Losing a home to a wildfire can be a frightening and emotional experience. Knowing what your homeowners insurance policy covers and being prepared with a home inventory can help with your peace of mind, particularly if you live in an area that is at a higher risk.
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.)
Those 70 percent may enhance their coverage moving forward, but for them, it’s already too late. The uninsured damage has been done. If history is any indication, the key for consumers is to avoid being among this 70 percent left staring at a claim that will never be processed or only partially paid.
