The Insurance Information Institute offers the following tips for navigating the process after a tornado:
1. Contact your insurer to get the claims process started. Insurers can be contacted via their toll-free number, app or website.
2. Take photos of any damage. A photographic record is useful when making insurance claims.
3. Make a detailed list of all damaged or destroyed personal property. If you have a home inventory, it will be extremely useful. Don’t throw out damaged property until you have met with an adjuster.
4. Discuss coverage for temporary housing with your insurer. Your insurance can help you move out of shelters and obtain housing while you rebuild. Keep your hotel and meal receipts.
5. Work with an adjuster. Adjusters will walk you through the claims process, answer questions, estimate damage, and settle your claim.
