Home insurance premiums in Illinois
The average Illinois home insurance premium in February 2015 was $791.00. It appears that premiums have increased since January when average premiums in Illinois were around $779.00. This reflects the annual cost of a standard home policy and does not include flood insurance or earthquake insurance.
Average Illinois homeowners insurance rates, similar to those in other states, are in constant flux. That means you should always be paying attention to the price you are paying for home insurance and looking for more ways to save. Home insurance experts recommend shopping coverage once a year in order to find the best savings.

Illiniois homeowners insurance and flood policies
Even though Chicago was named one of CBS News' Top 10 Safest U.S. cities from Natural Disasters, keep in mind that standard Illinois homeowners insurance policies do not offer coverage for flood damage. Remember all the flood victims in the Northeast when Superstorm Sandy hit in 2012? Many didn't live in flood plains and didn't think they needed flood coverage. The lesson learned there is that every homeowner should at least consider purchasing a flood insurance policy. Homeowners in Illinois can purchase flood policies through the National Flood Insurance Program. Check here to see if your home is located in a flood plain.
