Homeowners insurance is designed to bring your home and belongings back to the condition they were in before damage occurred. Not all coverages and policies are the same so it's important to review your options before deciding what coverage is right for you. Homesite homeowners insurance policies include the following protections:
Dwelling coverage (Coverage A) covers damage or loss to your dwelling caused by a covered incident ("peril"). The amount of coverage included is based on the attributes of the home that you entered on the previous screens. The value of your dwelling can change over time or when upgrading or remodeling. It's a good idea to review your coverage limits annually.
Other Structures coverage (Coverage B) covers structures on your property that are not attached to your main building. This includes detached garages, gazebos, storage sheds, in ground pools, boathouses, or other similar structures. This limit is typically 10% of your Dwelling Coverage.
Personal Possessions (Coverage C) covers damage, destruction or theft of your personal property. Personal property includes items like clothing, appliances and furniture. There are special limits for certain items including (but not limited to) money, jewelry and silverware. If you have items valued above these special limits, such as an engagement ring, consider additional coverage specifically for these items.
Temporary Housing Expenses, also known as Loss of Use or Coverage D, this coverage reimburses you for living expenses that exceed your normal living costs if you cannot live in your home due to a covered loss. These additional costs may include hotel stays, additional food preparation costs and other expenses that exceed what you would normally spend if you remained in your home.
Medical Liability Coverage, also known as Medical Payments to Others or Coverage F, pays for medical bills when someone is injured by you personally, or on your property. Reasonable medical expenses are covered, regardless of fault, up to the amount of coverage you select.
Personal Liability or Coverage E pays for loss settlement and legal fees in the event that you or your family members cause bodily injury and/or property damage to others. For example, if you accidentally bump into someone at a grocery store who falls and then sues you, they might sue for their injury, their lost wages and other damages. Your Personal Liability coverage would indemnify you up to your coverage limit if you are found liable.
