What Exactly Is a Deductible?

Simply put, a deductible is the amount of money you will pay out of pocket for any damage to your property. You will select the deductible level you want for coverage. Be sure to pick an amount you can afford. The deductible is the amount you’re required to pay before your insurance provider pays for any covered losses.
Whether insuring your home in Bourbonnais or Bradley or your vehicle in Manteno or Kankakee, the amount of your deductible will affect your premium rates. If you are willing to pay a higher deductible, you could get a lower premium. Alternatively, you might pay a higher premium rate if you choose a lower deductible.
