DSI Answers Your Home Insurance Questions

Make sure your homeowners policy provides “replacement cost” coverage for your belongings. Otherwise, your policy will only cover the depreciated or garage sale value of your belongings. Specialty coverage may be needed for high-value items such as jewelry, watches, furs, china and art work.

DSI recommends Individual Life Insurance. The proceeds can be used for any purpose your beneficiaries choose. Your designated beneficiaries decide how best to spend the proceeds including paying off the mortgage or creating college funds.With Mortgage Protection Insurance, your lender is the only beneficiary. Your family has no access to the money and are not involved in the decision on how best to use the funds.

In 2017 during Hurricane Irma, only 14% of the 3.3 million households in the nine Florida counties affected by the disaster had flood insurance coverage, according to data from Pew Charitable Trusts. Just a few inches of water can cause thousands of dollars in property damage. But flood damages are typically not covered under your standard homeowners insurance policy even though about 25% of all flood claims come from low-risk flood areas.
