Best for most people: Cincinnati Financial
Our top homeowners insurance choice for Indiana residents is Cincinnati Financial. At just $591 per year, it had the best price of any company we looked at — along with great customer service ratings. Its NAIC Complaint Index is 0.25, meaning it received far fewer complaints than a typical company of its size.
We also like that Cincinnati Financial has endorsements that allow you to customize your policy. For example, you can include coverage for golf carts, landscaping and water damage. Cincinnati Financial is exclusively available from independent insurance agents, which means you can't buy a Cincinnati Financial policy online.
Best for bundling: Allstate
Allstate had the second-best prices among the insurers we looked at in Indiana, with an average quote of $818 per year. And you can lower those rates even more, as our research shows Allstate customers can get more than 20% off by combining policies.
Allstate's car insurance prices are on the higher side. The company also provides several useful optional coverages, including business property, damage from drain backup or a sump pump breaking and increased limits for damage to your yard and garden.
Best for military families: USAA
We recommend USAA for military members and their families. While its prices aren't the absolute best that we found in Indiana, the high level of customer service and military-specific benefits make it a strong choice for people in the armed forces.
USAA's average price in Indiana is $1,147 per year, which is $353 less expensive per year than the typical company. The company also offers a few perks for military members. For example, your personal property is covered even if you're in an active warzone, which most policies exempt from coverage. And the deductible is waived on claims involving your uniform.

Common homeowners insurance perils in Indiana
Indiana is located in the Midwest near the Great Lakes, so the most common forms of damage to homes usually involve winter storms and precipitation.
Is wind damage covered by homeowners insurance?
Wind damage is a common home insurance claim across the country, and fortunately, it's almost always covered. Wind is typically one of the named perils included in even the most basic homeowners policies.
Of course, it's best to avoid insurance claims if you can, so you can minimize the risk of wind damage by taking these precautions:
- Remove branches hanging over your house.
- Store away lawn furniture, especially if there may be a storm.
- Get your roof inspected regularly.
- Add storm shutters to your windows.
Is snow damage covered by homeowners insurance?
Indiana gets a fair amount of snowfall, which may cause damage when it piles up on your roof. Snow damage is a commonly named peril in a typical homeowners insurance policy, so homeowners insurance usually covers it.
However, your insurer may deny your claim if it determines the damage resulted from negligence. If your home is at a high risk of snow or ice damage, keep your roof free of excess snow and ice dams. That will help you avoid costly repairs.
Is flooding covered by homeowners insurance?
Although flood damage is common, homeowners insurance almost never covers it. It's usually a named exclusion from homeowners insurance policies.
Homeowners whose properties are at risk of flooding, such as those near Lake Michigan or the Ohio River, may want to consider buying flood insurance. Flood insurance covers damage to your home and personal property due to flooding.
You can purchase flood insurance policies either through the federally backed National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) or through a private insurer. The NFIP can insure homeowners in high-risk areas, but these policies have lower coverage amounts. There's also a 90-day waiting period before the policy goes into effect.
Private policies generally have shorter waiting periods and more flexible coverage limits. However, homes at a very high risk of flooding may not be eligible for coverage.
