Home insurance coverage options in Illinois

A standard homeowners insurance policy typically includes three major types of coverage: dwelling coverage, which helps pay to repair or rebuild your home if it’s damaged or destroyed by a covered, sudden, accidental event; personal property coverage, which helps pay to repair or replace your belongings; and liability coverage, which helps in case you’re financially responsible for injury to others or damage to their property for incidents covered by the policy.

The new Farmers FlexSM Personal Home policy in Illinois gives you three highly customizable packages as a starting point:

  • Standard - Basic coverage for an affordable price
  • Enhanced - Provides higher coverage limits and additional optional features
  • Premier - Coverage with higher limits and the broadest choice of optional features
