Amanda Greene: So, my husband and I were chatting while we were cleaning up dinner the other night, and I took my rings off to wash some pots and pans that couldn’t go in the dishwasher. After I was done, I went to go put my rings back on, and I dropped my engagement ring in the sink as the water was going down the drain. My heart stopped, but thankfully I was able to grab the ring before it swirled down. It did make me wonder though, am I even covered if my ring gets lost? I think so, but not with really any confidence. That’s the thing with insurance. I have some, but I think it is time I dig a little deeper.

Welcome to Merging Into Life, where we navigate life’s milestones one episode at a time, brought to you by AAA Northeast. I’m your host, Amanda Greene. Today, we’re talking about all things insurance, umbrella, life, car, annuity. I didn’t even really know what that was until today, but I promise you this won’t be a lecture on what you should have done, or a huge downer imagining all the things that can go wrong, because this is something that can bring peace of mind when you do it right.

Now, before we dive in, we want to mention that though our guests in this episode are offering us some great expert insight, conditions vary from state to state and person to person. You should always remember to check how this advice applies to your situation with your insurance carrier.

With that being said, today, I have two guests who, when it comes to insurance, they’ve got you covered. They’re going to guide us through what we need, how to approach it, and what insurance really brings you, because it’s all about building a safety net for you and the people you love. First, I’d like you to meet Emily Buckley.
