In 2015, under the National Defense Authorization Act, the Department of Defense (DoD) reduced BAH rates across the board for all service members by 1% or one percent and eliminated the cost component for renter's insurance. The adjustment was made to slow the growth of certain benefits in a fair, responsible and sustainable way due to sequestration and subsequent governmental military budget cuts.
As a result of the National Defense Authorization Act, this memo is to inform you that as of 12:00am on Friday, September 1, 2017, Rucker Communities, LLC will discontinue the provision of renter’s insurance which has historically been included in our housing.
Please note, that due to the National Defense Authorization Act, Rucker Communities discontinued the provision of renter’s insurance to incoming residents effective April 1, 2015. In most cases, residents who moved in on or after this date assumed the responsibility for securing their own renter’s insurance policy. For residents living at Rucker Communities housing prior to April 1, 2015, we made the decision to continue providing insurance on behalf of residents in order for a smooth transition to the revised 2015 BAH program. You are receiving this memo because may be one of the residents who commenced occupancy before April 1, 2015.
If this applies to you, within the next few weeks you will receive an addendum that requires your signature acknowledging this insurance change. Failure to sign and return this addendum will not result in continued coverage
Sometime in early 2018, Rucker Communities will be requiring residents to obtain renter’s insurance as part of any new lease agreement. While it is not currently required, we strongly encourage you to obtain renter’s insurance with a minimum of $50,000 liability coverage and personal property coverage.
Living without renter’s insurance could have a significant impact on you and your family in the event of the loss by having to replace your personal items and potential liability for damages caused by your actions. However, a renter’s insurance policy which costs just $15 - $25 a month can provide coverages starting at $100,000 for liability and $5,000 for personal property. Policies can be tailored with various limits and coverages at affordable costs to provide you and your family the protection you desire.
A comprehensive renter’s insurance package generally has two components: liability coverage and personal property coverage. Liability insurance will cover damage to the home or injury to a guest for which a resident is liable. But liability insurance by itself does not cover losses to your personal belongings. Personal property insurance can help protect your personal belongings and help you cover the cost of replacing them.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for liability and personal property coverage.
Know what and whom your policy covers
Know how much coverage you need
Look to bundle your insurance with existing policies for a better rate
Shop around and compare rates

If you’re working or playing outside under the hot August sun, you know that staying cool can be a challenge. It’s vital to your safety, of course, so take the proper steps to keep the heat from striking you down:
Water- Drink lots of it. Keep a water bottle handy in a shaded location so it doesn’t get too warm, and try to drink at least a cup every 20 minutes, whether you feel thirsty or not.
Shade-Avoid direct exposure to the sun when possible. Look for areas that aren’t already hot from sunlight earlier in the day, and where breezes can cool the air somewhat. Remember your sunscreen.
Break- Schedule regular breaks so everyone has a chance to cool down, get some water, and recover from the heat.
Acclimation- The body can learn to adapt to hot conditions, but don’t force it. Build up your tolerance for heat by gradually extending the amount of time you are in the sun.
Buddies- Keep an eye on your friends and family, and ask them to watch you for any signs of heat-related illness. People often don’t recognize the symptoms quickly enough.
Ceiling fans do more than just move air around. They help your heating system or air conditioner work more effectively, keeping you more comfortable year-round, while reducing your energy bills. Most fans have a reversible switch and using this switch is the trick to making your ceiling fan work in both seasons. In the summer, your blades should be rotating counter-clockwise, so that you can feel cool air being pushed down on you. This simple trick can make your room feel 3 to 4 degrees cooler and allow you to set your thermostat a little higher.
A typical family consumes 182 gallons of soda, 29 gallons of juice, 104 gallons of milk, and 26 gallons of bottled water a year. That's a lot of containers -- make sure they're recycled!
