GeoVera offers earthquake, homeowners, wind, flood, residential landlord and vacant home insurance.
GeoVera earthquake insurance
Earthquake insurance covers earthquake damage to your house and personal property. Standard homeowners policies don’t cover earthquakes. However, indirect damage from an earthquake—such as a fire triggered an earthquake—is generally covered by homeowners insurance.
Your home, belongings and outside structures (such as fences) may have their own earthquake deductibles if you make an insurance claim. At GeoVera, deductibles depend on the type of earthquake coverage and where your home is.
