True Cost Calculator

The True Cost Calculator shows how assessments can affect Citizens and non-Citizens premiums following a catastrophic storm or series of storms.*

Citizens knows cost is an important part of your insurance decisions. That is why we want you to know the true cost of a Citizens policy. Citizens policyholders can be assessed up to 45 percent of their total premium if Citizens needs additional funds to pay claims following a major disaster. Non-Citizens policyholders can be assessed at a much lower (2 percent) rate.

*The True Cost Calculator does not include Citizens Emergency Assessments, which can be levied over a period of multiple years at the same rate for both Citizens and non-Citizens policyholders. The True Cost Calculator also does not include additional mandated charges and assessments, such as the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund (FHCF) and the Florida Insurance Guaranty Association (FIGA).
