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:

Actual Cash Value

actual cash value is the price of an insured item, based today’s value. This value is replacement cost minus depreciation, up to the set policy limits.

Replacement Cost

Replacement cost will cover the price you paid for the original item – up to a certain amount. This does not consider depreciation, but you’ll get more money back if you have a loss. 

Agreed Value

Agreed value is the price the adjuster and the insured agree upon as the price that you’ll get after an insured loss.

We advise you to keep a list of all your items at home, including your receipts. Taking a video of your belongings also helps, including the back of your TVs and inside of drawers.

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.
