Earthquake Insurance Coverage Details
Recent fault-line discoveries have made Californians aware that earthquakes will become more frequent in the near future. These earthquakes will also become stronger, and this increases the likelihood that damages will be sustained. This is one reason why Californians need earthquake insurance. This type of insurance protects structures and belongings and it protects against injuries. It’s sometimes purchased in a standalone policy and it's sometimes purchased as part of a homeowners insurance and earthquake insurance combination.
Earthquake insurance rates depend on a number of factors, including the level of earthquake risk one faces in the area in which he or she lives. To find out what level of earthquake risk you face, use the California Earthquake Authority’s quakes and faults tool.
Your deductible for earthquake insurance may be high, but this is beneficial in that if you suffer a total-home loss, you will be covered and your home will be replaced or reconstructed without large financial losses coming to you.
