The Atlantic hurricane season is a little more than two weeks away, so now is a good time for homeowners along the coast to check their insurance coverage. The annual hurricane season runs for six months, from June through November. “A good place to start is your deductible,” said Amy Bach, executive director of United Policyholders, an advocacy group that works on behalf of consumers with insurance. “It’s really helpful to know what the dollar amount is.”
When you’re a homeowner, you have to deal with constant surprise challenges you may not have thought about back when you were renting a place to live. Your house may have been in pristine condition when you moved in, but time will show some issues your real estate agent may have not noticed or forgot to tell you about when you toured the place.
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.
