What do I do if a property loss is sustained at my chapter?

  • Obtain temporary housing for any displaced residents. Your insurance contract should provide coverage for this cost if you purchased loss of rents and extra expense protection. Keep records and receipts of expenses for your claim.

  • Do what is reasonable and necessary to protect covered property from further damage (for example: hire contractors to board up windows, clean up standing water, put tarp over a hole in the roof, and, overall, mitigate your losses).

  • Notify your insurance agent about the loss as soon as possible. When reporting a loss, the following information is needed:
    • Insurance policy number
    • Date and time of loss
    • Type and location of loss
    • Estimated extent of damage
    • Name and number of local contact

  • If feasible, separate damaged from undamaged property and make inventory of the damaged items. Additionally, take photos of the damaged property once the facility and general area is secured and close proximity is feasible. If you have receipts for the original purchases of the damaged items, include them with the inventory list.
