How to Report a Claim
We know that filing a claim isn't something you look forward to doing.
But when the unexpected happens, you can count on us to help you get your life back on track.
If the time comes to file a claim, you have options.
The fastest way to file your claim is through My Account, online.
Or, you can start the process straight from your mobile device on the MyAmFam App.
This allows you to communicate by email and text and easily check your claim status.
You can also report your claim to your agent.
Call our 24-hour claims line at 1-800-MYAMFAM or file a claim online at amfam.com.
If your claim is a result of wind or hail damage, you can even text STORM to AMFAM to file your claim.
Before you start the process to file a claim, it's helpful to have the following information available.
Your name, address and phone number, insurance policy number, date and time of your loss, description of what happened, and insurance and contact information of others involved.
Once your claim is filed, the process begins to accurately assess your claim.
As always, our goal is to complete this process as quickly as possible.
An adjuster might be sent for things like an appraisal of the damage, estimating repairs and connecting with health care provider if you’ve been injured.
At any point, you may be asked to provide photos, invoices, receipts or warranties to determine the value of your loss.
We may even work with you to arrange repairs, get a car rental, and find contractors to help you get your life back to normal as quickly as possible.
The final step is settling your claim, which is when your insurance company pays you the amount outstanding minus your deductible.
American Family Insurance is always here and ready to help you.
Check the status of your claim through My Account or call us any time at 1-800-MYAMFAM.
