Homeowners insurance is an important part of owning a home. That’s because your home not only provides you and your family with shelter from the dangers of the outside world, it is probably your largest financial investment. But do you really understand your homeowners policy? For example, do you know if your policy covers floods? What disasters does your policy cover? Are there steps you can take to lower your premium? FLASH and The Actuarial Foundation have teamed up to publish “If Disaster Strikes Will You Be Covered: A Homeowner’s Insurance Guide to Natural Disasters,” a new guide designed to help you learn about homeowners insurance. Eleven sections will give you basic information about homeowners insurance, tell you how you can lower your premium, give you tips on reducing potential damages due to several disasters, and much more!
