- The claim failed to include enough information
- The initial claim did not include proof of damages
- Your claim failed to meet the filing deadline

Damages You May Be Eligible for in Your Farmers Property Claim
Your insurance plan will outline the exact damages Farmers will cover and the situations they are liable to cover. For example, some plans have exclusion for flooding or losses resulting from earthquakes.
Our team will need to review your coverage to provide an accurate estimate of your damages. However, many Farmers plans cover the following types of damages:
Your plan may cover the cost to repair damage to your home and ancillary structures, such as a separate garage, workshop, deck, shed, or stand-alone structure on your property.
In many cases, insurance plans will cover the cost to clean up your property, including removal of debris and cutting and hauling away fallen trees. They may also cover the cost to replant trees and other landscaping elements.
If you are unable to live in your home after the damage occurs, Farmers may cover temporary relocation costs. Covered costs may include hotel stays, meals or groceries, and other incidentals.
Your Farmers plan may also cover the loss of personal items, such as clothing, shoes, electronics, books, furniture, and other items inside your home or business.
