Your home is an important investment – protect it from damage, mishaps, and other unfortunate events with Hawaii homeowners insurance coverage from DTRIC.

What is Homeowners Insurance?

A homeowners insurance policy consists of two major components: Property Protection and Liability Protection. Homeowners insurance provides added protection for your home, family, and personal property from financial losses or liability as a result of events outlined in your policy.

Property Protection insures your home and property from certain natural disasters and perils such as fire, storms, theft and vandalism. It also protects your personal property while you are away from home. For example, if you are on vacation in Europe and your camera and clothes are stolen, those items are covered since they are considered personal property.

Liability Protection insures you if someone is injured on your property. For example, if a guest is hurt as a result of a fall in your home and files a lawsuit, your policy provides coverage for defense costs, liability claims, and medical expenses.

BASIC HOMEOWNERS COVERAGES AND HOW THEY WORK:

Coverage What it Protects
Dwelling Provides coverage for damages to your residence, including structures attached to the home.
Other Structures Provides coverage for other structures, if any, located on the premises that are not connected to the home, such as a detached garage or storage shed.
Personal Property Provides coverage for loss or damage to your personal property worldwide for its actual cash value. Personal Property refers to the wide variety of personal items in a household, including furniture, appliances, clothing and jewelry, artwork, electronics, and more.*

*Special limits may apply.

Loss of Use Provides coverage if your home is damaged due to an event covered by your policy, cannot be occupied, and requires you to stay in a hotel, motel or other temporary lodging while your home is being repaired.
Personal Liability Provides coverage for yourself against defense costs and liability claims if someone is injured on your property.
Medical Payment to Others Provides coverage to pay necessary medical expenses for others if they are injured on your property or injured as a result of your actions.

Equipment Breakdown

Many of today’s homes contain modern-day conveniences that provide homeowners with added comfort and safety. But some essential equipment, such as computers, cooling systems, and home appliances, are often prone to mechanical and/or electrical breakdown and most homeowners’ policies exclude these types of losses. To help you protect your investments, we offer our homeowner policyholders DTRIC’s Equipment Breakdown (DEB) coverage at no additional cost.  For more information on our DEB coverage, please click here.
