If you’ve had a baby, renovated your practice, planned a long trip, entered retirement, or made any other life changes, it’s probably time to update your insurance. Here are a few tips to help keep you properly covered:
What’s new at your practice?
- Your TripleGuard™ Insurance1 coverage may need to increase if you acquire new equipment or make leasehold improvements.
- Dental supply companies can help you assess equipment replacement costs.
You’re expanding your practice? Congratulations!
- If you have TripleGuard™ Insurance for your office, or Building Insurance1, it’s important to talk to an insurance advisor if you’re planning significant renovations.
As your income increases…
- Increase your DisabilityGuard™ Insurance2 coverage to help protect your income in the event that illness or injury limits your ability to practise.
As your overhead increases…
- Review your Office Overhead Expense Insurance (OOE)2 if there are any changes—such as a rent increase, additional employees, or added equipment leases.
When your personal life changes…
- Marriage, children, a new home, increased debt—any of these can be reasons to re-evaluate your Basic Life and Term 100 Insurance2 coverage needs.
- It’s also important to keep your named beneficiaries up to date as your circumstances change.
What’s changed at home?
- Significant renovations to your home will increase the cost to re-construct should you need to make a Home Insurance3
- Make sure your coverage for jewellery or other valuables keeps pace if they increase in value or you make additional acquisitions.
Are you planning a long trip?
- Premiums for annual Travel Edge Insurance4 are based on how long you are going to be away for any individual trip. If you are contemplating a longer trip, you may need to top up your coverage.
Are you transitioning?
- As you approach retirement, or achieve a higher net worth, you might be able to self-insure or reduce certain coverages.
