Everything You Need To Know About Making a Hurricane or Flood Claim

  • You should check your policy for reporting requirements – it is not always your insurance agent – and be sure all interested insurers are notified.
  • Notify your insurance provider promptly (not immediately). 
  • For Flood, proof of loss is due within 60 days of loss (not reporting).
  • Flood is covered by NFIP, not our insurance company.
  • Verbally make the claim with general information. You are not an expert and nothing requires you to email or fill out forms.
  • Access the entire property before the insurance company inspects.
  • Always make your property available for inspection.
  • For hurricanes, check Duties in the Event of a Loss or Damage.

Describe & Document

  • Document your loss by taking numerous photos and videos of all affected and damaged areas and personal property. 
  • Take videos and photos from different angles. Do not include commentary in the video.
  • Describe your damage very simply e.g. water damage.
  • Avoid using words that could prejudice your claim recovery.
  • Take notes and create an incident report of what occurred before vendors arrive. 
  • Keep an orderly accounting of expenses and hourlies.
  • Prove your damages, not coverage.
  • Develop a chain of custody for your insurance company by retaining receipts, information, etc.
