As a renter, you need to protect the things you own. Sure, your landlord has insurance for the building you live in, but that protection won’t extend to you as a tenant. A renters insurance policy is the perfect solution in Pennsylvania.

Whether you’re renting an apartment in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia or somewhere in between, a renters policy will protect your belongings and also protect you financially if someone gets hurt at your place.

Standard Coverages in Pennsylvania

The three coverages detailed below are standard on nearly all renters insurance policies in Pennsylvania. If you want more protection, you can always add extra coverage.
Your Belongings
Renters insurance can help you repair or replace any damaged or stolen personal items, such as computers, bicycles, TVs and furniture. You’re covered for damage caused by fire, wind, vandalism, theft and other events.

Example: If your laptop is stolen from your apartment, or from your car, we’ll pay for you to replace it.

Lawsuits and Medical Bills
If someone brings a lawsuit against you, and you’re responsible, renters insurance can help pay for your defense and court costs. It can also pay for necessary medical expenses for guests who are accidentally injured in your unit.

Example: If a guest at your home trips and falls, we’ll cover their medical expenses.

Emergency Living Expenses
If you’re temporarily forced from your apartment due to a covered event, renters insurance will help cover costs such as alternate lodging and other living expenses.

Example: If a fire severely damages your apartment, we’ll help cover your hotel and meals.
