Filing a Claim

When do I file a Claim?

The policy requires that you report a claim as soon as practicable but before the expiration date or any earlier cancellation date of the policy. It is important to note that failure to comply with the notice requirements contained in the policy can result in loss of coverage under the policy.

What events require the filing of a Claim?

In general, any time a party, either orally or in writing, manifests an intention to hold the directors, officers, employees, volunteers or the organization responsible for an alleged wrongful act, you should provide the insurance company with written notice.

Who do I contact?

In writing (via certified mail), submit any claim notifications as follows:

American Specialty Insurance & Risk Services, Inc.
7609 W Jefferson Blvd Ste 150
Fort Wayne, IN 46804

Include your contact information, policy number and any documentation regarding the claim.

What do I provide?

Notice to the insurance company should be:

  1. in writing;
  2. sent by certified mail return receipt requested; and
  3. addressed to the insurance company under "Who do I contact?" as outlined above.

The notice should identify the named insured, policy number, and policy period along with your personal contact information.

Who handles the Defense?

It is the insurance company's duty to defend any Claim against any director, officer, employee, or volunteer or against the organization, for which coverage applies.
