How to File A Property Insurance Claim

 

The University loss sharing deductible on all Property Damage/Loss claims is $2,500.  Claims with a total loss under this amount will not be eligible for reimbursement.

 

To begin an insurance claim process, please download the Property Insurance checklist and then complete the Property Damage/Loss Claim report.  The completed form should be emailed as an attachment to RiskManagement@columbia.edu per the instructions on the form.  Supporting documentation can scanned and emailed to riskmanagement@columbia.edu.  Most claims should include digital pictures, a Columbia Public Safety and/or police report, and other supporting documentation as appropriate. 

 

One person from the department must be designated as the departmental contact.  That person will be responsible for providing information to the Insurance and Risk Management department when requested, conducting any necessary investigation, and acting as the point person throughout the claims process.
