If your home has suffered storm damage and you have a homeowners or flood insurance policy, these guidelines may be helpful in filing your insurance claim.
Call your agent or insurance company. Have the following information with you when you place your call: (1) the name of your insurance company (your agent may write policies for more than one company); (2) your policy number; and (3) a telephone number or email address where you can be reached.
When you file your claim, ask for an approximate time frame during which an adjuster can be expected to visit your home so you can plan accordingly.
Once You Have Reported Your Loss
An adjuster will work with you to calculate the value of the damage and prepare a repair estimate.
Please keep your agent advised if your contact information changes. If you are still in a shelter or cannot be easily reached, please provide the name of a designated relative or point of contact who can reach you.
Before the Adjuster Arrives
Local officials may require the disposal of damaged items. If you dispose of items, keep a swatch or other sample of damaged items for the adjuster.
Separate damaged items from undamaged items. If necessary, place damaged items outside the home.
Take photographs. Take photos of any water in the house and any damaged personal property. Your adjuster will need evidence of the damage and damaged items, such as swatches from carpeting, curtains, and chairs, to prepare your repair estimate.
Make a list of damaged or lost items and include their age and value when possible. If possible, have receipts for all items available for the adjuster.
If you have damage estimates prepared by a contractor, provide them to your adjuster since they will be considered in the preparation of your repair estimate.
Contact your insurance company if an adjuster has not been assigned to you within the expected time frame.
For general flood insurance questions, call 1-800-427-4661 or contact your insurance company or insurance agent. To obtain a policy, contact your agent or call 1-800-427-2419 to find an agent near you.
