But how do you know what you need? Our brokers are experienced in asking you the right questions so you can rest easy knowing your insurance coverage is the best it can be at the price that matches your needs.

What is a Loss Settlement Option?

A loss settlement option is the monetary value that your insurance company pays you after a loss. The settlement amount doesn’t include your deductible. So, you’ll be reimbursed your settlement amount after you pay your deductible. It’s always good to plan for a loss before it happens by selecting your loss settlement amounts when you set up your insurance policy.

Typically, your loss settlement options are actual cash value, replacement cost, or agreed value.

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 Factors Impact your Insurance Rates?

Your insurance premium may fluctuate from one year to another, or when you’ve had one or more claims made on your home, for example. There are many elements that determine your insurance rate. Make sure to look at all factors, including where you decide to live as the community you live in may dictate your rates.

We can shop around for you and guide you every step of the way.

  • Your insurance record
  • Type of loss options
  • Policy limits
  • Coverage
