Raising your deductible is a simple but affective way to lower your monthly premiums.
If you upgrade your home to protect it from floods, earthquakes, hurricanes or tornadoes, you may save more on your coverage. Ask your provider if you qualify for a break!
Here’s a stat for you: In 2009, burglary victims lost an estimated $4.6 billion to property damage and theft, according to the FBI. Getting a security system in your home is a plus for insurance providers and you may get a discount.
Periodically review any insurance policy riders (those are the extra coverages at added cost ) and make sure you still need them, like for jewelry or furs.
Just ask! There may be discounts that you may not know you qualify because you simply haven’t asked! For example:
- Multi-policy discounts
- Senior citizen discounts
- Nonsmoker discounts
- Claim-free discounts
- Marital status discounts
So maybe these will help lower your CT homeowners insurance rates to give more cash in your pocket. And who doesn’t love that?!
