Default Does UPS automatically insure packages shipped through them?

I am setting up a shipment online and can not find a place to add insurance on the package. Does UPS automatically insure packages? If so, how much is provided?

It should be one of the options. Declared value, maybe?

does it ask you to input the value of the package? if so, then maybe it'll ask you about ins. if you put in more than $100

or something like that

Found the section for Declared Value and it automatically adjusted my cost.

Your declared value is your insured value. Declared values of a $100 or less will not effect your shipping costs.
