Steps in Filing a Home Insurance Claim
In general, the claim process unfolds in this order:

- Contact your insurance company – Calling your insurance agent is crucial to start the claims process after a disaster or theft. The sooner you initiate the process, the better the outcome may be for having a quick claim.
- Immediate repair – Repair your home for temporary use, if possible, and keep records such as materials receipts to provide to your insurance company.
- Document – Record and list damages and valuables that are missing if a theft has occurred. Being as thorough as possible and adding estimated values can help increase your claim.
