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.
Nineteen states and the District of Columbia have hurricane deductibles, according to the institute. Some states — including Alabama, Mississippi and South Carolina — offer a tax deduction for money deposited in special catastrophe savings accounts, to help homeowners set aside funds for their hurricane deductibles. Some policies offer discounts if homeowners use reinforced shutters to protect windows, or use special clips or straps to help secure roofs during storms.
Some insurers might not include wildfires as a “covered peril” in areas that are prone to repeated wildfires. If you live in a state where wildfires are more common, your homeowners premium will most likely reflect that increased risk.
