ATTENTION HOME OWNERS Effective June 1, 1965 - all Wind and Hail Insurance Policies for Dwelling Risk and Homeowners Will Carry a $ 50 Mandatory Deductible Clause... FOLLOWING IS A LETTER WE RECEIVED SATURDAY FROM THE IOWA INSPECTION BUREAU OF DES MOINES, IOWA: May 14, 1985 -. . , To Companies and Agonts: $50 Mandatory Wind and Hail Deductible for Dwelling Risk and Homeowners Policies Iowa Rule Book Iowa Dwelling Schedule , Homeowners Program ... ' : Elective June 1, 1965°, full coverage for windstorm and hail insurance will be eliminated for dwellings under extended coverage and for Homeowners policies. Henceforth, the $50 Windstorm and Hail Deductible contained in the form will be applicable. Insurance coverage for small maintenance-type windstorm losses has become uneconomical for both the policy holder and the insurance companies because of the frequency of the smaller losses and because of the high adjustment and processing expenses. It is felt that providing coverage only at a $50 Deductible basis will result in reduced expenses and still provide the protection needed for. more serious storm losses. Policies shall not be extended or cancelled and rewritten to avoid application of this revision. Homeowners manual pages and Iowa Dwelling Schedule pages together with interim Iowa Rule Book pages are being prepared for First Class mailing prior to June 1. Very truly yours. Glenn W.
