Protect Your Home from a Disaster

While you can't plan for earthquakes, you can be prepared.

Be Prepared for the Next Big One

Earthquake insurance is a form of property insurance that provides coverage if your home is damaged by an earthquake. Most standard homeowner and renters policies will not cover earthquake damage. Earthquake insurance is usually a separate endorsement you must buy and add to your homeowner or renters policy, or purchase a separate earthquake policy.

There are several things to consider when purchasing earthquake insurance, including:

  • Does the policy cover only your home? Are other structures, such as garages, also included?
  • Will your policy pay for the contents of your home and for additional living expenses if your home is badly damaged or destroyed?
  • Are there any exclusions or limitations to coverage?
  • What deductible must you pay before the insurance kicks in?
