follows the same basic five-step process to see every claim through from
start to finish:
receive your claim, it will be assigned to a claims professional.
Depending on the complexity of your claim, you may work with a team of
claims representatives, each of whom has experience handling a
particular aspect of your claim.
professional will contact you to get the facts surrounding your loss, talk
to you about your coverage, explain how your claim will be handled,
identify ways to protect your property from further damage (for example,
putting a tarp over a damaged roof or plastic sheeting on a broken car
window), and schedules an in-person appointment if one is needed.
Your claims professional will
determine whether the loss is covered, will gather the facts, inspect
and document damage, interview witnesses or other involved individuals,
take photos and samples (if needed), and evaluate your claim.
We will work with you to resolve
your claim fairly either by paying what you're owed, or explaining why
there would be no payment on your claim.

under the terms of your policy, we close the claim. If you discover
additional expenses, we will re-open your claim to investigate.
