How often are home insurance claims denied?
Can you tell me why claims can be denied?
There’s no hard-and-fast number for denials. Legitimate home insurance claims are usually processed, but denials can happen for many reasons. Missing a claim filing deadline, not being covered for the peril that caused the damage, or having the damage stem from neglect are the most common reasons for denial. When you have a claim, do not wait. Get in touch with your agent right away. They can walk you through the claim process so that things will be processed as smoothly as possible.

Is collision coverage a requirement for my policy on a car I've had for three years?
I paid cash for my new car back in 2018. My policy has had full coverage the whole time, but do I need it? If my car was totaled in an accident, I could just buy a new one, so why do I need this coverage?
