Coverage options

For your belongings

As a renter, you have a lot of stuff. Do you know what is typically covered by your landlord’s policy and what isn’t? We do, and we can help you protect your stuff by identifying your risks and helping you decide how to handle them, one simple step at a time.

You have several coverage choices for your personal belongings, so it’s important to figure out how much your stuff is worth to make sure you’ve got enough. You can choose from two coverage levels:

Basic coverage

This is our most popular renters insurance coverage that covers your stuff for specific risks. Specific coverages will be listed in your policy for things like:

  • Fire or lightning
  • Theft or vandalism
  • Wind or hail
  • Freezing of plumbing
  • Spoilage of refrigerated products

Premier coverage

Our best coverage. In addition to what the basic policy includes, you’ll also have protection for accidents like:

  • Power surge damage to appliances
  • Damage from spilled paint
  • Breakage of antiques1

Claim settlement options

You can also choose from the following claim settlement options:

Actual cash value covers your belongings at the cost to repair or replace the damaged property, minus depreciation.

Replacement cost covers the cost to repair or replace your belongings. So if you have a five-year-old TV you need to replace because of a covered loss, we’ll pay you for a comparable model today, minus your deductible.

Liability and medical

Liability coverage

Liability coverage is automatically included with your renters insurance and helps protect you if someone is injured on your property, you’re responsible for damages to someone else’s property, or you’re sued for those injuries or damages and have legal defense costs. You can:

  • Choose liability limits up to $1 million
  • Add optional liability coverages (for in-home businesses, watercraft, etc.) for an additional cost
  • Add a personal umbrella liability insurance policy if you need more than $1 million in coverage.2

Medical Payments coverage

Medical Payments coverage can provide coverage for others’ medical costs if they’re injured on your property. You can choose up to $25,000 in coverage.

More coverage options

You may need special coverage that our base policy doesn’t have. We offer extra choices at an added cost to customize your renters insurance.

Coverage for high value items

Some of your things are only insured up to specific limits. Some examples:

  • Jewelry, watches and furs: $2500
  • Silverware, goldware and pewterware: $2500
  • Money and other currency: $200
  • Firearms: $2500
  • Watercraft (like boats, jet skis and trailers): $1500
  • Recreational motor vehicles (like ATVs and 4-wheelers): $500

If you have high value items you have questions about, talk to your representative about insuring them separately. It’s usually very affordable and you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’re protected.

Coverage for additional risks

The following risks aren’t included with the base policy coverage, but you can buy extra coverage for:

  • Identity theft
  • Earthquake damage
  • Sump pump failure and/or back-up of sewer or drain

Flood insurance

Renters insurance doesn’t cover flood damage, and flood insurance is generally only available through the National Flood Insurance Program. We can help get you get coverage through the federal program if you qualify.3

Money-saving discounts

Our discounts can help you balance the cost of coverage with the amount of protection you need.
