Home Insurance Claims

Knowing what's next helps. Really.

We pride ourselves on taking really good care of our customers who have just had some kind of problem that requires filing a claim. But we recognize that part of feeling in control is knowing what to expect — and in what order. So here is an explanation of the steps to filing a claim and getting your home back together and feeling welcoming again.

The quick overview:

  1. Report your claim by calling 800.342.5342 any day, any time
  2. Talk with the adjuster by phone to describe the incident
  3. Have the loss appraised
  4. Receive your settlement check (in most cases, less the deductible)
  5. Get the damage fixed
  6. Have your home re-inspected afterwards, if requested

If you have a mortgage, the settlement check must be jointly issued to you and your mortgage holder.
