When you purchase a home, you probably know that you need insurance for it, so you contact Prokop Insurance Services Inc. serving Plymouth, MN. When you purchase a condo, you might think that the insurance comes with the condo, since the building already has insurance.

The insurance policy for the building’s structure or the multi-building condo complex does not cover your specific domicile or the contents of it. If you make design changes, they aren’t covered either.

If you don’t already have life insurance, here are the top reasons why you need it.
