Do You Know What Your Home Insurance Really Covers?

WOW! According to a survey conducted by MetLife, 31% of Americans don’t know how much their home insurance coverage is, according to an Insurance Literacy survey. Many don’t know the difference between replacement cost and market value. Most believe their policy will pay “full cost” to rebuild their home after a major loss, and they don’t understand how the deductible applies.

More than half stated that they would rather pay more than not be covered for a loss. The BEST VALUE is  to select coverage that meets your needs, instead of just seeking the lowest price. Your Trusted Choice agent can help you get value for the money you pay.

Did you know - you have options available to protect the data and programs on your mobile devices?
Did you know – your college kids living on campus may be covered under your current home policy?
Did you know – earth movement and earthquake is not typically covered under a home policy and may require an endorsement or a separate policy?
Did you know – water or sewer backup into your home is typically not covered without adding an endorsement?
Did you know – there are limitations on your home policy for jewelry and collectibles?

Your Trusted Choice agent will spend time with you and explain what your policy really covers. Insurance is a complex contract and NOT something you can buy “in a box”, even though advertisers try to convince you to believe this.
