Finance Quick Answers

 

 

What is a rider to an insurance policy?

 
A rider is simply a separate document that has special provisions not included in the main policy it is attached to. If you have special property not covered under your homeowners policy, like a valuable jewelry collection for example, you can purchase a rider to the main policy to cover the special property.
