Personal Finance Camp 09/03/2008

Today’s mission:  Make a list of all your insurance information:  auto, renters, homeowners, life, anything else.  Include the policy numbers, contact telephone numbers and addresses, and any other useful information.  Put a copy in a zip-top bag and put it somewhere safe.  Make a couple of extra copies and put them somewhere outside your house:  maybe at work, maybe in your glove box, maybe mail a copy to your parents.

Hopefully you will never need to use that information.  If you do, you’ll be glad to have it available without searching all over.  Good work!
