Defend Your Home with Alaska Homeowners Insurance

Alaska homeowner's insurance is a comprehensive policy designed to financially provide for the repair or replacement of your home. It also covers your personal property, along with medical payments for others and legal responsibility if someone is injured on your property.

While many folks groan about having to condense their budget to accommodate yet another payment, declining Alaska homeowner's insurance leaves your home, your family and your wallet at great risk for loss.

Forms of Coverage

While there are multiple forms of Alaska homeowner's insurance, the most commonly purchased forms are known as HO-1, HO-2 and HO-3.

HO-1 is a basic policy, which provides protection against basic perils such as lightning, fire, smoke, vandalism and theft.

HO-2 is an expanded form of HO-1, and provides protection against the same perils named in HO-1 policies, in addition to perils such as falling objects, building collapse, and water damage from home appliances.

HO-3 is the most commonly purchased form of Alaska homeowner's insurance because it protects your home against "all" perils, with exclusions of flood and earthquake.

Keep in mind that there are other forms of Alaska homeowner's insurance available, such as those for condos and mobile homes; be sure to ask your agent if you think they might apply to you.

Optional Coverage

Since damage from flood and earthquake are not commonly covered under Alaska homeowner's insurance, you may wish to purchase these forms of coverage in addition to your main policy.

Earthquake coverage can be purchased through any licensed Alaska homeowner's insurance agent, and provides funds for repair or replacement of your home after an earthquake. The amount of coverage will match your dwelling coverage, but there will be a separate deductible—typically 10 percent of the coverage amount.

Flood coverage is sold through agents in an arrangement made with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), and provides funds for repair or replacement of your home from flood, flood-related erosion, mudslides and tidal waves.

Be sure to discuss these and any other forms of Alaska homeowner's insurance with your agent so that you are aware how to best protect your home.

Saving Money on Alaska Homeowners Insurance

Discounts—tend to be the largest source of saving money on your Alaska homeowner's insurance. Be sure to ask about discounts for insuring your car with the same company, and implementing safety measures such as installing extra smoke detectors or an electronic burglar alarm.

Up the Deduct—increasing your deductible will have a direct effect on your premium. Just make sure you set a deductible that you can afford if disaster strikes.

Shop Around—use InsureMe's free referral service to compare quotes from up to five companies at a time. This allows you to select the right Alaska homeowner's insurance for the right price.
