Can you tell me why claims can be denied?

Legitimate home insurance claims are usually processed, but denials can happen for many reasons. Missing a claim filing deadline, not being covered for the peril that caused the damage, or having the damage stem from neglect are the most common reasons for denial. When you have a claim, do not wait. Get in touch with your agent right away. They can walk you through the claim process so that things will be processed as smoothly as possible.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
