Homeowners insurance claims and mortgage companies
AAA is here to help you through the home claims process, and to better understand mortgage companies.
The claims process starts with filing the claim. You can start a claim online1, or call our 24/7 claims reporting line at 1-800-672-5246.
Why is my mortgage company included on my settlement check?
Your mortgage company may be on your settlement check because it has a financial interest in your property. Your policy might require us to protect your mortgage company by including it as a payee on the check, especially if your mortgagee is listed on your policy.
What should I do if I receive a check with my mortgage company listed?
Contact your mortgage company’s home insurance department for a list of information needed to release the funds as the work is completed.
The most common documents your mortgage company may request from you are:
- A copy of the adjuster’s report (the AAA repair estimate)
- An adjuster’s worksheet (AAA’s settlement letter or email acts in place of an adjuster’s worksheet)
Working with your AAA insurance agent is a good way to make sure you have all your insurance needs covered. You can also sign in to your online AAA account to review your policies, deductibles, and coverage.
