How many of your possessions could you name and describe accurately if an insurance adjuster asked for a list? No one likes to think about experiencing a household disaster, but taking stock of the items you own is wise protection. A complete and accurate accounting of your household furnishings and personal possessions can help you sette insurance claims and documenting losses for tax purposes, create an inventory to indicate the monetary value of your belongings for a net worth statement, provide proof of ownership in the case of separation or divorce, and decide how much insurance to carry on household goods.

This publication contains over 40 pages of forms to help you record your possessions. You are encouraged to print them out for your own use.
