What are Policy Declarations?

A policy declarations page will define essential information about your pet insurance plan’s coverage, limits, deductibles, any discounts, and the policy term. Your policy declaration page will also include information about your pet, such as their breed, age, and name. Any applied discounts should also be listed in your policy declarations.

How Policy Declarations Work

Some pet insurance providers will require that the insured pet resides at the residence address provided on the declarations page. If you move or ownership changes occur, it’s vital that you reach out to your pet insurance provider to have this information updated in your policy declarations.

Key Takeaways

  • Your policy declaration will break down the type of coverage you have, along with limits, exclusions, and deductibles.
  • Periodically check to ensure that your information, such as your place of residence, is accurate on your policy declarations page to keep things up to date and active.
