Welcome to Week 3 of my Creating an Emergency Binder series. Today, we will be placing all of our insurance documents in our binder. If you missed any of the previous posts, check out the links below:
This section is pretty short and sweet, but VERY important. If you lose everything in your house, you need to know what is covered and what is not. Here is a list of everything that I placed in this section.
- Homeowner’s policy
- Medical insurance policies & cards
- Auto insurance policies
- Life insurance information
- Air Evac information
- Pest control/Home Maintenance Contracts
The medical insurance policies and cards included our basic medical insurance information and cancer policy through Alfac. Aflac does an awesome job at making sure you have all of the information you need for your coverage.
Our life insurance policy is also through Aflac. They provide you with a nice booklet for each. It was nice just having to punch holes and insert them into my binder.
I did have to make some phone calls about a few policies. I did not have my Air Evac information anywhere. So, I gave them a call and they provided me with my household number, which they said is all I need. I printed out their contact sheet from their Website and wrote my household number on the form, then placed it in my binder.
Note: Make sure that everyone is covered under your insurance policies. When calling Air Evac, I had to place my son on our policy. So, I went over a year without him being covered, which was not good.
Get ready for next week… The Household Inventory section.
