Scheduled Personal Property

AAA

DEFINITION of 'Scheduled Personal Property'

Additional coverage that's over and above the typical coverage in a homeowners' insurance policy. Scheduled personal property protects valuable items that are out of the ordinary and need to carry separate coverage to ensure that their full value is covered in the event of a claim. Each item that the insured wishes to schedule needs to be added separately to the insurance policy and generally an additional premium is charged.
