When it comes to insurance policies, it’s important to understand how an insurance deductible works. A deductible is the amount deducted from an insured loss.

A deductible can either be a specific dollar amount or a percentage. Typically, the larger the deductible, the less a consumer pays in their premiums.

For example, if you have a $500 deductible, you would pay this amount and the insurance would cover anything above the $500. So if your insurance company determined you have an insured loss of $10,000, you would receive a claims check for $9,500.

Percentage deductibles are calculated based on your home’s insured value. So if your house is insured for $100,000 and you have a 2 percent deductible, $2,000 would be deducted from a claim. If the insurance company deemed your loss $10,000, you would receive $8,000.
