What is a Declaration Page (Dec Page) in Home Insurance?
In homeowners insurance, your declaration page is equivalent to your proof of insurance. The declaration page is a PDF that provides a summary of the coverages, terms, and limits included in your insurance contract. It should include your policy number, effective date, expiration date, premium and the six most significant coverage limits in your homeowners polices are Coverage A - F:
- Coverage A: Dwelling
- Coverage B: Other Structures
- Coverage C: Personal Property
- Coverage D: Loss of Use
- Coverage E: Personal Liability
- Coverage F: Medical Payments
Additionally, there are deductibles and sometimes even discounts listed on your declaration page. Common deductibles include:
- AOP - All Other Perils Deductible
- Wind Deductible
- Hail Deductible
- Named Storm Deductible
- Hurricane Deductible
- Water Damage Deductible
- Water Backup Deductible
- Earthquake Deductible
- Flood Deductible
Finally, your declaration page will include specific endorsements/exclusions in your policy for perils like mold remediation, water backup, or scheduled jewelry.
