Florida Hurricane Insurance Cost FAQs

  • What Is Hurricane Insurance?

    Hurricanes yield two major problems: wind and water damage. Generally speaking, there is no such thing as “hurricane insurance,” or a specific policy that Florida homeowners can purchase to protect against these storms. Instead, a combination of homeowners insurance – which by law includes coverage for wind damage from hurricanes – and flood insurance provide the required protection.

  • How Much Does Hurricane Insurance Cost?

    For many reasons, it’s difficult to estimate how much money it will cost to protect your home against hurricane damage. Among them:

    • Hurricane coverage consists of multiple insurance policies, each of which can vary in cost
    • Prices fluctuate from one carrier to the next
    • Some parts of the state are considered higher-risk
    • Home values affect the cost of coverage

    However, the average cost of homeowners insurance in Florida is $1,951 and the average cost of flood insurance is $723, according to Bankrate. Therefore, on average, Florida homeowners pay approximately $2,674 per year in premiums to protect against hurricane damage.

    In addition, all Florida homeowners are subject to a special deductible for hurricane damage. This deductible is triggered by losses resulting from a hurricane that’s been declared as such by the National Weather Service. Losses apply to damages:

    • That occur from the moment a hurricane watch or warning has been issued anywhere in the state;
    • Up to three days after a watch or warning ends; and
    • Any time hurricane conditions are present throughout the state

    The deductible – which applies once per hurricane season – is based on a percentage depending on the degree of risk to the property. Insurers in Florida must offer deductible amounts equal to $500, 2%, 5%, and 10% of the policy dwelling limits (unless the percentage deductible is below $500). 

    The insurance company won’t pay for any damages until the deductible has been reached.

  • How Can a Hurricane Insurance Lawyer Help?

    Even if you do everything right when filing your claim, the insurance company might still make it difficult to recover compensation. Ultimately, the insurance company’s goal is to protect their bottom line, which is at odds with your best interest. They may employ tactics such as:

    • Delaying the processing or payment of your claim
    • Making inadequate offers that fail to address all of your damages
    • Demanding that you sign a written release of supplemental claims before they pay your claim
    • Arguing that certain damages are not covered by your policy, even though they are
    • Attempting to convince you that an inadequate offer is the best outcome you can hope for
