Homeowners insurance in Alaska is designed to cover many of the hazards that homeowners might face, including severe storms, snow and ice damage, fires, burglaries, and more. 

Most home insurance policies in Alaska include both property and liability coverage. 

Property coverage pays to repair, replace, or rebuild your damaged or destroyed home, personal belongings, and certain detached structures like garages or sheds. Loss of use coverage is also part of the protection you’ll receive after a covered property loss. It pays for certain living expenses (e.g., hotel bills, food, etc.) if you are forced to live somewhere else, like a hotel, while your home is being repaired after it sustains significant property damage. 

In addition, homeowners insurance includes homeowners liability coverage. It protects you when someone claims you have caused an injury or property damage. It covers the injured party's expenses (e.g., medical bills, property repairs) and your legal fees if you're sued. After a lawsuit, it can even cover financial settlements or court-ordered judgments.

A local independent insurance agent in Alaska can help you find the homeowners insurance coverage you need. 

The state of Alaska requires that drivers have a minimum amount of auto insurance that covers personal injury liability and property damage liability. This protects other people and their property if you’re at fault in an accident. In Alaska, all drivers must have a minimum amount of liability coverage, as follows:

  • $50,000 per person/$100,000 per accident for bodily injury or death
  • $25,000 per accident for property damage

Many states also require that you purchase personal injury protection (PIP) coverage and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. In Alaska, these are optional coverages that can be added to any policy. 

In addition, you can include several other coverage options in your car insurance policy in Alaska. These include collision insurance, comprehensive insurance, gap insurance, towing and roadside assistance, rental car reimbursement, and more. 

Because of its location and size, vast areas of Alaska are quite remote. In some of these areas, vehicle registration is not required, and therefore neither is car insurance.

Any business that owns vehicles needs commercial vehicle insurance to cover the financial losses that can result from a crash. Commercial vehicle insurance in Alaska covers your business-owned vehicles just like your personal car insurance covers your personal vehicle. 

All vehicles in the state of Alaska are required to have a minimum amount of auto liability insurance, and this applies to commercial autos as well. Alaska's auto insurance requirements are:

  • $50,000 bodily injury liability coverage per person
  • $100,000 bodily injury liability coverage per accident
  • $25,000 property damage liability coverage per accident

You can also choose from a variety of coverage options for your commercial vehicles, including collision insurance, comprehensive insurance, towing, and roadside assistance coverage. If you or your employees use personal vehicles for business purposes, you can purchase non-owned or hired auto liability insurance, which provides liability coverage for non-owned vehicles being used for business purposes.

Both your auto insurance and home insurance in Alaska provide limited amounts of liability coverage. Liability insurance pays for repairing or replacing damaged property of others. It also pays for medical expenses for injured parties, and it even pays your attorney fees, court costs, and any financial settlements or judgments you have to pay if you are sued. 

The policy limits included with your auto or home insurance policy may not be sufficient to cover a very large financial settlement. 

Umbrella insurance in Alaska offers excess liability coverage that kicks in when the limits of an underlying policy—including homeowners insurance, renters insurance, condominium insurance, or auto insurance—have been exhausted.

It might also cover a few circumstances that the underlying policy does not, such as claims for libel, slander, and false imprisonment.

If you're looking for umbrella insurance in Alaska, a local independent insurance agent can help you find the coverage you need.
