Weddings happen throughout the year, of course. However, May and June seem to come to mind when people think of “wedding season.” Perhaps we’re old school here at Tango, Tango & Tango? In any event, when May is around the corner, we think about all the couples heading down the aisle and wonder if they know all the benefits of combining insurance policies once their union is legal.
Wedding Season brings about new insurance savings and changes for couples
Couples entering into a legal union don’t always think about their insurance. It’s truly not the top priority during the planning of a wedding. Brides and grooms are focused on planning the wedding, and honeymoon, and many are also moving in together. Lots of planning, and organizing, but insurance isn’t necessarily on the to-do list.
If you know a couple getting married, you’ll want to share some of the benefits of adding insurance to the to-do list!
Choosing one auto insurance company for both partners
Couples who join forces and put their automobiles on the same policy can save with multi-vehicle discounts. Insurance companies love having couples, and families, on the same policy. Because they love it so much, they offer nice discounts. Visit your agent to discuss which insurance company will give you the best multi-car pricing, but also give you the coverage you both need.
Combining auto and homeowner’s/renter’s insurance
Just like insurance companies love multiple cars on one insurance policy, they also enjoy when you bundle home and auto insurance policies; or renters and auto insurance policies. Brand loyalty does work in your favor when it comes to all kinds of insurance coverages. Take advantage of the deep discounts, and bundle your multi-auto coverage with your home/renters insurance.
Updating who receives life insurance benefits/buying life insurance
If you have life insurance BEFORE getting married, make sure you adjust the primary beneficiary of the policy after the wedding day. Don’t have life insurance at all? Now’s the time to think about buying some. You’re no longer responsible for just yourself, but now you’re responsible for another person. Make sure your spouse is taken care of IF something happens to you. It’s all a part of two individuals becoming one union.
