Umbrella insurance is liability coverage called excess liability. It is not a policy that stands alone, it is a policy that is additional coverage for a policy with liability you already have. Some policies that have liability are home insurance, auto insurance, condo insurance, and even renters’ insurance. What happens is when you need to use your liability insurance the primary policy kicks in first and when the expenses rise above the limit of your policy, the umbrella policy will begin to cover. Umbrella policies usually start at around a million dollars and go up from there. 

The main reason just about anyone should have umbrella insurance is that in America about 10% of people get sued every year, and you have a better than 30% chance of being sued at least once in your lifetime. Legal fees have skyrocketed and judgments are getting bugger all the time. If you have an accident where you are at fault or someone gets injured while visiting your home or rental, you could find your assets in danger and even your future wages at risk. Umbrella insurance is affordable protection.
