  7. Take photos of all damage, indoors and outdoors.
  8. Be prepared for a visit by a claims representative. Make a note of the representative's name and the claim number assigned to your case.
  9. Secure one or more detailed estimates for permanent repairs, as soon as possible.
  10. If your home is not livable, keep us or your insurance company informed of where you can be reached. Save receipts for lodging, meals, telephone, mileage and other normal living expenses.
