Affected customers can file a claim online at https://www.farmers.com/claims/, using the Farmers® app through their smartphone or tablet, or by calling their agent or the 24-hour claims center:

  • Farmers Claims Contact Center number: 1-800-435-7764.

Immediately following a storm, Farmers Insurance recommends the following actions when safe:

  • Walk around the home inside and out to identify potential damage
  • Take photographs of any damage noted to the property
  • Make emergency repairs or temporary emergency repairs as needed to prevent further damage, if you are unable to do so yourself, you may want to consider hiring a professional
  • Do not forget to check your landscaping
  • Talk to your Farmers agent if you have questions regarding damage and the claims process
