Best home insurance companies in Indiana

Erie, American Family and USAA stand out as the four best homeowners insurance companies in Indiana in our study. Here's why:

Erie: best value for Indiana homeowners insurance

Erie's home insurance rates are well below the Indiana state average. Plus, the company offers superior customer service and maintains a firm financial backing.

Erie has the lowest home insurance premiums in Indiana. At an average $104 a month, the company provides excellent value.

And you won't sacrifice quality coverage or customer satisfaction for those cheaper rates. Erie came in fourth for overall customer service satisfaction in J.D. Power's 2021 U.S. home insurance study. J.D. Power gave the company 835 on a 1,000-point scale for customer satisfaction — 10 points above the industry average of 825.

Erie's financial strength is a good indicator of its ability to pay out claims. A.M. Best, a credit rating agency that focuses on the insurance industry, gave Erie an A+ “Superior” rating for financial strength.

American Family: best home and auto bundle in Indiana

When you bundle insurance policies, you can save money on both of them. American Family received our best bundle designation in Indiana due to positive rankings of its home and auto insurance policies, premiums and discounts after bundling.

American Family has some of the lowest home insurance rates in Indiana. The company's average home insurance premium in the state is $1,608 a year, which is just $21 more than the state average and $127 less than the national average. These rates get even better with bundling. Bundling your auto and home insurance with American Family could save you up to 20% on your home insurance policy and 29% on your auto policy.

USAA: best for veterans

According to the American Legion, more than 500,000 veterans live in Indiana, making up over 7% of the state's population. USAA is our top choice for veterans in Indiana not only for its focus on members of the military and their families, but for its low rates and superior customer satisfaction.

The average USAA home insurance rate in Indiana is $1,652 a year, which is slightly higher than the state average, but still 5% under the national average. This is an excellent value for veterans when combined with the fact that USAA earned a customer satisfaction score of 882 out of 1,000 in J.D. Power's 2021 home insurance survey. The company also has a score of 0.73 in the 2020 NAIC Complaint Index, which is better than average.

USAA provides for the insurance needs of both current members and veterans of the Armed Services. It offers home insurance coverage specific to members of the military, like personal property coverage in war zones, which is usually excluded from other home insurance policies.

Home insurance perils in Indiana

Indiana homeowners face many perils common to the Midwest, like flooding and tornadoes. They can affect your home insurance rates significantly.

Flooding

Indiana's high rain levels, snow melt and amount of wetlands put it at high risk of flooding. Standard homeowners insurance doesn't cover flood damage. To protect yourself against floods, you'll need a flood insurance policy. The majority of homeowners get coverage through FEMA's National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), whose average cost of flood insurance is about $1,111 a year, or $93 a month.

Winter weather

During the winter months, temperatures in Indiana can drop to the 20s and lower. This deep cold can be a significant threat to homes. Frozen pipes are a major cause of water damage in the home, and can do thousands of dollars in damage quickly.

Snow can start falling as early as October and last until April. Heavy snow poses a threat to your roof. No one wants a collapsed roof due to snow falling from tree branches or accumulation. Roof damage caused by snow is usually covered by home insurance. However, remove snow from your roof when you can to avoid such problems in the first place.

Cold weather doesn't just pose a threat to your home. If someone slips and falls due to ice on your property, you may have a liability problem on your hands. Medical bills and legal fees due to injuries that occur on your property are covered by your home insurance, but taking steps like shoveling and de-icing your walkways can prevent such a scenario from happening at all.

Tornadoes

Even though Indiana isn't in the Midwest's Tornado Alley, this doesn't mean it's not at risk of tornadoes. According to the National Weather Service, in Indiana, there were 21 tornadoes in 2015

The majority of home insurance policies cover damage due to tornadoes. However, preventative measures such as installing storm windows and bracing your garage door can reduce the chance of tornado damage. These steps may also reduce your home insurance premium.
