Some of the Strangest Things that people are insuring

When you hear the word insurance, you most likely think of home, auto, business, health insurance, etc., but these are not the only things people can and do insure. Below are some of the strangest things insured we can find!

  1. Legs
    • It may or may not come as a shock, but several celebrities have had their legs insured. Betty Grable, Heidi Klum, and Taylor Swift are among the notable ones!
  2. Nose
    • Ilja Gort, the owner of a famous winery in France, has his nose insured due to the ability to distinguish millions of different scents that aid in his wine-making ability. However, he is now not allowed to take part in either winter sports, boxing, or fire-breathing, which would nullify the policy.
  3. Finger
    • Keith Richards has his left middle finger insured for over $1.5 million
  4. Alien Abduction
    • This policy type is becoming more and more popular, but was first made famous by Shirley MacLaine. Proving abduction has, so far, prevented these policies from having to pay out.
  5. Loch Ness Monster
    • If someone finds and proves the existence of the Loch Ness monster, Scottish Whiskey makers, Cutty Stark, will pay a one million pound reward (which they insured to help them pay if they receive proof).
  6. Voice
    • Bruce Springsteen has insured his voice in case something causes him to never be able to sing again.
  7. Hair
    • From football players to singers, hair is something you wouldn’t necessarily think of insuring, but there you are. Santa’s beard, Tom Jones’s chest hair, NFL player Troy Polamalu’s hair, and Australian cricketer Merv Hughes’s mustache are just a few examples.
  8. Teeth
    • America Ferrera is a spokeswoman for Aquafresh White Trays, and the company has taken out a large policy to protect her teeth as part of their promotion “Smiles for Success” (a charity program).
  9. Comedy
    • “Who’s on first?” Abbot and Costello insured their comedy routine against the possibility that the duo would break up. (Luckily, they did not have to use it!)
  10. Game Show
    • The game show, “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” is actually insured against someone winning the show!
