Filing an insurance claim after a storm

Posted: Updated:

WSIL -- Severe weather season is upon us, and we're offering some tips on filing an insurance claim after Mother Nature does her worst. These tips come to us from Country Financial.

1. You protect your property- Clean up debris and broken glass, board up broken windows and tarp or cover holes left in the roof.

2. Save receipts- Any recovery or clean up purchases made, keep a copy of the receipt.

3. Do an inventory of your property- Include age, model number, date of purchase and current purchase price for each item, if possible.

4. Document everything with photos or video- Take pictures or videos of the property after the storm and share with your agent. If you have before pictures, share those too. 

Hear more tips from Country Financial agent Natasha Stearns by watching the attached video.
