What’s the difference between actual cash value and replacement cost coverage?

You can choose either actual cash value or replacement cost coverage under home insurance for your personal belongings. Cash value coverage gives you a payout for what an item was worth before the claim, not what it would cost to replace. On the other hand, replacement coverage pays the amount it would cost to fully replace.
