A Liberty Mutual homeowners insurance policy covers your home and possessions from damage or loss caused by covered risks, such as fire, frozen pipes, water damage, wind/hail damage (including from hurricanes), and theft. Homeowners insurance from Liberty Mutual also has liability coverage for injury/property damage to others, and covers your living expenses if your home is being repaired and you can’t stay there.

The standard renters insurance policy protects your personal property, covers additional living expenses if your rental needs work, and pays legal and medical bills in case someone gets hurt on the property you’re renting.

Liberty Mutual offers auto insurance policies for drivers in every situation, from safe drivers with lots of experience to new drivers and customers with a less-than-stellar driving record.

In addition to auto insurance policies, Liberty Mutual provides small business, property and life insurance policies, as well as coverage options for tuition costs, critical illness and identity theft.
