Covers damages to property and or its structure caused by earth movement. Most Insurance policies DO NOT INCLUDE Earthquake Coverage, therefore a separate Earthquake Policy is usually written. Rates depend on location and the probability of an earthquake loss. Here are some coverage facts:

With earthquake coverage, your deductible is based on a percentage of your overall policy limit. As an example: if the structure limit of your property is insured to $500,000, and the Earthquake Insurance Deductible amount was 15% of that, your deductible would be $75,000.

This protection covers all direct physical losses or damage to your property caused by an earthquake. Coverage can be provided to both the structure and contents of the structure.

Because the risk in California are great , here are three questions to ask yourself:

  • Can you afford the cost to rebuild or repair your home if it is damaged in a major earthquake?
  • Can you replace your personal belongings if they are damaged or destroyed?
  • Can you pay for temporary housing if there is structural damage that makes your home uninhabitable or a civil authority prevents entry to your neighborhood because of earthquake damage?

You may be surprised to learn that your Property Insurance doesn’t cover flood damage. That’s because Flood Insurance Policies are generally purchased separately through Government Programs. Most Flood Insurance Coverage is offered by the National Flood Insurance Program.

  • Furniture, clothing, and other belongings
  • Certain cleanup expenses
  • Damages to your heating and cooling system
  • Repair or replacement of flooring
