Renters Insurance

The Cost of Your Stuff Adds Up. Protect It With Renters Insurance.

No matter if you’re running errands, traveling for work or simply relaxing at home, you can have peace of mind knowing that, should the unexpected happen, your stuff is covered.

Do You Have Enough to Cover Your Stuff From the Unexpected?

Consider the value of everything you own — it’s more than you think! If your place caught fire and your things were damaged or destroyed, could you afford to replace it all on your own? You’re probably saving up for important things, like your first home or maybe even a family, so paying out of pocket for damages is likely something you want to avoid. Having renters insurance is a smart, supportive and affordable option to protect you from the unexpected.

Cost of a Take-out Meal

Protection is extremely affordable. In fact, average renters insurance policies are often less than $15 a month.

Protection That Follows You

Whether you’re working at a coffee shop or flying to the other side of the country, your renters insurance acts as an invisible shield around you and your possessions.

Renters Insurance FAQs

  1. Just look at your neighbor — no two renters are alike! That’s why we offer a variety of unique ways to protect you. From personal property protection to liability coverage, we work with you to build a policy that’s customized for you and your growing dreams. Here are just a few examples of the protection we offer — but your American Family agent can help you explore all your options!

    • Your renters policy helps cover damage to your things from fire, theft, water damage and other covered losses. And, if your apartment becomes uninhabitable, we’ll help cover temporary housing expenses while it’s being prepared.
    • Liability coverage will help you pay for property damage, first aid, medical and court costs should an accident happen in your rental, so you can stay focused on growing your dreams.
  2. Great question! Your landlord’s insurance only covers the building you live in, not what’s inside your apartment. That’s why renters insurance is so important — it helps replace your belongings if anything unexpected happens — like fire, theft, water damage and more. Your renters policy also provides you with liability coverage if you accidentally cause damage to the building or injury to a guest or another tenant.
  3. It’s important to have enough protection to cover the costs of replacing your belongings in the event of the unexpected. From laptops and TVs to sports equipment and your favorite clothing, the value of your personal property can add up quickly! To get an idea of everything you own, create a room-by-room inventory so you know what everything you own is worth.
  4. Making a claim is never fun, but we do our best to make it as easy and stress-free as possible for you. If you experience a loss, simply call 1-800-MYAMFAM (692-6326) and we’ll work with you to restore or replace your damaged or lost belongings. Take a closer look at our claims process here.
