Renters - How do I file a claim for renters insurance?
Updated 16 hours ago | Frequently Asked Questions
To file a renters insurance claim, you will want to contact the underwriter on your policy, Markel, at 800-236-3113. This will be considered your "First Notice of Loss" and you will be contacted by a claims adjuster within 2-3 business days to review your claim.
Here are some things you will need:
- Be sure to have your policy number handy! This begins with RTH80-- and can be found in your online account.
- You need some kind of proof that you owned the item. This can be done by receipts, bank statements, photographs, or serial numbers!
- If this was a theft, you will need to obtain a police report by either local or campus police.
In the end, the typical turnaround is 1-2 weeks from the time you give your First Notice of Loss until a replacement has made its way into your hands.
You can also file your First Notice of Loss documentation within your online account at account.gradguard.com
