How much liability auto insurance you’re required to buy depends on the state where you reside. How much you buy beyond the legal minimum depends on your finances and assets. If money is tight, you might need to settle for state minimum limits, but it can be risky. If you have sizeable assets, you may want to consider higher limits, like those found in a personal umbrella policy that offers an extra layer of protection.
Homeowners aren't the only ones who need insurance. No matter where you live, having insurance protection helps you keep your finances intact by avoiding losses from theft, fire or other events that damage or destroy your personal property. And if you cause an accident that damages the apartment or condo itself, insurance can provide you with important protection in those cases, too.
