Some common mistakes people make when buying insurance

Rather than using a local insurance agent that has your best interests at heart, sometimes people take their insurance needs into their own hands. Read below for some common mistakes that can be made, and how having a Farmers Union insurance agent in your corner can help you avoid these!


  1. Choosing the wrong types of policies. There are many different policies, sometimes even for the same risks! Liability limits, med pay, PiP, and more its important to understand the differences or to have an agent explain the differences to you.
  2. Underestimating your insurance needs. There is quite possibly nothing worse than getting into an accident and finding out you don’t have the right insurance coverage. Your agent can explain exactly what you need because each situation is unique!
