renters insurance coverage

Just because you're not ready to buy a house doesn't mean you don't need financial protection for yourself, your friends and family, and your stuff, too. Whether you're renting a tiny studio or a 3-bedroom house, renters insurance has your back if disaster (or a little bad luck) strikes.

what is renters insurance?

Renters insurance coverage protects you and your personal belongings when the worst happens. While you may only be renting your apartment or house, chances are you own most of the stuff in it. And while your landlord's insurance policy on the home typically covers the building structure itself, protecting your valuables comes down to you.

what does renters insurance cover?

Not all renters policies are the same. But in general, renters insurance can cover:

Personal property

Personal liability

Medical payments

Property damage to others

Additional living expenses

other renters coverage options

Replacement cost coverage

Sewer or drain backup coverage

Earthquake coverage

Insurance riders

Also, in most cases, you can add a cost-effective insurance rider, which provides additional protection on top of your standard policy, to get the best renters insurance coverage possible for your valuables.

disasters and incidents covered by your policy

Disasters strike in many forms, but they have one thing in common: unexpected costs. With renters insurance, you can mitigate your out-of-pocket expenses brought on by:

  • Fire or lightning
  • Windstorm or hail
  • Explosions
  • Smoke
  • Vandalism
  • Theft
  • Burglary
  • Falling objects
  • Weight of ice, snow, or sleet
  • Freezing
  • Volcanic eruption

Flood damage vs. water damage: what's covered by renters insurance?

Renters insurance generally does not cover flood damage. But if a pipe bursts in your apartment and water damages your cherished belongings, renters coverage would cover you up to your policy's limits.
