How Do Home Insurance Claims Work?
As a policyholder, you may need to file an insurance claim with your insurer asking that they compensate you for a covered loss. After you file your claim, a few steps will typically occur. First, your insurer will review your claim. Next, if they approve your claim, they will begin to issue checks so you can start making repairs and replacing your belongings. If they deny your claim, they will notify you of that decision. It’s essential that you maintain constant contact with your insurance agent throughout the claims process.
How Do Home Insurance Deductibles Work?
A deductible is the amount of money you’re required to pay out of pocket toward a covered claim before insurance kicks in to cover the costs. Most homeowners insurance companies offer two types of deductibles: a fixed deductible and a percentage-based deductible. Your deductible affects the cost of your home insurance and your coverage. A higher deductible can make your homeowners insurance more affordable but repairs more costly, whereas a lower deductible can lead to more expensive insurance rates. When choosing your deductible, pick one that makes sense for your budget and what you can afford for any repairs or replacement.
