If there’s one thing most people can agree on it’s that getting into an auto accident, even a minor one, is upsetting. And the claims process following an accident just adds to an already stressful situation. So, we at Federated Insurance decided it was time to make the entire experience just a little bit easier for you: we’ve developed a fully digital Express Claim service.

We’re dedicated to delivering a better, faster claims experience. With our new Express Claim service, your appraisal will be complete within a half day. How are we able to accomplish this? By allowing our adjusters and appraisers to work remotely with you through your smartphone to capture photos of the damage in real time.

Our Express Claim service is another innovative step towards a better insurance experience for our customers.

So how does it work?

Picture this. The worst has happened: you’ve been in a fender bender and now you need to start the process of reporting the problem and resolving your claim. But, luckily, you’re insured by Federated and have access to our Express Claim service. Here’s how it works:

If you’re in an auto accident, call the Federated claims team. We’ll text or email a link to the Express Claim platform to your phone, and once you’ve opened it, you can snap some photos of the damage to your car and send them along.

The standard photo set needed will include pictures of the vehicle from all four corners, pictures of the damage, the VIN number, the license plate number, and the odometer. Once those pictures have been taken, you simply tap to send them directly to your claims adjuster in real time! Heads up! Working with the link and attaching photos will use mobile data, unless you’re using Wi-Fi.
