Insurance Policy and Responsibilities After a Disaster

Chaos often strikes unexpectedly. After a disaster, it can be challenging to ascertain what needs to be done and how to prioritize, especially if you weren’t prepared. 

 One of the first things you’ll need to address is your insurance policy to determine what damage is covered and your responsibilities. While this may not sound too difficult, it’s an entirely different matter when you factor in the added elements of stress and grief in the wake of devastation. 

 To make this process a little smoother, here are some of the critical things you’ll want to focus on as you navigate your policy:

Evaluate the Damage After A Disaster

Before you look at your policy, it’s helpful to evaluate the type and extent of the damage you’re looking for. You don’t have to be an expert on these matters, but any details you can provide your insurance company will help the process move smoothly. For example, what did your area experience? A hurricane? What category? Walk around the property and take notes and pictures first to get an idea of what you’re dealing with in advance.

Find Out What’s Covered

After all, the damage has been thoroughly assessed, it’s time to turn to your policy to find out what your insurance will cover before submitting a claim. 

 Some other important things you’ll need to know in the immediate aftermath are: 

 Does your policy reimburse you for temporary living expenses?

 Answering these questions first can make things a little easier later on. 

File Your Claim Quickly

In the event that you will be filing a claim, it’s essential to contact your insurance company as quickly as possible. Especially in a natural disaster, where multiple people are likely to be affected, you’ll want to get your claim in promptly.
