Master the details of your home insurance policy

If you've ever had a question about how home insurance works, our experts have probably explored the answer in one of our detailed guides.

When your house or belongings suffer damage that's caused by a peril — such as fire, wind or theft — that's covered by your policy, you can file a claim requesting your home insurance company pay for the costs of making you whole. The insurer then begins the process of verifying and paying your claim. Read more

The "best" homeowners insurance policy is one that provides enough coverage to protect the full value of your home and assets at a monthly rate that you can afford. Finding the best policy also requires you to understand whether you face any risks that aren't covered by standard insurance — like flooding. Read more
