What is a Loss Settlement Option?

A loss settlement option is the amount of money your insurance provider sends you (minus the deductible), after a loss. The settlement option is determined before any loss occurs and is explained in your insurance policy.

There are 3 different loss settlement options you can choose: actual cash value, replacement cost, or agreed value.

3 Loss Settlement Options:

Actual Cash Value

ACV is a common settlement option as it covers the actual price of an insured item on the day of the loss. It’s often the cheaper option. ACV is calculated as the replacement cost minus depreciation, up to the set policy limits.

Replacement Cost

This option covers the amount you paid for the original item – up to a certain limit. This value doesn’t take reflect the depreciation. But you’ll get more money back if you have a loss.

Agreed Value

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