Why you need insurance for your personal articles
Anything that isn’t permanently attached to your home or your property is most likely considered personal property. Personal articles coverage may offer broader coverage than your existing homeowners policy, helping ensure you can repair or replace those items you value (and even those you don’t).
Items a Personal Articles Policy may protect
Jewelry, collectibles1, fine art, furs
Cameras, computers and software, musical instruments, bicycles, silverware, sports equipment2
Hearing aids, medical devices, prosthetic devices, personal mobility devices and wheelchairs
What a Personal Articles Policy doesn’t cover
While coverage protects your personal property for many loss situations, there are some exceptions. Your State Farm agent and items outlined in your policy will help you understand details about your personal property coverage.
What if I’m not at home?
Personal property doesn’t have to be in your home to be protected by your policy. Your coverage travels with you — whether you’re enjoying the vacation of your dreams or running weekly errands.
Personal Articles Policy features
Personal property coverage applies anywhere in the world. When you go on vacation, items such as jewelry and cameras are covered (fine art items are only covered within the United States and Canada).
Replacement cost coverage
We'll pay the cost to repair or replace your personal property, without deduction for depreciation up to the applicable limit. The Personal Articles Policy insures against theft and accidental direct physical damage to covered property with some limitations and exclusions.
Although available if desired, there generally is no deductible on a Personal Articles Policy.
Broad Pair and Set coverage3
You’ll be covered for the full amount of the value specified on your policy needed to replace an item or items of jewelry that are part of a pair or set. For example, a pair of earrings would qualify for this coverage.
The amount of coverage is automatically adjusted annually based on the Consumer Product Inflation index. Valuable items should be professionally reappraised regularly.
Wedding present coverage
In addition to coverage for your engagement and wedding rings, we can cover your wedding gifts as well. Adding the Wedding Gift endorsement provides temporary coverage (before and up to 90 days after your wedding) to protect your gifts. Refer to the policy for a complete description of the Losses Not Insured.
