How will my home insurance company take my deductible?
"I have a $500 deductible for my home insurance. If I file a claim, will my insurance company take the $500 out of the payout or will I have to pay the deductible upfront?
“When you file a claim, the deductible is typically taken from the total loss amount before the home insurance company pays out. For example, let’s say you have a total loss amount of $2,000 and your deductible is $500. The insurance company will typically subtract the deductible from the total loss amount and then pay you the difference, leaving you with a $1,500 payout. “

How do I understand what my gap insurance covered?
I don't understand what my gap insurance paid for. I owed $10,000 on my car. My insurance valued my car at $8,000. There was a refund of $1,000 for an extended warranty. The gap insurance paid $1,000 to cover my loan. Is this amount right? Shouldn't it pay more?
