How To Use

This review list is provided to inform you about this document in question and assist you in its preparation. Use this document to transmit your claim to your insurance agency. Be complete; add any necessary and useful exhibits. The more thorough you are the more apt you are to be believed and get prompt payment.

  1. Make multiple copies. Give one set to the insurance agency. Keep a backup set (agencies are notorious for losing or misplacing paperwork). Keep one set with the transaction file.

  2. Remember that getting paid on a claim is a sales situation. If they are “sold” on your credibility, they will generally pay promptly. If not sold, it can be a long and ugly process. As we have said before, you have one chance to make a good first impression. Do your homework; get a complete and thorough file together; send it to them promptly. All of this will increase the odds of a satisfactory result in your favor.
