If my home insurance claim is denied, will my premium rise as a direct result?

Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Alexah on January 15, 2021

I know premiums can rise after a claim is paid out, but what about when claims are denied?

Yes, even if your insurance company denies your claim, it can impact your premium in the future. Although it may seem unfair, insurance companies set your premium based on your willingness to submit a claim. Anytime you call the claims department, they have to record it as a claim, and even if it’s denied or nothing is paid out, the company will still be able to see the attempted claim and set your premium based upon that.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
