How to Prepare for Hurricane Matthew

Print out copies of all of your insurance policies and store with your emergency kit.

Write down the telephone number for your Insurance Carrier’s claim department and the telephone number of your insurance agent. Keep numbers alongside your policies in your emergency kit.

Report a Claim

In the event that you experience a loss follow the reporting steps below.
  1. Take pictures and videos of building and content damage before making any emergency repairs.
  2. Write down the extent of damage to your property. Include as much detail as possible when describing the damage to your property and what caused the damage.
  3. Report your claim to your Insurance Carrier or your Insurance Agent.
  4. Make any emergency repairs necessary to prevent further damage and to protect undamaged property.
  5. Preserve damaged property. Do not throw it away. The insurance adjuster needs to see the damaged property.
  6. Keep an accurate list of any additional living expenses that you incur due to the claim and for the duration of the claim process.
  7. Maintain an accurate list of any supplies that you purchased to perform emergency repairs.
  8. Notify your insurance carrier or insurance agent if you have to vacate your residence for an extended period due to a covered claim and include any additional contact information.
