Lower premiums

Renewal dates for your 2 policies are poorly aligned

Topic: Other Key Topics
Premium effect: Decrease

You have 2 policies (Other-101 Rue-12 months/Other-David-12 months) that renew on 2/13 and 8/13. The fewer and better aligned the dates, the easier it is to manage your insurance - getting to one or two very close dates greatly simplifies the process. For this purpose, life policies are treated as annual policies and only included if the policy expiration is no more than two years in the future, and non-life policies renewing on the last day of a month are assumed to always renew on the last day of the month.

Valentina should be excluded from coverage

Topic: Auto
Premium effect: Decrease

It appears that Valentina should be excluded from coverage for your auto(s) since she does not have a license.

Some insurers surcharge for excluded drivers.

More coverage

Other ideas

Household annual premiums of 1,250 are big enough to devote attention

Topic: Other Key Topics
Premium effect: Mostly neutral

You spend 1,250 each year on your various insurance policies. Your total annual premium is significant enough for you to spend some time trying to ensure you are not overpaying. It represents 1.3 % of your future household annual income and 0.6 % of your household net worth. Bear in mind that if anything changed on a non-life policy, you only pay for the portion of the policy term for which the endorsement was effective. To correctly compute annual premium, the cost of the endorsement for the full policy term must be included in the premium.

Your term life insurance covering David makes sense, is the amount appropriate?

Topic: Life
Premium effect: Mostly neutral

Your life insurance provides a benefit of 100,000 on the death of David. The death benefit represents 250 % of the annual decline in future household income.
