If you suffered damage as a result of a hurricane, you should submit a claim under any insurance policy you have that might apply. This includes:

  • Flood insurance
  • Homeowner’s insurance
  • Renter’s insurance
  • Condo insurance
  • Auto insurance

Steps for Handling Your Hurricane Insurance Claim

  1. Submit Your Claim. As soon as possible, provide a written notice of claim to your insurer according to the notice provision of your policy. Keep a copy for your records. If you don’t have a copy of your policy, call the insurance company, ask them how to submit your claim, and request a copy of your policy.
