FAQ

What is a deductible?

The deductible is the amount you agree to contribute in the event a covered loss occurs. Subject to all other policy provisions, Jewelers Mutual will pay the remainder of the covered loss after the deductible. You can change your deductible by contacting your agent.

How are payments handled?

If a deductible applies, you would be responsible for that amount. Jewelers Mutual would pay the remaining portion of the covered loss (up to policy limits). If you have a mortgage or lien holder listed on the policy, they must also be placed on the check. We are not able to remove a mortgagee or lien holder from payment. 

Can I choose who will do repairs to my property?

Yes. Your claims representative will work with your choice of vendor or contractor.

Do I need to file a police report for property damage or loss due to theft?

Yes. If a crime has been committed your policy requires you to report losses to the appropriate authorities.

What if I don't have all the information about my loss right now? Should I wait to file a claim?

No, we urge you to file your claim as soon as possible after the loss has occurred. Then, if you come across additional information that would help your claims representative with the claim, provide it to him or her at that point.

What do you need to show proof of ownership for stolen property?

Purchase receipts, owner’s manuals or product packaging, appraisals or photographs of the items in your business can show proof of ownership for stolen property.

What else can I do if I have time before my first meeting with a claims representative?

If you can, prepare a room-by-room inventory of damages and losses. This may include gathering manufacturer names, model numbers and purchase dates.

When do I pay my deductible and to whom do I pay it?

Your deductible will be subtracted from the amount of your loss before the settlement payment is delivered. You will likely pay the amount of your deductible directly to your contractor once repairs are completed.
