Many insurance companies have special toll-free numbers for catastrophes that operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week and provide those numbers on their websites. The Bureau also can provide assistance to consumers who have difficulty getting through to their insurance company or agent.
Virginia Insurance Commissioner Scott A. White suggests taking pictures of damaged property, saving receipts for repair costs, and protecting your property from further damage. Additional information may be found on the Bureau’s disaster readiness page at https://bit.ly/3gyPYlx. The Bureau also offers disaster guides for Virginia homeowners and businesses that answer the most commonly-asked questions about settling disaster-related insurance problems. They are available on the Bureau’s website at https://bit.ly/2XuGCzS (homeowners) and https://bit.ly/2PqBxnJ (commercial property).
The Bureau’s specially trained staff stands ready to handle inquiries through its toll-free telephone number 1-877-310-6560 or by email at BureauofInsurance@scc.virginia.gov. Consumers may reach the Consumer Services Section of the Bureau’s Property and Casualty Division directly by calling (804) 371-9185.
