You may think that a homeowners insurance policy provides adequate coverage for all your valuables, but policies may provide limited or no coverage for certain items — including generally expensive items — that are damaged or stolen.

For example, many homeowners policies generally have a $1,000 or $1,500 coverage amount for jewelry if the loss is due to theft. Such limits are in place to help keep homeowners policies affordable. However, if jewelry valued at $2,000 is stolen from your home and you have a $1,000 policy limit, you can only receive $1,000 from your insurer to replace the missing items.

That is when an insurance endorsement (sometimes called a rider) can provide increased coverage for your possessions. For an additional premium, this coverage can help protect you from the loss of high-end valuables such as jewelry, furs, antiques, artwork and collectibles.

Here are five tips that may help you decide whether you need valuable items coverage.

It’s officially Cyber Week. That means the number of packages shipped during the holiday season will increase exponentially during the holiday shopping season. That also means that package theft is on the rise as "porch pirates" attempt to steal your gifts and purchases. 

Package theft can happen anytime but tends to happen more often during the holidays. With more consumers shopping online every year, this number of thefts will undoubtedly climb. Package deliveries increase exponentially the two-and-a-half weeks before Christmas, according to Package Concierge, a company that provides package receipt systems for apartment buildings.
