Renters Insurance Question
« on: August 30, 2011, 11:57:34 AM »
Do you need to be able to show a lease agreement or some other form of proof of residence when making a claim with renters insurance? If you do is it going to be a problem to file a claim if you live in an illegal apartment?

That I know. They don't look too carefully when it comes to taking your money. I'm just wondering what's going to happen if you ever have to collect.

Well I have filed a claim on my laptop through my renters insurance policy and they didn't ask for any proof of residence...

USAA didn't ask for a contract and coverage is good for Israel too. Made no issues when a claim was filed.

Do you happen to know if USAA also has a coverage package for electronics (laptops/cell phones)?

AFAIK, everything in your apartment/house is covered mind the deductible.
