Understanding First Notice of Loss (FNOL)

S&A Construction, Inc. has a great deal of experience working with the many insurance companies in the Wichita, KS metro area. One of the critical stages of insurance coverage we’ve found to be is the First Notice of Loss (FNOL). Simply translated, the FNOL is the policy holder informing the insurance company of a loss.

FNOL Starts the Insurance Claim Process

A loss may be a result of a theft, flood, fire, destruction, break-in, etc. and is to real property and/or personal property covered under the terms of your policy. The FNOL starts the insurance claim process and the filing of a formal claim. Failing to report a loss to your insurance company at the first notice of loss could impact the coverage for any damage.

Best Place to make a FNOL

To make a FNOL, you should contact your insurance agent or the agency’s call center. The call center is typically reached via a toll-free phone number and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. This is a critical customer service step between you and your insurance company and helps you with future steps in the claims process.
