Phone-only Protection Plan Limits:
If you have a phone-only protection plan ($6-$12/mo), the limit of protection is capped at the replacement cost value of your phone at the time of your claim for each claim you file. But there is no limit on how many claims you may file or any lifetime limit that AKKO will pay out!
This means that no matter what, you will always be covered to get an exact replacement of your phone (down to the same make, model, color, technical specs, and carrier) anytime the device is damaged or stolen, no matter how many times it may be. There is no limit on the number of claims you may file and our plans are a subscription, so there is no "term length" (unlike a warranty which may be 1-3yrs). So your phone can be covered forever!
"Everything Protected" AKKO Plan Limits:
For our "Everything Protected" AKKO Plans ($15/month for adults, $12 for students) there is a protection limit of $2,000 PER INCIDENT** for any item. There are no annual protection limits or a limit on the number of claims you may file. Additionally, all protection is still based on replacement cost value of your damaged/stolen items determined at the time of the claim. This means that if your laptop is stolen and costs $1,200 to replace at the time of the claim, you'll be reimbursed $1,200 (plus any applicable sales tax or shipping) less your deductible. You would not be reimbursed $2,000.
**$2,000 of protection PER INCIDENT means that if next week on Monday your laptop is stolen, up to the replacement value of your laptop is covered as long as that amount is less than $2,000.
If at another point in the same year you drop your tablet and the screen is smashed, up to the repair or replacement value cost of the tablet is covered as well as long as it’s less than $2,000.
But, there is not an annual limit of $2,000 which would be exhausted in case replacing your laptop cost $1,800 and replacing your tablet had cost $500.
This demonstrates PER INCIDENT protection and the per incident limit with an AKKO Plan is $2,000. There is not an annual limit.
HOWEVER, if during a single incident someone steals your entire backpack, filled with your laptop, and tablet, up to $2,000 total is covered to replace those items and any other contents of your backpack, plus the backpack itself. So if the combined replacement cost was above $2,000 for all these items, you would only have coverage up to $2,000 to be reimbursed.
Higher PER INCIDENT protection limits are available!
Once you’re registered, you can upgrade your plan to a PER INCIDENT limit as high as $10,000. But for a more common $3,000 – $5,000 PER INCIDENT protection limit upgrade, it’s only a few more dollars per month 🙂
The $2,000 of PER INCIDENT protection is more than enough for the majority of users based on our studies and the claims rates of currently protected AKKO users nationwide. But for those with more expensive items like a high-end laptop, or specialty gear like photography or music/audio equipment, the option to upgrade your limit is easily available. Simply contact us via the “billing” section of your account and we can upgrade your limit.
