Introducing revolutionary earthquake coverage

How We Do It

Conventional earthquake insurance is designed to cover a complete loss of your home—with high premiums and deductibles to match.

Jumpstart is different. We know that even in a large quake, most people experience minor damage. Our goal is to give you $10,000—quickly—to cover your immediate needs after the quake.

“Traditional earthquake insurance is not affordable. $10,000 would have covered my costs from the 2014 [Napa, CA] quake.”
