Understanding Your Declarations Page

Your insurance declaration page is a key document of your policy. Also known as the dec page, it summarizes the information essential to your coverage. Information includes your name and address, descriptions of the insured property and your premium. It also outlines your policy's coverages, limits, deductibles and discounts.

Here’s a quick snapshot of what to look for, and where:

General policy info. Your policy number will appear at the top of the page. Under the policy number you’ll see the policyholder/named insured and the policy effective dates.

Insured property. Moving down you’ll find the insured property info. For example, an auto policy declaration page will include your vehicle information — make, model, year and vehicle identification number.

Coverages, limits and discounts. The bulk of info in the middle of the page will highlight your coverages, limits and deductibles. You’ll also see the premium, or cost, associated with each level of coverage. Your total premium will show towards the bottom of your coverage listing. Any discounts will also appear after your coverage listing.

Agent contact info. And at the very bottom of your page you’ll find your American Family Insurance agent’s contact info — so you can call with any questions!
