Renters Insurance – Retirement Daily on TheStreet: Finance and Retirement Advice, Analysis, and More

By Brad Wright, CFP

Renters insurance is vital protection that often goes overlooked. If you rent your home, you should have “Renters Insurance.”

The first home that my wife and I shared together was a rented apartment in Santa Monica, CA. It was a first-floor unit, behind a locked gate, part of the west side of greater Los Angeles. It was a lively, young, and safe community, and the thought of anything nefarious happening there never occurred to us. Then, we were robbed!
