52 WEEKS TO FINANCIAL ORGANIZATION: #18 Review Insurance Coverage

I've written a lot about organizing your insurance policies. Hopefully you have:
1.     Located the policies
2.     Created a spreadsheet, listing what you have and whom to contact
3.     Filed the policies in a safe place
These are all vitally important things you need to do to organize these important financial documents.  But all the organization in the world won't help you if your insurance coverage isn't up-to-date.
Consider these scenarios:
        You got married
        You got divorced
        You became widowed
        You had a child
        Your teenager started driving
        You got a new job, and your commuting distance changed
        You got a new job that pays you lots more money
        You retired
        Your teenager suddenly became a great student
        Your teenager dropped out of college
        Your kids moved out
        You acquired many new valuable possessions
        You built an addition onto your house
        You started your own business
This is a partial list of commonplace happenings.  But they affect every type of insurance coverage you might have:  medical insurance, automobile insurance, life insurance, liability insurance, homeowner's/renter's insurance, and disability insurance.
Have you experienced any of these events since the last time you reviewed your insurance coverage?  If so, then you definitely need to pick up the phone this week and make appointments with your insurance agents to update your policies.
P.S.  When you receive your updated policies, be sure to record them on your insurance spreadsheet and file them safely.
