What Does Home Insurance Cover?
Different areas of home insurance are designed to cover various dangers that your family and your home may face. The main coverages available under a basic home insurance policy include:
Additional Coverages to Consider
Dwelling Coverage: This provides compensation if the home’s physical structure is damaged due to fire, wind, hail, lightning, smoke or vandalism.
Personal Belongings Coverage: This provides compensation if your physical belongings are lost or damaged due to fire, smoke, lightning, theft or vandalism.
Liability: This covers bodily injury and property damage that may occur on your home’s property. If someone falls down the stairs, for example, liability insurance can help cover their medical bills and protect you from a lawsuit regarding the injury.
Additional Living Expenses: This coverage—known as ALE—helps with the costs related to temporarily moving if your home is rendered uninhabitable by a disaster.
While home insurance policies cover many risks, a basic policy won’t cover everything. You may need additional coverage to protect your home and family completely. Additional coverages may include:

Policy Floaters: Home insurance policy floaters, sometimes known as policy endorsements, can be added to your policy to cover items and risks that are normally excluded. For example, many home insurance policies have limited coverage for expensive items—such as jewelry, furs and art. Policy floaters can help cover these items.
Flood Insurance: Home insurance policies also exclude damage caused by flooding. However, you can purchase a flood insurance policy to cover damages to your home and belongings caused by natural flooding.
Umbrella Liability Insurance: This insurance fills in gaps left by your other liability policies.
