When claim payments become essential lifelines
Utah is well-known for its skiing and other outdoor winter sports. But when one woman’s mountainside home was severely vandalized in mid-November, with 22 windows completely broken out, it left her family exposed to the region’s harsh winds and cold temperatures. She filed an insurance claim, but it took the adjustor 165 days to mail the first reimbursement check, which only covered 10% of the total repair costs. It took another 75 days to mail a check for final payment. Then, because she had a mortgage, she waited another 35 days for the bank to co-sign the check.
Waiting 275-days for the funds she needed to rebuild her life was much more than an inconvenience, and it highlights the importance of finding better, faster ways to get payments into policyholders’ hands quickly when they need them most.
