Renters Insurance Policy Declarations

What Are Renters Policy Declarations?

Renters Insurance Policy Declarations is the document that provides an overview of the coverages, limits and deductibles you've purchased. You'll receive a new declarations document each time you renew your policy, which is typically every year. It's a good idea to read through your renewal documents to make sure everything's accurate, you have the coverage that fits your needs and to make sure you're up to date on any changes to your premium and other important information.
