In the enchanting world of Once Upon A Claim: Fairy Tales to Protect Your Ass(ets), familiar nursery rhymes and tales take on a whole new meaning, helping readers decipher the complexities of insurance in an engaging and creative way. Among these tales, the story of "Three Blind Mice" stands out as a whimsical and insightful introduction to the world of insurance policies.

A Nursery Rhyme with the Power of DICED

“Three Blind Mice” may be a short and simple nursery rhyme, but the Moral of the Story within the book’s context is where the true magic lies. The nursery rhyme itself tells the tale of three visually impaired mice navigating their way through the world, but it’s the extended narrative that carries the lesson.

Hidden within the pages of this story is a powerful acronym that unlocks the secrets of reading an insurance policy: DICED. Each letter represents a critical component, guiding readers through the intricacies of their insurance coverage:

  • Declarations Page: This is the starting point for understanding your insurance policy. It provides essential information about the policyholder, insured property, coverage limits, and more. 

  • Insuring Agreement: The insuring agreement is like the rhyme itself—the heart of the story. It outlines what the insurance policy covers, setting the terms and conditions for your protection. Understanding this section ensures you know precisely what’s at stake.

  • Conditions: In an insurance policy, these are the rules of the game. They detail your responsibilities as the policyholder and the insurer’s obligations. Knowing the conditions can help you navigate your policy effectively.

  • Exclusions/Endorsements: The nursery rhyme excludes certain details about the mice’s adventures. Insurance policies also exclude items or actions that are not covered. This section explains these instances. Endorsements, on the other hand, are like the mice’s unique qualities, adding or modifying coverage as needed.

  • Definitions: The definitions section clarifies any terminology used throughout the policy. It’s like a translation guide, ensuring you understand the language of your insurance contract.
