Homeowners who can’t get to their policies can call their insurance companies toll-free to file a claim using a list compiled by the Insurance Information Institute.
The list can be found on the institute’s website at http://tinyurl.com/9ccexes.
The numbers from major insurers that write policies in Louisiana are:
- State Farm: (800) 732-5246
- Allstate: (800) 547-8676
- Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corp.: (888) 741-0088
- Louisiana Farm Bureau: (866) 275-7322
- Liberty Mutual Insurance: (800) 225-2467
The institute encourages people to file claims as soon as possible and noted that it may take some time to get through to some numbers because of the volume from the storm.
Flood insurance is separate from property insurance. Flood insurance policyholders who don’t know who their insurer or administrator is can contact the National Flood Insurance Program at (888) 379-9531. The only information required is your name, the state where you live and your ZIP code.
