How much liability coverage do I need?

In general, it is suggested that you have at least enough liability coverage to protect what assets you have. That should include the value of your home, vehicles, and any savings that you have. The default amount is usually $100,000 and this may not be nearly enough. 

Does my home insurance cover floods?

Unfortunately, no home insurance does not cover floods. If you live in an area where floods are a danger, you should purchase a dedicated flood insurance policy. 

Is my jewelry covered by my home insurance?

Yes, jewelry is covered under contents coverage. There are limits on the coverage. Check your policy and consider adding a rider to give you additional coverage if you need it.
