State Farm® policyholders affected by the Las Conchas wildfire are asked to contact their agent
Albuquerque, N.M., June 28, 2011 - Residents evacuated from their homes and insured with State Farm Insurance are encouraged to contact their State Farm agent right awayeven if they don’t know whether their property is affected by the Las Conchas wildfire.
State Farm agents who have been evacuated from Los Alamos have set up temporary offices with their phones routed to take policyholder calls.
“Our first priority is taking care of our State Farm customers’ needs as quickly as possible,” says Vice President-Operations Troy Turner. “It is important for those affected by the wildfire to let us know how to contact them. We also encourage our policyholders to save their receipts for any temporary living expenses they incur.”
The State Farm Homeowners policy provides temporary living expense coverage for homeowners required to evacuate, such as hotel and food expenses, subject to their policy deductible.
Until residents and claims personnel are allowed back into the fire area, it is too early to estimate the number of homes damaged by the fire.
State Farm is the largest insurer of homes and vehicles in New Mexico and the U.S.
