If you’re not an essential employee, you may have time on your hands. Here are a few things you can do to make sure you’re protecting your stuff now and when lockdown is over.
1. You’ve got apartment insurance — now’s the time to do a digital inventory of your stuff. This will serve as proof in case you need to make a claim.
2. Now that you have an inventory, check to see if your apartment insurance covers the stuff you’ve accumulated over time. Many of us find that it doesn’t. If that’s you, it’s time to update it.
3. If you don’t have apartment insurance — now’s the time to get it. If you have an accident, it can be more costly now than usual thanks to longer response times for leaks and damage, since “first responders” are busy dealing with COVID, not your home emergency.
