Insurance, Interactive

Thanks to Jessica for pointing out this insurance interactive. 

Plug in your zip code and voila, you get the most common and the highest cost claims in your neighborhood. Here's what I found for my hometown in N.J.:


  • What are the most common insurance claims in your neighborhood? 
    • Click on each of the claim icons to learn more about each of these claims. 
  • Why do you think an insurance company has created this interactive? Does this information make you more/less likely to buy insurance? 
  • What is one additional piece of information you might want about this chart showing the most common types of claims? 


Check out this activity which incorporates this interactive, RESEARCH: Insurance in My State Web Quest

Tim Ranzetta

Tim's saving habits started at seven when a neighbor with a broken hip gave him a dog walking job. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim getting to know the bank tellers quite well (and accumulating a savings account balance of over $300!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a shredding truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies and helping families make better college financing decisions. After volunteering in 2010 to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and activity-based curriculum, which inspired him to start a new non-profit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
