Dwelling Coverage (Rebuild Value)
Property or Dwelling Coverage is what pays to rebuild or repair your home in the event of a catastrophe such as a fire or windstorm.
Coverage for secondary structures that aren't directly attached to your home. These could include buildings such as detached garages, sheds, fences, awnings, etc.
Personal Property Coverage
Your home is filled with different items such as clothing, electronics, furniture and many more that can be costly to replace. This coverage helps you replace these items in the event of a loss such as a fire, theft, water damage and many more.
Additional Living Expenses
If you can't live in your home for a covered loss, this coverage will pay for any additional living expenses incurred making it easier to have somewhere to stay while your home is being repaired or rebuilt.
This coverage applies if someone is injured or their property is damaged and you are legally responsible. It covers the cost of damages as well as the cost to defend yourself. This coverage generally applies anywhere in the world.
It is important to factor in what assets you own and how much income you make when considering your liability limit amounts. Most policies cover up to $500,000. If you think you may need more you may consider an umbrella policy.
Medical Payments to Others
This covers immediate medical expenses for guests that are injured on your property. It does not cover you or any of your household members.
Scheduled Personal Property
Most home insurance policies have limits for special items inside your home such as jewelry, art, guns, and collectibles. You can add specific items onto your policy or increase these limits to make sure you have enough coverage for these items.
