To Report a Catastrophe Claim

  • What is a Catastrophe?
    A catastrophe is a natural, widespread disaster including hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, windstorms, hailstorms and earthquakes to name a few.

    Be Prepared!
    We hope our policyholders never experience a catastrophe or have a catastrophic loss. However, in the event of forecasted severe weather, our CAT Information Center provides policyholders with resources to help prepare, protect, and recover from such an event. This site provides information on preparing for a natural disaster, weather forecasting, and links to helpful sites such as the American Red Cross and The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). You can also follow us on Twitter ( @Lex_Ins ) for real time weather updates and helpful resources and information.

    When a loss does occur, we understand the circumstances policyholders may face and provide several options for reporting claims.

    For policyholders, the preferred method of reporting a first notice of loss during a catastrophic event is to follow the general rule of reporting the claim to your broker or program administrator.

    In the event that your broker or program administrator cannot be immediately reached, please use one of the following options to contact us directly:

    Lex Call One® is our toll-free claims reporting hotline that enables our policyholders, brokers, and program administrators to report catastrophe claims, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Once reported, a reference number will be provided for tracking purposes. To report a claim to our Lex Call One professionals, call (800) 931-9546.
