Home Inventory

Natural disasters can strike any where at any time. It is important to be prepared in the event there is damage to your home. A room-by-room inventory of your home - along with photos and proof of ownership - will make it easier to fill an accurate, detailed insurance claim if your home is damaged or destoryed.

A Home Inventory Checklist (in Adobe .pdf formate*) provided by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) may be helpful in completing an inventory of your home.

Store your home inventory and related documents in a safe, easily accessible place online, on your computer, in a fire-proof box or a safe deposit box. Consider sharing a copy with friends, relatives and your insurance provider.

iPhone® users - The NAIC's free myHOME downloadable app lets you quickly photograph and capture descriptions of your possessions room by room, then store electronically for safekeeping. View the video demo.

Android® users - With the myHome home inventory app, you can quickly capture images, descriptions, and serial numbers of your possessions, then organize the information by room or by category. The app creates a back-up file for email sharing. View the video demo.
