Key Features of Homeowners Insurance
Selecting the right homeowners insurance is one of the most important steps you can take to protect your house and your belongings. Here are some key features and benefits that The Hartford offers for home insurance.
Not all features and benefits are available in all states.
100% Protection Plan
When you choose this homeowners insurance benefit and insure your home for 100% of its replacement cost, you’re assured that if something happens to your home, we’ll pay the full cost to rebuild it—even if it costs up to 125% of the applicable limits of your policy.
"New For Old" Protection
With our optional replacement cost coverage for contents, we’ll pay the actual cost of replacing your possessions—regardless of age or condition—with brand new items of equal quality.
Homeowners Deductible Forgiveness
When times are tough, we’re here to help you out. That’s why if you experience a qualifying loss of $25,000 or more, we’ll waive up to $5,000 of your homeowners insurance deductible.
This coverage does not apply to special deductibles such as hurricane, earthquake, coal mine subsidence, special wind/hail or optional special theft deductibles.
24/7 Homeowners Claims Hotline
Our homeowners insurance claims professionals are available any time of the day or night, ready to assist you with service that is backed by a satisfaction commitment.
Special Protection Packages
As an easy and convenient way to add to your homeowners insurance protection, we offer packages that bundle some of the most requested coverage for valuables. These packages offer increased coverage for jewelry, silverware, credit cards and personal liability. They also offer additional coverage, such as lock replacement and loss of perishable food to your home insurance.
Available packages may vary by state.
Scheduled Personal Property
For homeowners who need more than $5,000 of protection for valuables, or have special valuables such as antiques or fine art, our scheduled personal property coverage allows you to list items and their value for more customized protection. (Appraisals may be required.)
Be Flood Smart!
Most homeowners insurance policies don’t cover flood damage to your home or its contents. The good news is that flood insurance is available from The Hartford through the federally-backed National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Click here to learn more about flood insurance and to request a quote.
