Frequently asked questions

Every claim is unique, and there are a lot of different things that could affect how long it takes to resolve your claim. Keep in mind that even though filing a claim is probably a rare event for you, our claims teams are made up of experienced professionals who work with issues similar to yours day in and day out. They'll always do their best to get your claim resolved efficiently.

Your deductible is the amount you've agreed to pay out of your pocket before Allstate pays for any covered losses. Here's an example. Say you have $2,000 worth of covered damage, and you picked a $500 deductible, applicable to that coverage, when you bought the policy. That means you pay $500, and your auto insurance pays the rest. In cases, where you are not at fault your deductible may be waived.

The decision whether to repair or declare a vehicle a total loss is based on the type and the extent of damage, age of the vehicle and other factors. In order to make a decision, we will have to inspect your vehicle. If the repair estimate is more than the vehicle's worth, we will pay the actual cash value of the vehicle, up to the limits of the policy – a deductible may also apply.

If you're working with a priority repair option repair shop recommended by Allstate, then the process would be seamless. The shop would work directly with Allstate to address the additional damages. Should that not be the case, the shop should contact the appropriate Allstate Insurance Claim Advisor to discuss any additional loss-related damage.

Every policyholder's situation is unique, so depending on your circumstances, your premium may be affected. If you are concerned, don't hesitate to discuss this with your agent. You may also want to ask them about other Allstate auto products that include things like an accident forgiveness feature which may help prevent your rates from going up just because of an accident, even if it's your fault.

Please note that not all policies are equal. It’s important to check your coverage and limits first. In most cases, your home insurance policy will cover damage caused by perils such as wind or rainstorm including:

• Losses caused by flying debris or fallen trees and/or branches.

• Losses to your home and contents from water entering through openings suddenly caused by wind

• Damage to vehicles from wind or water (if you have comprehensive coverage as part of your policy).

When it is safe to do so, take these steps to begin the insurance claims process, and always check your policy limits:
  • Assess any damage, and if possible, assemble proofs of purchase, photos, and receipts.
  • Keep damaged items unless they pose a health hazard.
  • Keep notes and be as detailed as possible when documenting damage and providing information. Keep all receipts related to cleanup.
  • If your home is uninhabitable due to a covered loss, the additional living expense coverage will consider increased costs you incur if you’re temporarily unable to   live at home. Retain all receipts such as hotel bills, and restaurant meals.

Typically, in the event of a power outage, your insurance policy covers the contents up to a specified amount. Please check with your agent for what perils your policy covers and if it covers damage to spoiled food.

Your freezer and their contents may be covered (up to a specified limit) for damage related to food spoilage caused by an accidental power interruption, or as the result of a covered peril like a tree falling on your home’s roof and severing your power line.
