Does your higher percentage wind and hail deductible make you antsy?

Most companies include a higher deductible for windstorm and hail on your property insurance on the coast. This deductible is usually a percentage amount of your dwelling limit.

For example:  You have a $200,000 dwelling limit on your homeowners policy with a 3% wind and hail deductible, your actual deductible is $6,000.

Why not open a “Catastrophe Savings Account”?  This account allows you to set money aside, state income tax-free, to pay for qualified catastrophic events.  The amount you contribute can also be deducted from your state incomes tax return.  Sounds great, right?
