Standard California homeowners insurance coverage
When it comes to California homeowners insurance, most residents think of dwelling coverage the part of a policy that covers the structure of the home from perils such as wind and fire. But there's more than that to standard policies. The following coverages typically are offered:
- Personal Liability Protection: Offers help if someone other than you or a family member is injured on your property and plans to sue.
- Medical Payments: If someone other than you or a family member is injured on your property and decides not to sue, medical payments coverage offers reimbursement for medical payments.
- Other Structures: A standard California homeowners insurance policy would include this coverage for structures on your property besides your home such as a detached garage or fence.
- Contents/Personal Property: Protects the personal property inside your home such as electronic and furniture. You may need to purchase extra coverage for collectibles, art or expensive jewelry. This coverage helps if you're the victim of theft. Among larger California cities, Oakland and Sacramento have burglary rates that exceed the national average, according to the 2012 FBI Report on Offenses Known to Law Enforcement. Long Beach and San Jose have rates below the national average.
- Loss of Use: This coverage will pay for alternative accommodations and living expenses if you're unable to live in your home due to damage caused by a covered peril.
Don't settle for "shaky" coverage in California
The Golden State has breathtaking coastline, the rolling hills of wine country, and snowcapped mountain peaks. But the beautiful state of California also experiences earthquakes, which aren't covered by standard home insurance policies. According to the California Department of Conservation, each year California generally gets two or three earthquakes large enough to cause moderate damage to structures. Los Angeles and San Francisco are both considered to be seismic hot spots, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. If you are a California resident then you should consider adding coverage to protect your home from earthquakes. To learn more about earthquake insurance and earthquake preparedness visit the California Earthquake Authority website.
Flooding, like earthquakes, is another peril not typically covered by standard homeowners policies. If you want flood coverage you'll have to purchase a separate flood policy through the National Flood Insurance Program. No matter if you live in San Jose or Long Beach, all homeowners should consider flood insurance. Disasters like Superstorm Sandy prove that you don't have to live in a flood plain to be hit by a flood. Make an informed decision and learn more about the National Flood Insurance Program.
Not sure what perils are covered in your policy? It's always a good idea to review your policy and reference it whenever a question arises. Keep in mind, you can always make an adjustment in coverage to make sure your home sweet home is fully protected.
