Proof of Loss Deadline Looms: What You Need to Know

August Calendar

If your insurance company didn’t pay you enough to rebuild, you still have options—but time is quickly running out. To receive an additional insurance payment for your property loss, it is vital you file a complete Proof of Loss within a year of your initial claim.

Without an accurate Proof of Loss, you will not be able to collect any additional money for your flood-damaged home or business. For most people, this one-year deadline is on or around August 25, 2018. Your last opportunity to submit is right around the corner.

Policyholders Must Complete a Proof of Loss for Additional Insurance Payments

After Hurricane Harvey, you have suffered unimaginable losses and have dealt with immense emotional grief. Don’t miss your last opportunity to obtain payment to rebuild. To help with the process, here’s what you need to know about the Proof of Loss.

What You Need to Include in a Proof of Loss

  • A fully-completed FEMA Proof of Loss form
  • Complete, accurate documentation supporting your claim
  • Detailed estimates of damage sustained (contractor estimates are insufficient)

Keep in mind that it is the policy holder’s responsibility to correctly fill out the Proof of Loss and submit all supporting documentation to the insurance company.

Is Filling Out a Proof of Loss on Your Own Too Complicated?

FEMA has strict requirements surrounding the Proof of Loss form and supporting documentation. With the deadline for submission around the corner, there’s no room for mistakes. This is the last chance for policyholders to recover compensation to rebuild and move forward.

Why Should You Turn to an Experienced Lawyer to Help File Proof of Loss?

Accurately completing a Proof of Loss on your own—especially under a looming deadline—can be overwhelming. An experienced flood insurance lawyer understands FEMA’s strict Proof of Loss requirements and can help ensure your claim is completed correctly.
