What is a Loss Settlement Option?

A loss settlement option is the set amount your insurance company has agreed to pay you after an insured loss. But how is it calculated? There are 3 loss settlement options to choose from, depending on how much you want to pay and what coverage you need.

3 Loss Settlement Options:

Agreed Cash Value

Also called the “fair market value,” or the purchase price minus depreciation. Actual cash value generally has a lower premium than the replacement cost option.

Replacement Cost

It will cover the cost of replacement, up to a certain amount.

Agreed Value

This is generally for specialty items like a classic car, artwork, or jewelry collection where the payout value is agreed upon beforehand and that’s what will be paid out.

What is a Policy Limit

As a policyholder, you want to know your items are protected so you can get on with your day. Policy limits for your home, car, condo or recreational vehicle are set as the maximum an insurer pays you after a loss. Limits are defined individually per each insured item and set when you set up or renew your insurance policy.
