If current trends continue, they could suffer one of the costliest years in recent memory. In the first half of 2021, disasters inflicted a staggering $42 billion in losses covered by insurance, a 10-year high. Then in September, Hurricane Ida cut a path of destruction through the Gulf Coast and flooded neighborhoods from Louisiana to New Jersey, causing between $31 billion

    How Your Dog Can Impact the Cost of Homeowners Insurance

    For companies providing homeowners insurance, premiums are tied to risks. For example, it can cost more to insure a home with a trampoline or pool in the backyard. That’s because both represent a higher risk of injury, and increase the odds a homeowner will make a claim. Dogs are the same.
