are more affordable than you might think. In most cases, a New Jersey umbrella policy with a $1 million liability limit for a customer with two cars and one home would cost between $203–$274 per year. So, for less than $1 a day† you can have the added peace of mind of $1 million in liability protection — good anywhere in the world.
The price of the policy will vary based on your specific liability exposures, property location, and the coverage limits chosen, and coverage is subject to underwriting approval. Higher limits are available, subject to underwriting review.
Customize Your Policy with an Endorsement
Excess Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists Coverage
Normally, an umbrella policy excludes Uninsured/Underinsured (UM/UIM) coverage. This endorsement provides an additional $1,000,000 in UM/UIM coverage if you are involved in a covered accident with a driver who is uninsured or underinsured, and the bodily injuries and/or property damage exceeds your underlying auto policy's UM/UIM limits. $500,000 UM/UIM limits must be maintained on your auto policy.
