Best home insurance in companies in Wyoming

We chose the best Wyoming homeowners insurance companies by analyzing how each company performed with independent rating companies such as J.D. Power & Associates, which evaluates customer satisfaction, and AM Best, which analyzes a company’s financial stability. We also looked at such things as cost, add-ons and discount options.

Home insurance company Average annual premium for $250K in dwelling coverage J.D. Power score
Allstate $1,703 882/1,000
Nationwide $911 892/1,000
State Farm $1,295 880/1,000
USAA $667 905/1,000

Allstate

Allstate received an above-average score from J.D. Power, which means its customer service and satisfaction is about what you would expect with a large scale insurance provider. However, Allstate shines with its discounts and add-on options like identity theft restoration to help pay for legal fees and lost wages if your identity is stolen, electronic data recovery to restore lost files like photos and videos, sports equipment for expensive sports items like golf clubs. There is even yard and garden coverage to increase the financial protection for things like trees and gardening equipment.

Nationwide

Nationwide began selling insurance for farms and cars in 1926. It is now a leading insurance provider. As a large home insurer, Nationwide offers coverage for all types of situations including standard coverage options and unique options such as earthquake insurance in certain areas, credit card coverage and ordinance or law insurance to help pay if it will cost more to get your home to current building codes during a repair or rebuild. Homeowners may further save on Nationwide home insurance by applying any of its long list of discounts like Multi-policy, home purchase, roof ratings and more.

State Farm

State Farm gets the highest marks possible from AM Best. This means it is likely to be able to pay claims efficiently and reliably if a disaster happens. State Farm offers some discounts that you can see if you are qualified for to save money. These include having eligible home alert protection devices and certain approved roofing materials.

USAA

USAA is for military personnel, retired service members and eligible military family members. This provider is known for excellent customer service and dedication to military-specific needs. It also has some helpful options such as earthquake coverage in certain areas, home sharing coverage if you use your home on a service like AirBnB and identify theft coverage. It doesn’t have a wide range of discounts, but the rates are often among the lowest for people who are eligible.

How much is homeowners insurance in Wyoming?

Homeowners can expect to pay a little less for home insurance in Wyoming. The average cost of homeowners insurance in Wyoming is $805. Compared to the national average of $1,312 for home insurance, Wyoming is about $500 cheaper. However, this can be more or less, depending on your area code, type of home you have and your background.

Wyoming may be cheaper compared to other states in home insurance because it is not a coastal state that experiences a lot of weather-related hazards like hurricanes. Additionally, the average crime rate is quite low, with Wyoming reporting less concerns about safety than most of the country.

Home insurance in Wyoming

Based on the geographical factors of Wyoming, there are multiple causes of loss in home insurance. Although Wyoming is generally a safe state, it is prone to heavy snow falls at about 60 to 70 inches annually, in the lower elevated areas.

Common causes of loss in Wyoming

Wyoming is one of the most beautiful states in the country, but it does come with a cost as it is host to numerous natural disasters each year. Located in the Northwestern region of the U.S., Wyoming is prone to heavy snow falls which can cause flooding. It is also prone to the following natural disasters:

  • Flooding: Much of Wyoming is subject to floods. That means many claims each year revolve around water damage from severe storms or melting ice and snow.
  • Earthquakes: Wyoming also has a lot of earthquakes each year because of numerous fault lines in the state. On average, the state gets about 2,500 tremors each year. Some of them are severe.
  • Wildfires: Wyoming averages about 700 wildfires each year. Though the state gets a lot of rainfall, it does undergo periods of drought as well. It is one reason why wildfires are so constant.
  • Tornadoes and severe storms: Wyoming does not get much in regards to hurricanes, but it does get about 19 tornadoes each year. There are also numerous winter, spring and summer severe storms. In fact, Wyoming averages about 99 days a year of precipitation.
  • Sinkholes and landslides: Lastly, Wyoming is also subject to sinkholes and landslides because of its unique geology. Much of the state is quite hilly and there are a lot of fault lines throughout. That makes it a state that is constantly in a state of change.

Home insurance coverage options in Wyoming

As a homeowner in Wyoming, you may want to consider protecting your home from some of the weather related damages above, as some of these perils are not automatically covered in a standard homeowner policy. While you should consider your personal situation when choosing the right coverage for your needs, these are coverage options that are generally recommended by some insurance experts to protect yourself from common hazards in the state:

  • Flood insurance: Flood insurance is offered through the U.S. government via the National Flood Insurance Program. The federal government determines coverages and rating criteria, but the policies are sold through private insurance companies.
  • Earthquake insurance: In some high-risk areas, earthquake insurance may have to be purchased as a separate policy; however, many homeowners insurance companies also offer it as an endorsement that can be added to your home policy. Considering that most of Wyoming is on one fault line or another, many customers choose to purchase this coverage.
  • Sinkhole insurance: Similar to earthquake insurance, sinkhole insurance may be purchased as a stand-alone policy or as an endorsement/ add-on that you can add to an existing policy. Sinkholes occur randomly throughout much of Wyoming, and this coverage can vary widely depending on where you live and the insurance company you choose, so if this coverage is important to you, you should examine your policy closely.
  • Increased other structures: Other structures’ coverage is automatically included in a standard homeowner’s policy, usually at 10% limit of the dwelling amount. However, if you have a shed, garage, greenhouse, barn or even some nice fencing valued greater than your policy limit, you may consider increasing this coverage. Any wildfire that might damage your home may also damage other buildings or structures you have on your property.
