So you are loyally paying your renters insurance and home insurance premiums religiously for years. Thankfully you haven’t needed to file a claim yet.
But what if you needed to do so tomorrow… Would you be covered like you would hope to be?
It all depends on what kind of riders you have added to your policy.
Your Atlanta home insurance company offer “riders” that can be added to your policy to provide additional coverage. For example here are two riders that you can select:
- Actual Cash Value: The coverage will pay out on what the property is worth at the time of the loss. As you can imagine this takes into consideration depreciation of the item based on the Age of the item, market value and the condition of the property at the time of loss or damage. In other words a $1,000 TV when new might only be worth $150 now after a few years of use.
- Replacement Cost: This coverage will write you a check (minus the deductible) for what it would cost to REPLACE the item and buy you a new one if damaged or destroyed. It ignores depreciation completely.
