Raise your deductible to save on your premium.
The Hayden Agency can guide you through the process.
Deductibles are the amount of money you have to pay toward a loss before your insurance company starts to pay a claim, according to the terms of your policy. The higher your deductible, the more money you can save on your premiums. Nowadays, most insurance companies recommend a deductible of at least $500. If you can afford to raise your deductible to $1,000, you may save as much as 25 percent. Remember, if you live in a disaster-prone area, your insurance policy may have a separate deductible for certain kinds of damage. If you live near the coast in the East, you may have a separate windstorm deductible; if you live in a state vulnerable to hail storms, you may have a separate deductible for hail; and if you live in an earthquake-prone area, your earthquake policy has a deductible.

There's no place like home
When you’re buying a home, consider the cost of Connecticut and New York homeowners insurance
You may pay less for insurance if you buy a house close to a fire hydrant or in a community that has a professional rather than a volunteer fire department. It may also be cheaper if your home’s electrical, heating and plumbing systems are less than 10 years old. If you live in the East, consider a brick home because it's more wind resistant. If you live in an earthquake-prone area, look for a wooden frame house because it is more likely to withstand this type of disaster. Choosing wisely could cut your premiums by 5 to 15 percent.

Check the CLUE (Comprehensive Loss Underwriting Exchange) report of the home you are thinking of buying. These reports contain the insurance claim history of the property and can help you judge some of the problems the house may have.

Remember that flood insurance and earthquake damage are not covered by a standard homeowners policy. If you buy a house in a flood-prone area, you'll have to pay for a flood insurance policy that costs an average of $400 a year. The Federal Emergency Management Agency provides useful information on flood insurance on its Web site at A separate earthquake policy is available from most insurance companies. The cost of the coverage will depend on the likelihood of earthquakes in your area. In California the California Earthquake Authority ( provides this coverage.

If you have questions about insurance for any of your possessions, be sure to ask the Hayden Agency team. For example, if you run a business out of your home, be sure to discuss coverage for that business. Most homeowners policies cover business equipment in the home, but only up to $2,500 and they offer no business liability insurance. Although you want to lower your homeowners insurance cost, you also want to make certain you have all the coverage you need, that's where we come in!

By adding umbrella coverage to your home and auto insurance in New York and Connecticut, you’re protecting many of your most important assets.

Vet visits are twice as expensive as they were 10 years ago, but that shouldn't keep you from giving your pet the best care. Take good care of your BEST FRIEND.

Some insurance tips from The Hayden Agency in Connecticut

1. Choose deductibles that result in the optimal cost of risk
The general principle is the higher the deductible, the lower the premiums. By analyzing past losses in conjunction with insurance premium quotes for different deductible options, it becomes clear which deductible is best. A maxim in risk management is “don’t insure losses that you can predict and afford to pay.”

The key is to strike a balance between premium savings and claims costs. This should be done in consultation with your insurance broker. A risk management consultant may also be useful in determining optimal deductible levels.

2.. Make sure your values and property limits are accurate
Do not over or under insure! Either way, it could cost you money. Make sure that the values you report to the insurance company are accurate. Accurate values and limits mean you are adequately covered, but that you aren't paying an excessive amount.

Some insurers and brokers may provide building valuations, so ask. If you aren’t sure of your values, have appraisals done. We can then help provide your insurance in CONNECTICUT with our easy process.
We all need some form of insurance in our lives. But the variety of insurance products on the market can be overwhelming.
