As drivers hit the highways for weekend excursions and road trips, many will lose their basic sense of life's priorities and drive aggressively. Whether it's the false sense of control and power that being behind the wheel gives them, or the feeling of anonymity for their actions, aggressive drivers overlook the immediate safety and well-being of themselves, their passengers, and the human life in the vehicles around them.

If you don't have a policy already, or even if you already do, it is important to review your life insurance needs.

Know what your insurance deductible is so you're prepared for any out-of-pocket expenses you may incur. Find out if your insurance policy covers common expenses, such as fees to rent a car while your vehicle is being repaired and towing charges.
As we all know, there are many factors that influence our auto insurance costs, including the cars that we drive, the places we live, and our genders, ages and driving records. When it comes to the car we drive, a major consideration for insurers is whether that car is frequently stolen. If your car is on the list of most stolen vehicles, most insurance companies will charge you a higher rate to insure it.
Do you know if any part of your car has been recalled? Do you know how to find out? Many drivers may not know how to find out if the manufacturer of their vehicle has issued a recall. Perhaps you moved since you bought your vehicle, and the manufacturer does not have a current address to send a recall notice to you, meaning you may not receive important information about your vehicle.

But what may be more important (and is a factor many people do not take into consideration when shopping for insurance) is that the company you choose is financially secure.
Unfortunately, making a life insurance claim requires some paperwork - not something people want to face when a loved one passes away. But for legal and tax purposes, beneficiaries must file claims in order to receive settlement funds. These basic steps explain the process and serve as a checklist for you to make sure you're doing everything necessary during a difficult time.
