State Farm Expands Operations At Fairgrounds

Posted: Updated:
Jackson -

As of this week, the nations' largest insurance company, State Farm® has received more than 37,000 home and auto claims from across the southeastern United States and more than 19,000 in Mississippi. Because of the large number of claims that continue to add up more than a week after the wind and hailstorm, State Farm has expanded its operation at the Mississippi State Fairgrounds and brought in additional resources. The expanded operation  allows space for additional claim representatives and equipment needed to assist customers. The company continues to operate mobile claim sites in Clinton, Brandon, Vicksburg, and McComb. Claim representatives will continue to assist policyholders with claims on Easter Sunday.

 

Members of the media who are interested in taking pictures of the newly expanded mobile claim site at the Jackson Fairgrounds and of policyholders receiving assistance with hail damaged vehicles are asked to contact Public Affairs in advance. (770-243-9049)

 

State Farm policyholders are asked to call their agent or 1-(800)-SF-CLAIM (1-800-732-5246) in order to report damage. They can also visit www.StateFarm.com.

Additional Helpful Information for Consumers:

  • Work with your insurance agent or claims adjustor to fully understand the claims process.
  • Choose a reputable roofing contractor and/or auto body shop.
  • Look for a licensed or bonded roofer and request references. Not all jurisdictions require licensing of roofing contractors. Ask to see certificates of insurance to be sure both liability and workers compensation insurance coverage is carried, and are in force during the time the work is being done.
  • You may also contact your local Better Business Bureau or the National Roofing Contractors Association for assistance in locating a professional contractor in a specific geographic area.
  • If anyone visits your home without an appointment and professes to represent your insurer, or to be there at the request of your insurer, ask for identification and contact your insurer to confirm before allowing access.
  • State Farm customers who have reported a loss can expect to be contacted by a claim representative who will review your policy and explain your coverage, outline the claim process and answer questions.
