How you're covered

Arkansas doesn't require home insurance by law, but if you finance your home, your lender may require you to have a homeowners insurance policy in place. Your policy's coverages are designed to safeguard your property and assets. A typical policy will include the following:

  • Dwelling coverage protects your home's structure (roof, walls, etc.) as well as attached structures, like a porch.
  • Other structures coverage protects detached structures, such as a fence or shed.
  • Personal property coverage protects your personal belongings, including furniture, clothing, and electronics. Certain items, like jewelry, art, and collectibles, are often only covered up to a specific limit, so you may want to purchase an endorsement to schedule these items on your policy at the coverage amount needed, also known as "adding a rider.”
  • Personal liability coverage protects you financially if you're legally responsible for another person's injuries or damage to their property.
  • Medical payments to others pays for medical expenses due to a covered occurrence.
  • Loss of use coverage helps cover costs associated with an increase in living expenses, up to your policy's limit, if you're unable to stay in your home while it's being repaired or rebuilt due to a covered loss.

Keep in mind, coverage under your policy is subject to exclusions and conditions within your policy. It’s important to read your policy to understand the coverage provided.
