Who We Are
California Earthquake Authority (CEA) is one of the world's largest providers of residential earthquake insurance. We encourage California homeowners and renters to reduce their risk of earthquake damage and loss through education, mitigation, and insurance policies that help repair and rebuild damaged homes, and replace valuables and personal belongings.
- Not for profit
- Privately funded
- Publicly managed
- Not tied to the state budget
What's more, CEA is financially strong, with total claim-paying ability exceeding $13 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.
A word from our CEO, Glenn Pomeroy
"I'm proud of CEA's unique public, not-for-profit mission. Our goal is to make earthquake insurance as affordable as possible for all California residents, while helping to reduce their risk of earthquake loss wherever they live.
We know it is a matter of when, not if, the next damaging earthquake will strike, and CEA would like to help you get ready."
