"After reading a little about EQ insurance, I was concerned. A quick online quote but I really did have some questions and needed to talk to someone. I spoke with Linda at HDA who answered a few questions and I bought the policy within a few minutes! I now understand the coverage and how the % based deductible applies."

Earthquake Insurance

Depending on where you live, Earthquake Insurance may be the most important form of coverage for your home. Most Homeowners Insurance policies don’t cover damage caused by earthquakes; it is important to get a quote and assess your risk. 

Earthquake Insurance is generally written as a separate policy; HDA Insurance can help you select your coverage based on your personal appetite for risk.  As a general rule, the lower the premium, the less likely to suffer a seismic event.  

When insuring your home, remember you are insuring the reconstruction cost of the dwelling, not the sales value of the land.

Coverage Details

The most important thing before buying earthquake insurance is understanding the coverage, the deductible and making sure that the policy limit will be sufficient to reconstruct the home in the event of a total loss. 

Our online apps are great but if earthquake insurance isn’t your expertise, it may be worth asking one of our licensed staff to help you.  There’s no premium charge or fee to ask for our help and get your questions answered.

Earthquake insurance covers damage to your home, personal belongings and additional living expenses if you need to temporarily live somewhere else after an earthquake up to the policy limits.

Three main components exist in all earthquake policies; Dwelling (house), Personal Property & Additional Living Expenses. Coverage will be subject to the limits of each purchased on the policy. 

The cost of earthquake insurance varies with each home and policyholder’s coverage selection. A home is typically covered up to the same Dwelling limit covered by the Fire Insurance policy; however, Earthquake Insurance has a very different deductible structure. The deductible is percentage based, the percentage of the coverage (not a percentage of the damage). 

If a homeowner is going to continually lose sleep over thinking about an earthquake, he/she should buy Earthquake Insurance.   There is a risk of earthquake damage in 42 of 50 states today; however, the greatest risk exists along the Pacific Coast (CA, OR & WA)  plus Hawaii & Alaska are also areas of higher risk.
