When filing a claim the rate of your deductibles is an essential factor to consider. It may have been set up long ago in your home insurance policy and you haven’t taken the time to understand how it works. The insurance company would expect you to pay a certain amount (deductible) which is detailed in your home insurance policy and this will be deducted from the payout expected from the insurance company as compensation for your property loss. For instance, if your deductible is $2,500 and you expect a payout of $10,500… the payout then becomes $8,000 having deducted the deductible stated in the agreement.
Deductibles vary based on damage types and are usually defined by the insurance company by calculating the rate of deductibles to correspond with the degree of damages. The insurance company would also want to be on a safe side so they would usually charge higher deductibles if you live in a vicinity that is prone to attacks such as theft, hurricane, flood, etc.
Usually, the rate of your deductible is influenced by the amount you pay as premium. If your deductible is high then your premium is likely to be less.
The deductible is stipulated on the contract page of your home insurance agreement and cannot be renegotiated when filing a claim. At Firehouse Adjusters, we are open to help you understand your deductible and other agreements on your insurance policy that you may find difficult to comprehend. Feel free to contact us for clarification anytime.
