A home insurance deductible is what you pay out of pocket to repair your home if you have a claim. For example, if you have a $500 deductible and $2,000 in repair costs, you’ll pay $500 and Safeco will pay the remaining $1,500.
You have a choice of deductible amounts; choosing a higher deductible lowers your insurance rate but requires greater out-of-pocket expenses should you have an accident. Connect with an agent today to learn more.

No. A standard homeowners policy does not generally cover damage caused by earthquake and floods. These sources of damage require additional coverage or a separate policy.
If you live in an area that is prone to these types of events, talk to your local Safeco agent about making sure you’re properly covered.
Flood insurance is available through the National Flood Insurance Program.
The damage can be similar but the cause is different.
Water damage is usually caused by water coming from something like a burst pipe, an overflowing toilet, a dishwasher that leaks all over the kitchen floor, or a roof that leaks after a hard rain.
Flood damage is caused by water coming from something like an overwhelmed levee that breaks, a clogged drainage system, a river or lake that overflows or even just the ground being inundated with too much water after a torrential storm. Water seeping into your basement after a heavy rain or winter runoff is usually also considered flood damage.
