Process My Claim


The 1st Action In assisting you with your Claim is to Review and understand your Policy, and the 2nd is to review if your policy is written either as a Replacement Cost and or an Actual Cash Value: Replacement cost policies provides you with the dollar amount needed to replace a damaged item with one of a similar kind and quality without deducting for depreciation (the decrease in value due to age, wear and tear, and other factors). Actual cash value policies pay the amount needed to replace the item minus depreciation. While Am-Cats is reviewing your police, we schedule a technical write up, a line-by-line estimate of the compromised items that are damaged due to the cause of the active peril as soon as you retain us to handle all structural repairs and process your loss.

Your Local Agent will be able to assist in providing you with the proper coverage and or extra coverage you may need. Please review all our preferred agents in your area.
