insurance claim help from a nonprofit
posted over 4 years ago by uphelp from United Policyholders
United Policyholders is a non-profit organization that is a voice and an information resource for insurance consumers in all 50 states. We have helped guide disaster survivors on the road to recovery for over twenty years.
Here is a checklist to help keep you on track during this stressful time:
- Take care of your family’s needs first.
- Housing is a priority – talk to your insurance company about the housing expense allowance.
- Keep a diary of who you talked to, the number you called, date and time, what was said. Keep all of your paperwork organized and together.
- Take photos of your property before any cleanup or debris removal.
- Get a complete and current copy of your insurance policy.
- Ask for a cash advance for Additional Living Expenses (ALE).
- Do not rush into signing contracts and avoid making major financial decisions in the first few weeks.
- Check references carefully before hiring any vendor or professional.
- Use the free help and resources that are available at: www.uphelp.org/bolesfire
