While the COVID-19 pandemic likely hasn’t changed your coverage much, there are certain things you should be aware of when it comes to your policy. As you do your best to stave off the coronavirus, heeding stay-at-home orders etc., we have come up with some tips on how you can better protect your family with your homeowners insurance. As the expert insurance adjusters for WI and the surrounding area, we are here to help you better understand your policy and get you what you’re entitled to if something were to happen to your home or business. Here are some key items to take into consideration:
- Homeowners policies do not cover pandemic exposure, but it is important to take a look at your coverage and be aware of what it does cover in the event of an emergency. Now is also a good time to reassess both your personal property and liability coverage, especially if you’re working from home. If your home office requires specialized equipment or set up, you should find out from your insurance company about coverage for these types of situations.
- It is also recommended to take a moment to check whether or not you have enough coverage for your personal belongings; especially for high-value items like electronics or jewelry, that could require separate add-on coverage. Not sure what your policy covers? The insurance adjusters at Norcia can review your policy and help you better understand it.
- Make a home inventory. This can help you provide proof to your insurer of what you lost if you ever need to file a claim. Start by taking photographs of your belongings, log the make and model/serial number if applicable. You can also record a video to capture a number of items at once. Then, be sure to keep this records safe yet accessible in the event you need to file a claim.
- Social distancing measures are driving insurers to keep any in-person interaction to a minimum. So, depending on the company you work with, the claims process may be very different from what you’re used to. If you’ve got insurance adjusters from Norcia working on your behalf, we can speak directly with your insurance company to ensure a claim is moving along as it should.
