Deliver to Adjuster

Give your photos and inventory worksheet to the adjuster as soon as possible.

When the adjuster arrives for the inspection, walk through the damaged areas with them and have the adjuster give you an idea of items to be repaired and/or replaced in the building. Ask the adjuster for an advance payment on your loss.

Your flood insurance policy requires you to complete a proof of loss and document your claim within 60 days from the date of loss. Please make sure you do not exceed this 60-day condition of your policy, or your loss may be denied.
