How our claims process works 

A Nationwide claims representative will contact you to:

Minor claims may be handled over the phone and payment issued immediately. Otherwise, a Nationwide representative may inspect your property and give you a damage estimate.

In some cases, you may receive payment for repairs immediately after the inspection.

Any payment is based on the coverage you’ve purchased and the severity of the damage, minus any deductible you’re responsible for paying.

Choosing a contractor for repairs

You may select one from our On Your Side® Property Repair Network or arrange for a contractor on your own.

If you choose your own contractor, make sure they’ve operated in the area for several years, are licensed and insured and will give you a written guarantee.

If it’s your home that has been damaged and is unlivable while it’s being repaired, we may help cover your living expenses.
