The average cost of homeowners insurance in Indiana is $2,643 a year, or $220 a month.

The actual price you pay depends on factors such as:

  • The amount of coverage you need
  • Where you lived
  • Your credit and insurance history
  • Any discounts you may be eligible to receive

You can often save money by shopping around because each home insurance company weighs these factors differently.

For a new mortgage, lenders typically require you to insure your home at its replacement value, or the estimated cost of rebuilding it.

You can insure your home for a lower amount if you have a low loan balance or if you own your home outright. But this puts you at risk of not getting enough insurance money to rebuild after a disaster.

Most insurance companies use a software program to estimate your home’s replacement value, based on its specifications. Make sure that the information the insurance company has about your home is accurate.

The average price of flood insurance in Indiana is $895 a year, or $75 a month, for policies from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

Standard home insurance does not cover flood damage.

If you have a mortgage in a high-risk flood zone, your lender will usually insist you get flood insurance. Flood insurance is often also worth considering if you own your home outright, or even in a low- or moderate-risk area.

Most flood insurance is purchased through the NFIP, which is managed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). However, several private companies also offer flood insurance in Indiana.


The rates shown in this article are based on an analysis of non-binding quotes obtained from Quadrant Information Services for homes in every ZIP code in Indiana. Unless otherwise noted, standard home insurance policies include:

  • Personal property: $200,000

Standard home insurance costs an average of $2,643 a year in Indiana and covers most damage from tornadoes. Wind and hail are among the normal perils that home insurance covers.

However, home insurance does not cover flooding that may accompany a tornado.

Insurance companies typically require you to insure your home at 80% of its estimated replacement value to receive a full payment for covered repairs.

If you insure your home for less than this amount, your insurance company may reduce your claims payment.
