How to file a Claim after a Storm

Filing your claim the proper way will help speed up the process of getting paid.  These are some basic recommendations to start your process after any storm:

  • Contact your insurance company (and agent) as soon as possible to start your claim.
  • Document your loss with pictures. We also recommend starting an inventory list and written details of the items lost and approximate values.
  • Don’t start any repairs until you know what your policy says.  Your insurance carrier may ask you to make temporary fixes, but don’t start repairs unless they tell you do it. It could impact your claim if you do.
  • Keep a claims diary that details the information the insurance company gives you, and keep a log of all expenses and receipts related to your claim.
