Loss Inspection

After you report your claim, your Citizens claims adjuster will contact you to schedule a property-loss inspection. At your inspection, your adjuster will:

  • Review your loss
  • Collect any necessary photos, receipts and estimates



Before Your Inspection

  • Copy and label your property damage photos.
  • Collect and copy your original temporary repair receipts.
  • Keep and protect any damaged items or parts of damaged items or equipment that may have contributed to your claim (example: toaster that caught fire and damaged your kitchen cabinets).
  • Locate your current mortgage loan number and mortgagee clause/address. This information is on your current mortgage statement, or you can call your mortgage company. This information is required and will assist Citizens in processing your loss payment check accurately and without unnecessary delay.
  • Make sure pets are in a safe place and out of the way of the adjuster.

For your safety, when the adjuster arrives to complete the loss inspection, ask for and check the adjuster’s ID.

Claim Review

Once the inspection of your property has been completed, a Citizens claims examiner will review your policy to confirm your coverage and deductibles.

If there is covered damage to your property and the amount of loss is greater than your deductible, your claims examiner will submit the claim for payment and check processing.

If your policy does not cover the specified damage to your property, Citizens will contact you to discuss this decision and will send you a written report that explains the decision in detail.
