Expert review

If you’re looking for a regional company offering basic insurance coverage, United could be a great fit. The more traditional take and long-term experience may appeal to you, but if you want a company with a better online footprint and more options, shop around to find the best policy for you.

United offers the following home insurance coverage in the five states where they operate:

  • Homeowners. Covers the structural repairs or rebuilding of your home due to loss or damage caused by a covered event, which includes fire, hail and windstorm, among other select events. This coverage also includes personal property coverage.
  • Dwelling fire. A less comprehensive dwelling policy ideal for rentals, seasonal properties and lower-value homes.
  • Earthquake. This optional endorsement includes an earthquake as a covered event for the United homeowner’s policy.

What home insurance discounts can I get?

United doesn’t advertise discounts online. To find a complete list of discounts on offer, contact an agent. The only discounts referenced on their website include:

  • New home. If your home is less than 10 years old, you qualify for a discount.
  • Bundling discount. Bundle your home insurance with an auto policy and you can save.

Pros and cons of United home insurance

Pros

  • Financially stable. United has been offering insurance for over 100 years and is completely transparent about its financial stats by providing quarterly reports on its website.
  • Back to basics. Its more basic offerings and agent focus will appeal to clients who don’t want to wade through lists of discounts or add-ons on their own.
  • Bundled policies. United allows you to bundle your home and farm policies as well as your home, auto and rental policies for convenience and savings.

Cons

  • Limited regions. United only operates in five states: Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Oklahoma and Tennessee.
  • Limited information. United’s more traditional approach makes it hard to find its policy details or prices without contacting an agent.

How to apply for United home insurance

United doesn’t offer online quotes or applications. To apply for a policy, you have to contact a local agent.

  1. From the home page, click Find an Agent.
  2. Enter your address and a travel radius and the map will show the United agents available near you.
  3. Select an agent and use the contact info provided to make the call.
