What's more, CEA is financially strong, with total claim-paying ability exceeding $12 billion. CEA policies are sold and serviced by our participating insurance companies (PIs). To learn more about the earthquake policies we offer and how to buy, contact your residential insurance agent or one of our PIs.


The CEA is offering the CEA BB retrofit program in select ZIP Codes in high seismic risk areas to select policyholders because: 

  • CEA is committed to making California communities safer, more resilient and able to recover following a damaging earthquake; 

  • It makes sound financial sense for CEA and for CEA Policyholders; and 

  • It provides CEA Policyholders with an opportunity to receive up to a 25 percent discount (after July 1, 2019) on their CEA earthquake insurance policy premium.
