Need to make a claim?

Don’t worry – we’re here to help. Follow these steps to ensure a smooth claims process.

1. Gather information

Collect your essential information, including your policy number, insurer’s name, and agent’s contact. Be ready to describe the incident type, damage or loss, how it occurred, any witness, and any additional documentation or photos if available.

2. File your claim

To file a claim, contact your insurer and provide your policy number. The claims adjuster may request more information or documents, and some insurers offer online claim forms for quick submission.

3. Review and negotiate the claim

Once you file your claim, the insurer will respond within ten business days. If approved, expect a settlement offer that may be lower than anticipated. If denied, they’ll provide a reason, and you can appeal with legal guidance. Keep all related documents for future reference, and if your claim is approved, move forward accordingly.

4. Get the payment

After settling, expect a payment from the insurance company. For inquiries or claim status updates, contact your insurer or broker. In exceptional cases, like catastrophes, the process may extend up to 12 months, but you can still inquire about your claim’s status.
