Loretta Worters, a spokeswoman for the Insurance Information Institute, a trade group, said some insurers include the dollar value of the deductible, along with the applicable percentage, to eliminate confusion. A hurricane deductible is distinct from the deductible for other sorts of damage to the home and usually goes into effect when a storm is categorized as a hurricane by the National Weather Service — or, in some cases, when a storm is named, even if doesn’t become a hurricane. (Some policies have separate windstorm deductibles that apply even for unnamed storms.)
In a year that’s brought potentially unprecedented damage across the United States from natural disasters, consumers surveyed by Clearsurance said they were concerned a natural disaster could also cause damage to their own home. Yet despite 87 percent of respondents expressing concern, very few took action by enhancing their existing insurance policy or purchasing a new one.
If you live in an area or state that is at a higher risk for wildfires, it’s important to make sure that your home inventory is kept up to date, and is stored in a safe location-consider keeping a copy in a secure digital location “in the cloud” so that even if your computer or laptop are damaged, you’ll still be able to access a copy. A safe deposit box or a fire-resistant safe are two options for physical copies.
