The bad news:
Inadequate insurance and loss valuation disputes are slowing recovery from the devastating 2017 wildfires in Northern CA, according to UP's most recent Roadmap to Recovery survey
A full 6 months after losing their homes, 80% of survey respondents have NOT settled the dwelling portion of their insurance claims
66% reported that their homes were underinsured by an average of $317,000
The good news: For some survivors, insurance companies are waiving inventory requirements and being more flexible than they have after past disasters.
These survey results are clear proof that we can and must improve the way insurers are handling catastrophe insurance claims in every state. UP is dedicated to this goal.
