Claims Information

Our office is ready 24/7/365 to assist you with claims questions and processing. Our contact information is at the bottom of this page. Please note that during an active storm and briefly after, response times may be slightly delayed. Do what is needed to protect life and property in the interim.

Proactively take an inventory of your property. Video and photographic evidence are best.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. 

  1. Safety is paramount! Do not risk personal safety to protect property
  2. If risk exists, notify emergency personnel by calling 9-1-1
  3. Take photos of the damage
  4. Take whatever steps you can to prevent further damage. Make sure it is safe to make the temporary repairs and you are not risking injury to yourself or your family and friends or risking further damage. 
  5. Call in professionals as needed
  6. Remember to keep all your receipts for any temporary repairs you make. Also retain receipts for living expenses as a result of the loss to your residence. Try not to pay cash for anything, use methods of payments that can be documented (check or credit card). If you have to pay cash, get a very good receipt and document as much as possible.
  7. While tempted to clean up as much as possible, especially after a hurricane, do not throw away household belongings such as furniture or any personal items until these items have been inspected by a claims representative.
  8. In the event of a natural disaster or catastrophe, such as a hurricane, the number of claims being made by victims will be significant and everyone will be trying to call at the same time. You may experience delays in connecting with representatives. ALLOW FOR 48 HOURS FOR A CLAIMS ADJUSTER TO CONTACT YOU! 
  9. Unless filing a larger claim, we discourage filing claims for freezer contents and fallen trees not damaging a structure. There is likely limited coverage on most homeowners policies for these items. However, the impact on future rating would exceed claim benefit unless part of a larger claim.
