What You Need to Know About Earthquake Insurance

Impossible to predict, earthquakes can cause major damage to your personal property and home. It is a common assumption that homeowners insurance covers earthquakes and other natural disasters, but this isn’t always the case.

Earthquake insurance can also provide coverage for soil liquefaction caused by earthquakes. Soil liquefaction can induce different types of ground failure causing a house to settle or tip. It can also cause flow failures that may produce fast-moving debris flows.

  • Consider retrofitting your home to be sound, especially if it is an older home.
  • Securely anchor large appliances to the wall and brace your water heater.
  • Secure heavy equipment such as TVs and computers to the furniture on which they are placed.
  • Use closed screw eyes instead of traditional picture hangers to secure pictures and other valuable artwork to the walls.
  • Many insurance companies have specific enrollment periods for earthquake insurance coverage. If you choose not to add the coverage when you purchase a homeowners policy, you may need to wait until your policy renews to add the coverage.
