Alaska homeowners insurance coverage

Homeowners in Alaska face many challenges throughout the year, particularly when harsh winters bring frozen pipes, ice dams, and snow. Liberty Mutual understands the needs of Alaska homeowners and offers customized homeowners insurance coverage to fit your specific situation.

What types of homeowners insurance coverages are recommended in Alaska?

The following insurance coverage comes standard with any homeowners policy:

Note that most tornado damage is generally covered under these standard coverage policies.

The following insurance coverages are recommended for homeowners in Alaska:

  • Flood insurance: Homeowners insurance generally does not cover damage caused by floods, which can be a significant problem in Alaska given the amount of coastline, snow and rain events, and rapid thawing in the spring. Keep in mind that even if you are not in a flood zone, flooding frequently occurs outside of flood risk areas.

    Liberty Mutual offers flood insurance in partnership with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) under the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). While flood insurance needs to be purchased separately and is often optional, it may be required to secure a home loan if you live in a high-risk flood area.

  • Personal property replacement cost: If your belongings are lost or damaged in a covered loss such as from theft or a fire, this coverage will cover the cost of brand-new replacement items.
